The concept of Cocoa Coffee is making a cup of coffee from cocoa beans instead of coffee. The cocoa nibs are processed to create espresso (not coffee espresso) which can then be used as a replacement. Cocoa coffee has an amazingly addictive taste, not sweet not bitter but you neither feel the need to add any sugar. It is healthier for you and it takes a while to kick in which is good as you wouldnt need to overload yourself with excessive coffee. Above all I just love the concept of walking in to a chocolaterie and experiencing all these amazing new concepts which incorporate coffee – a very important part of the hot drinks culture. Next time you pay Roast and Conch a visit do make sure to order a cocoa cappuccino – you won’t regret it!
The Roast and Conch, a cafe run by Hotel Chocolat on Monmouth Street is a place I wish I could visit more often. The Cocoa Capuccinos/Lattes/Espressos concept is intriguing and healthier than the pure coffee we all drink on a daily basis.
