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.
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.
Do you love great chocolate? Would you like Cocoa Runners to come and do a tasting at your office? Why not get in touch to see how we can work together!
We’re delighted to announce that Michel Cluizel is now in the Chocolate Library.
Cluizel is one of France’s premier bean-to-bar chocolate makers and has been producing their own chocolate from the bean since 1971. The company is proud of its artisan heritage, and has become one of France’s most respected chocolate makers.
You can find out more about Michel Cluizel and browse a complete list of bars on their chocolate maker profile.
