Have you ever thought to spice up your morning café offering with a dose of chocolate goodness? If you haven’t, you must! Coffee and chocolate are ying and yang, and a range of wholesale confectionery treats exist that can be seamlessly mixed with your customer’s daily pick-me-up to give it an exciting twist. |
Rich Heritage and Rich Flavours
The practice of blending these two delicacies is almost an art in and of itself, as both compliment each other’s similarities as well as subtle differences. Indeed, both have long and eventful histories that can traced back to humid climates. Chocolate was brought over to Europe from the pre-Columbian peoples of Mesoamerica around the fifteenth century, and coffee by eager traders across the Middle East and North Africa during the same time period. Both offer an exciting spectrum of flavours, whether it be sweet and zesty or dark and mellow, and finding the perfect combinations across these is as rewarding as mixing a cocktail, while also providing great opportunity to offer customers something to enjoy and take home.
Indulge and Inspire
We at hf Chocolates get to see a wide range of wholesale confectionery that has embraced the mouth-watering potential of the coffee/chocolate alliance. You can explore the intricate mixing of beans, milk, cream and sugar across an enticing selection of formats, flavours and brands from our selection.
For a smooth indulgence for your customers, don’t miss Gudrun’s selection of miniature delicacies, including their latte macchiato ganache cups, cappuccino butter creams and, last but not least, coffee cocoa-dusted truffles! The enticingly layered ganache cup would be hard not to catch even the most resistant customers eye, while just one cocoa-dusted truffle will likely be enough to convert patrons to lifelong loyalists to the coffee / chocolate cause! Also to be explored are the chocolate coated coffee bean treats from Sweet Boutique and Ko-Koá, perfect for a little midday energy burst or an after-dinner treat. The elegantly ribboned assorted coffee bean selection bags from Sweet Boutique also make the perfect gift for any customer looking to indulge a special someone.
You will find the range of coffee-infused wholesale confectionery in our selection leaves nothing to the imagination, with cocoa-covered beans available across an enviable selection of flavours, from your standard dark, milk and white to the slightly more provocative amaretto and tiramisu.
Mix and Match
Once you’ve whetted their appetite, why not inspire your customers with some of their own mixology? A coffee-and-chocolate display with helpful pointers and recipes could be an interesting and different marketing tool for your premises.
You could suggest adding the chocolate straight up to their coffee beverages – this can be tastily achieved with a chocolate syrup or via a little sprinkling of dutched cocoa powder. Alternatively, for something a little more technical, recommend taking a crack at grinding up some cocoa nibs and adding them straight to the beans before brewing – the results will be sure not to disappoint!
