Cafédirect Hot Chocolate: São Tomé Instant Hot Chocolate
Sumptuously smooth and chocolate, made with sweet criollo beans.
São Tomé, also known as Chocolate Island, is steeped in cocoa farming history and has an unparalleled reputation for growing some of the most prized cocoa beans on earth – the criollo bean. This is due to the islands location on the equator, rich soils, the perfect balance of temperature along with the perfect humidity and forest shade. The result is a delicious, sweet, delicate (and Fairtrade of course!) cocoa which gives São Tomé its rich, smooth taste.
With only four ingredients and no added nasties you’re guaranteed a truly natural flavour in every cup!
To the ancient Aztec civilizations, chocolate had special powers. When spiritual wisdom, energy and sexual prowess were required, chocolate was the answer! These days, we understand the power of chocolate on a more subtle level and these delicious single origin cocoas are perfect for a bit of liquid indulgence.
