Sometime before the announcement of the closure of Border’s Books, my youngest daughter and I spent some time there, and enjoyed a chocoholic’s feast at the in-store coffee shop, Seattle’s Best Coffee.  Now that Border’s is closed, I suppose these treats can be found at any Seattle’s Best Coffee location…

Chocolate Chunk Brownie

Location:  811 SE 160th Avenue, Vancouver, WA

Order:  Chocolate Javakula, Hot Chocolate (for my daughter) and a Chocolate Chunk Brownie (I told you this was a chocoholic’s feast, didn’t I?)

What I Think:

Being a lover of tea, I had ordered a chai latte before I noticed that at the register, they had the cutest samples of their Chocolate Javakula.  Asking first if they had coffee in them (coffee doesn’t agree with me), I was assured that there was not and I tried this heavenly chocolate drink.  I changed my order after the first sip!  YUM!

Chocolate Javakula

The Chocolate Javakula is an ice-blended drink that was perfect for this very warm afternoon.  It is sweet, rich and chocolate-y; not to mention incredibly cooling because of the ice.  Imagine your favorite hot chocolate turned into an ice slush!  That’s what this tastes like.  Now imagine it topped with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle.  (commence drooling!)  It was perfect liquid refreshment for this chocoholic.

My daughter had a rich, creamy hot chocolate which was also topped with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle, plus a little bite of chocolate on the side.

But of course, this wasn’t enough chocolate for us… we had to go for it, and go big!  We also ordered their Chocolate Chunk Brownie.  They warmed it up for us, which made the huge chocolate chunks in the brownie melt slightly.  It was fudge-y and gooey.  It was heavenly!

My Final Thoughts:

We don’t get out like that very often, but, it sure was a nice treat.  I’m sad that Border’s has closed… it was my favorite book store.  Not just for the eats, but I love the casual atmosphere, and they had a great spot for kids there where they could browse through books to find just what they wanted.  I will miss Borders!
