Store and café opening 15th December. From the press release:
“Luxury British chocolatier and cocoa grower, Hotel Chocolat, is excited to announce the opening of a brand new store in Fredrick Street, Edinburgh – the company’s first in Scotland. Alongside Hotel Chocolat’s stunning range of chocolate, this new store is the first to incorporate a ground breaking new café concept, the Coffee Vs Cocoa Bar, which is set to revolutionise café culture.
It features a range of delicious and exclusive new drinks made possible by cocoa roasting techniques newly developed by Hotel Chocolat. Customers choose from a traditional coffee menu and decide whether they would like their espresso, latte or cappuccino prepared with freshly roasted coffee or cocoa beans. The key difference between these new cocoa drinks and the heavier, hot chocolate style drinks is stark, as Angus Thirlwell, Hotel Chocolat CEO, explains, “By using our new roasting techniques, we have succeeded in capturing the amazingly fresh and invigorating flavours of the whole cocoa bean, which puts it firmly on a par with coffee. What’s more, cocoa is high in anti-oxidants, caffeine and trace minerals and, unless otherwise stated, all the cocoa is from our own Rabot Estate plantation in Saint Lucia.””
