This Hot Chocolate Rocks! Totally pure and bursting with flavour, it is made with one of the world’s great Single Estate cacaos that Willie's found in Medellin, Colombia. This is what gives it its incredible richness and depth of flavour. It is 100% natural, containing only two ingredients, cacao and raw cane sugar. Willie's makes it from the bean with the same uncompromising commitment to quality as with their chocolate. The beans get a light roast, and then they conche for up to 21 days until the flavour is perfect. Finally they press out some of the butter using early 20th century cocoa butter presses, and mill it into a powder with the raw cane sugar. Use to make either hot or cold drinks, and for vegan drinks use non dairy milks like almond.
MEET THE MAKERSWillie Harcourt-Cooze, the pioneering Chocolate Man, has redefined how millions of people worldwide think about chocolate. Using only the world’s great single estate cacaos and 100% natural ingredients, his aim is to introduce everyone to real chocolate with pure, beautiful flavours. Willie buys his beans direct from the farmers *, then makes them into chocolate in small batches in his factory in England, using neither vanilla nor soya lecithin, so preserving the highly individual flavours of the beans. One batch may take up to 21 days compared to industrial chocolate which is made in a few hours. Good things in life are worth waiting for. Willie’s dream of making the world’s best chocolate was born on Hacienda El Tesoro, his cacao farm high in the Cloud Forest in Venezuela, and was dramatized in his television shows and cook books.
