Chocs and Coffee in the City – 14 June 2012

June 5, 2012

Featured, News

Slow Food Mother City has joined with Fair Trade Coffee roastery, Bean There and artisan chocolate makers,Honest Chocolate, to bring our members the perfect winter’s evening event.

The producers of these two ethically sourced, locally finished and totally tasty products have recently opened for business in the City, just a few doors away from each other in Wale Street.

We’ll be visiting them both in one night!  Half of the Slow Food Mother City group will learn about and taste the chocolate, the other the coffee – then we’ll swap over.

At Honest (66 Wale Street), Michael and Anthony will talk about how they source and create their delicious, nutritious raw organic chocolate. You will then get a chance to dip four truffle bonbons to take home in one of Honest’s beautifully designed gift boxes.

At Bean There’s roastery (58 Wale Street), you will be given the background about their Fair Trade farmers from across Africa, and how the coffee is grown, processed, and then, finally, roasted by Khanyiso right there in Wale Street. This short overview will be followed by a cupping (like a wine tasting, but for coffee) of three of Bean There’s origin coffees.

We can only accommodate 20 people, so this one’s going to fill up fast!  One guest only per member, please.
