A Fresh Batch of PDX Chocolates

Jeremy Karp’s Batch PDX is mixing some of Portland’s favorite things (Booze! Coffee! Ghost peppers! More Booze!) and covering them with chocolate.

We developed a crush on Batch PDX’s Spicy Passion truffle in our Food Lover’s Guide last September, but with the new year that crush has turned into full-on obsession. There’s something about Jeremy Karp’s grown-up flavors that keep our fingers mysteriously returning to the box for another hit.

From the Oregon-grown chiles in that fateful spiked passionfruit number to the sweetened condensed milk in his cup-shaped Thai Iced Tea truffle, Karp knows how to read Portland’s ever-changing cravings and turn them into bite-sized confections.

Other recent hits? The elegant Columbian Espresso with locally roasted coffee is a natural fit for the market, and Karp’s lineup of cocktail-inspired treats—including the Margarita, Piña Colada, Dark & Stormy, and Rye—perfectly capture the booze-soaked zeitgeist, making Batch PDX one to watch in the growing legions of local chocolatiers.

Want to get your hands on a box of these beauties? Batch PDX chocolates can be ordered by calling Karp directly at 503-913-3789 or by emailing jeremy@batchpdx.com (after you check out the full line of truffles on the Batch PDX website). Individual truffles can also be found at Cacao, ‎3 Doors Down Cafe, and Wildwood.
