Roasted pineapple coffee cake

Coffee and cocoa: they are meant to meet in delicious creations. Not only are they both all-natural products, enjoying a tropical, sunny and humid equatorial climate. Both cocoa and coffee beans are dried and roasted in their natural shells to preserve even the most delicate flavours and aromas. This cake is my ultimate tribute to these two fantastic ingredients and their love for one another.
