Reed Smith Cocoa Runners Chocolate Tasting

Last night the Cocoa Runners team were invited to do a private chocolate tasting at Reed Smith, a large law firm with offices around the world. That’s exciting in itself, but their London office is on the 33rd floor of one of London’s tallest buildings and has these spectacular views of the city.

We’ve done many chocolate tastings, but this was certainly one of our most unusual venues!

We think it’s great when people want to learn about real chocolate, and Reed Smith wanted the big picture. Around 50 staff stayed after work to spend a couple of hours finding out all about the bean-to-bar chocolate movement and tasting eight different bars that we’d specially chosen to illustrate the different ways in which modern chocolate makers work.

Together we tried chocolates from Pacari, Original Beans, Mast Brothers, Taza, The Chocolate Tree, Menakao and Marou. All fabulous, and all quite different.

As well as tasting the chocolate, our new friends got to see how chocolate is made from the bean and found out about chocolate’s complex history.

We love doing these tasting, and always get a kick out of sharing great chocolate, as well as hearing about people’s favourites.
