Consious choc

We're wanted to find a chocolate partner who felt the same way about their chocolate as we do about our coffee; It should be delicious, exciting, quality, ethical, original and so much more than just something to consume - a gateway to a heightened sense of wellbeing!

We are delighted and excited to have joined forces with Conscious Chocolate and now include amazing 60g bars in our Luxury Coffee Gift Boxes range and their sister company's Chocolate-Ginger Raw Snacks in our Good to Go Kits. All are lovingly handmade made with the finest, ethically sourced raw ingredients for a dreamy, indulgent treat without using refined sugar - in short you can be conscious of quality and health, without compromising on taste.

The chocolate bars are organic, vegan and raw, free from dairy, soya, gluten, palm oil and refined sugars and the packaging is plastic free, recyclable and home compostable. The coloured printing is achieved through the use of vegetable inks, finished with a water-based varnish. Their factory is powered by 100% renewable energy - we are so aligned in our thinking DO IT RIGHT : HAPPY PLANET that this connection was meant to be!

We wanted to include chocolate that also reflected the mood of our coffees, and after careful consideration (and lots of tasting nom nom!) we settled on Maca and Spirulina, The Dark Side 85%, Love Potion No.9 and Crystallised Fijian Ginger-Choc Snack.

Check out our gift selection for a more detailed description of each, and if you're not already convinced, here's some more help...
