This is the spot where we doff our little chocolatiers cap to all things lovely. We’ll get round to all the good stuff in good time: you simply can’t rush things like appreciation.
Volcano Coffee Works:
What do you need to know other than, yes please. As well as tentacles in all the fine locales, these coffee doyens do a fine cup just down the road at Bambino’s on Church Road in Crystal Palace.
Beamish & McGlue:
Worth a look just to see the beautiful packaging of all the top produce. That’s not to mention the fact there’s quite simply, a brilliantly edited selection of goodies.
A whole world of handmade bits and bobs to ogle and potentially get your paws on. We’ve got a little shop on there too, so always good to keep the palms greased (with cocoa oil).
These bods make tasty twists on cocoa nibs (they flavour the smashed shards of cocoa bean). There’s nothing like them on the market too as far as we can tell – so good for them. They’ve managed an original cocoa product that tastes brilliant on ice cream, in dishes, or just (surprisingly) just gobbled as a snack.
Cannon & Cannon:
Firing on all cylinders, this neat little charcuterie is putting it British Charcuterie on the map, and of course happens to purvey the finest continental cured-produce as well. They’re in Borough/Brixton market, have their own restaurant and supply all sorts of discerning establishments.
They also stock a few of our chocs – of the un-cured variety of course.
