In a tiny space on Davis Street in Oak Cliff, you can find CocoAndré Chocolatier. And if you do happen to find it, you'll discover something special: a passionate chocolatier with a particularly interesting story about a rediscovered chocolate once thought to be extinct.

On this particular day, Andrea Pedraza presented me with her Fortunato No. 4 Truffle and Fortunato No. 4 Chocolate Bar, along with a Fortunato No. 4 Macaron from Samantha Rush of Rush Patisserie. She told me the chocolate would be nutty, floral and pure. It was, with sea salt sitting atop the truffle a bit of cream inside:

Then the bar: pure chocolate that really let the nutty flavor emerge:

And finally the Macaron, my favorite. It was crispy, chewy, sweet and perfect:

CocoAndre and Rush Patisserie are both the first exclusive Texas carriers of this Pure Nacional Cacao, as of yesterday in fact, so you won't get this bliss anywhere else.
