Coffee Infusion

Ingredients: Coffee Infusion

Preparation: Coffee Infusion

  1. Add the glucose syrup, the inverted sugar and the butter to the infusion.
  2. In a tall recipient, add the chocolate.
  3. Heat the infusion mixture to 50-55°C (122-131°F).
  4. Pour the heated mixture over the chocolate and allow a few moments for heat transfer.
  5. Blend well and ensure a proper emulsion.
  6. Scrape to ensure that all the chocolate has been incorporated into the ganache and blend again to remove any remaining lumps.
  7. The temperature of the ganache should be 28-29°C (82-84°F).
  8. Pour the ganache into a piping bag, cut a small tip to control the flow and immediately pipe into the prepared molds.
  9. Place the filled molds in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to promote the crystallization of the ganache.
  10. Remove the molds from the refrigerator and allow the ganache to crystallize at 18-20°C (64-68°F) for at least 12 hours before closing the molds.
  11. Using a heat gun, slightly warm the top of the mold to barely melt the chocolate shells so that when closing the mold with pre-crystallized chocolate, the two will join together perfectly.
  12. Pour pre-crystallized chocolate into the mold and remove the excess with a palette knife.
  13. Make sure that the mold is completely sealed and place it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
  14. Remove from the fridge and slightly flex the mold to start unmolding.
  15. Cover with parchment paper and a metal tray, then flip it over and tap the mold with a spatula.
  16. Carefully lift the mold and carefully transfer the unmolded bonbons to a clean tray. If some bonbons remain in the mold, repeat the same process.
  17. After unmolding, handle the bonbons with soft cotton gloves to prevent fingerprints.
