Description

Over the last few years from Budapest to Brooklyn and Saigon to San Francisco a growing band of cacao farmers and artisan makers have been pioneering a revolution in single estate, craft chocolate. Just as with coffee, the key to great chocolate starts with the finest beans and careful harvesting, fermentation and drying. And just as in coffee, so with chocolate “less is more”; craft chocolate makers are all about coaxing the full flavour of their beans, adding and taking away as little as possible. Cocoa Runners has spent the last few years running round the world and tasting these bars, and a curated selection of these bars is now available at WholeFoods stores in the UK


We’ll go under the hood of over a dozen craft chocolate makers and their bars, looking in detail at the intricacies of cacao genetics, harvest, fermentation, vintages, conching and roasting, and examining how each stage of cacao production can affect the flavour of a bar. And to celebtrate Valentine’s day, we will also explore the history of Chocolate and Valentine’s day and match tasting of craft chocolate with a pair of red wines.


6th February 6:30-8pm at our Fulham Broadway store.

14th February 6:30-8pm at our High Street Kensington store.
