Boston Stoker and Esther Price team up for tasty collaboration

Two iconic Dayton businesses have come together to create a special treat for the Gem City.

Boston Stoker Coffee Co. and Esther Price Candies announced the arrival of a new staple at all Boston Stoker shops: chocolate-covered espresso beans.

“We are excited to be able to combine two great Dayton favorites into one product” said Henry Dean, Boston Stoker president. “Chocolate and coffee — it doesn’t get any better than that.”

The beans made their debut at Boston Stoker coffee shops on Valentine’s Day weekend, and they are now permanently available, according to a release. Customers can choose between bags of dark chocolate beans, milk chocolate beans or a bag of mixed beans.

Each bag costs $6.

“These Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans are the true product of local collaboration,” Boston Stoker and Esther Price officials said in the release. “With Boston Stoker’s 48 years and Esther Price’s 96 years of family-owned, local service to the community, their combined experience has created a product we’re all sure to enjoy.”

The chocolate espresso beans are the first of several more special collaborations that are in the works, and which will be unveiled in coming months, according to Brian Johnson, spokesman for the two businesses.

“The thought of combining two delicious products was something we knew our customers would enjoy,” said Doug Dressman, president of Esther Price Candies. “We always love supporting and collaborating with local Dayton companies.”
