  • Description

    Do you want to go beyond just the chocolate box this Valentine’s Day? We’ve just the ticket! Bring along a loved one to our intimate craft chocolate tasting evenings in London this February. Our tasting will be held on Wednesday 12th February at Prufrock Coffee, two days before Valentine’s Day… Consider it the perfect gift!

    Here at Cocoa Runners, we’ve enjoyed tasting bars from artisan makers from all around the world. Tonight we’ll be bringing you a comprehensive tour of the world’s finest craft chocolate bars, crafted by different chocolate makers and from different cacao origins.

    This Valentine’s Day focused chocolate tasting will be a comprehensive introduction to the world of craft chocolate.

    Taste, learn, enjoy, ask questions (or just sit back) – this chocolate tasting is suitable for anyone and everyone interested in delving into the wonderful world of craft chocolate. And as a little Valentine’s Day special, we’ll be adding in a little Valentine’s twist.

    We’ll go under the hood of craft chocolate 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. With makers from Cleethorpes to Copenhagen, Woodbridge to Warsaw and San Francisco to Saigon, we’ll be tasting a wide range of bars along the way.

    We’ll also delve into the mass cocoa industry and educate why craft is a better choice. And do you know what stimulates your trigeminal nerve? If not, then that’s perfect as we’ll be showing you some after dinner tricks to play with taste and flavour, astringency and bitterness. We’ll also try some unique bars to match with the Valentine’s Day theme.

    The tasting will start promptly at 7.30pm, doors open at 7.15pm.


    How long does the event last?

    Our tasting starts at 7.30pm and we aim to wrap up just before 9pm.

    How many chocolates will we try?

    We’ll give you up to 15 different chocolates to try.

    Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

    No, everyone is welcome.
