We’re really excited to announce the opening of our brand new store in Fredrick Street, Edinburgh – our first in Scotland. Alongside our stunning range of chocolate, this new store is our first to incorporate the ground breaking new café concept, the Coffee Vs Cocoa Bar, which is set to revolutionise café culture.
It features a range of delicious and exclusive new drinks made possible by our newly developed cocoa roasting techniques. Customers choose from a traditional coffee menu and decide whether they would like their espresso, latte or cappuccino prepared with freshly roasted coffee or cocoa beans. The key difference between these new cocoa drinks and the heavier, hot chocolate style drinks is stark, by using our new roasting techniques, we have succeeded in capturing the amazingly fresh and invigorating flavours of the whole cocoa bean, which puts it firmly on a par with coffee. What’s more, cocoa is high in anti-oxidants, caffeine and trace minerals and, unless otherwise stated, all the cocoa is from our own Rabot Estate plantation in Saint Lucia.
This latest store further broadens our boutique store collection, which now boasts locations across the UK and the Channel Islands, as well as in New York and Boston, USA.
Don’t miss the open day of celebrations on 15th December with chilled prosecco and chocolate tasting for customers all day, as well as the chance to meet our Head Chocolatier, Olivier Nicod and myself! Plus, you can discover our ‘Winter Wonderland’ of gorgeous Christmas gift ideas – and not a moment too soon!
