Preparation Suggestions

Specialty drinking chocolate for hospitality

Real drinking chocolate, not just “cacao-powder”!

Rich and velvety European style drinking chocolate from various chocolate makers, handcrafted using ethically sourced cacao beans. By using some of the best cacao in the world, our chocolate makers are able to eliminate the need to use fillers in the chocolate (like added cocoa butter, soy lecithin, or vanilla) which lets the true flavors of the cacao shine through. All our drinking chocolates are made from the whole bean, they are not just “cacao-powder!”
