Coco Chocolate specializes in luxury, handmade and organic chocolate. All of their chocolate is made on the premises using the finest ingredients and hand-tempered on marble slabs. Their opulent treats are a far cry from cheaper mass produced chocolate, which replace high-quality cocoa and cocoa butter with sugar and vegetable oil, and there is a breathtaking selection of tempting goodies to choose from.
Some combinations (such as chocolate with chili or mint) may be familiar, but there are also more exotic combinations (such as rose and black pepper) to delight the palate. You can also enjoy their chocolates with specially chosen liqueurs and muscat wine, or with organic coffees and fine loose leaf tea.

Chocoholics can also take part in one of their tasting evenings - learn how real chocolate is made and have the opportunity to try chocolate made from beans from Madagascar and the Caribbean, along with a sparkling glass of 1994 Mas Amiel – the perfect accompaniment to these delights. At the end of the evening, you will receive a certificate proclaiming you to be a chocolate connoisseur!
Alternatively, why not attend their Chocolate School? Lucky participants learn about the history and method of chocolate-making and get to try their hand at making a variety of chocolates. At the end of the session, delegates receive a hamper with a selection of the chocolates they have created.
Coco Chocolate even offers a chocolate school specifically aimed at children – the ultimate treat for a young chocoholic. Places for all of these sessions are limited and in high demand so you must book early to avoid disappointment.
