The anti coffee manifesto
This is a place for all those people who aren’t coffee addicts.
I have always adored hot chocolate but a few years after working on a project that involved a historic chocolate kitchen, I realised there is far more to hot chocolate than a children’s drink. It’s an ancient art, and done right, its freaking magical.
I want to try to blog as many hot chocolates as I can from as many places as possible so you know where to go to find the best.
What do you think makes the perfect hot chocolate?
I love rich, dark, thick hot chocolates that are bitter rather than sweet.
What ruins a hot chocolate?
Too much milk foam and marshmallows. Marshmallows toasted over a bbq = yes. In a hot chocolate = jesus no, get out.
What’s your real life job?
Sadly I’m not yet employed as a full-time hot chocolate tester. I work for a heritage organisation managing and developing temporary exhibitions. It’s amazingly good fun and hard work.
