THE SINGLE SERIES: PUMP STREET BAKERY CHOCOLATE

Feb 8, 2016 | Collaborations

On February 8th, Crosstown launches a limited edition chocolate doughnut in partnership with award winning bean to bar UK producer, Pump Street Bakery. The collaboration is the third in Crosstown’s Single Series range, which uses select single origin ingredients from like-minded partners to create a range of unique premium doughnut flavours.
The new doughnut combines Crosstown’s chocolate sourdough with Pump Street Bakery’s Ecuador Hacienda Limon 75% dark chocolate in 3 ways to showcase the intense flavours of the bean; a dark chocolate custard filling topped with a chocolate ganache and finished with a sprinkling of dark chocolate shavings. Crosstown selected this particular chocolate for its rich, arthritis dark flavour and notes of caramel, roasted coffee and honey – flavours that typify a bitter-sweet chocolate lover’s doughnut.

The collaboration is the third in Crosstown’s Single Series range, which uses select ingredients from like-minded partners to create a range of unique premium doughnut flavours. The partnership draws focus to Pump Street Bakery and Crosstown’s shared passions for both sourdough and chocolate. Both producers also have a strong focus on handmade processes, and using quality seasonal ingredients.

The Single Series

The Single Series is an on-going collaborative project launched by Crosstown. The concept will see Crosstown pair select ingredients from premium brands, to create limited edition unique flavours of doughnuts that celebrate the best of flavour in single origin/sourced produce. The first Single Series kicked off in November 2015 with three ingredients to create three separate doughnut flavours; Coffee, Whisky and Chocolate.
