Let’s Melbourne Again. This is a tribute to a city that fights hard, recognize sacrifice and dealt with 110 long, lonely and dark nights. This is for all of you! If I have to think of a flavour to represent Melbourne I would certainly think of coffee. This chocolate is not shy in flavour and will hit you with a double caffeine dose, just how you like it. Vertue Coffee Roaster and myself been working on this project where we pair a single origin coffee bean with a single origin cocoa bean. This translates in Liqudambar – Honduras Coffee and Makira Gold – Solomon Islands Cocoa. “Melbourne’s love affair with coffee can be traced back to the arrival of Italian and Greek immigrants after World War II. As a generation of migrants brought their beloved European-style espresso machines to Melbourne, the espresso boom of the 1950s soon became a way of life.” Let’s Melbourne Again, please.
Alessandro Luppolo is a pastry chef who has worked on 4 continents. He's worked with chocolate for many years but always as something "ready to use" when he started learning about where chocolate came from and how it was made he couldn't help but try making some himself. That's when the love of chocolate takes hold. Alessandro is passionate about make every bar make a difference and making every small batch of chocolate supremely special. Bringing to the table some unique perspectives from the kitchen, his interesting flavours are exciting, All the bars are wrapped in locally made dodgy paper which are hand made by the Pulp Professor who's motto is “every sheet has a story”. It's perfect because every chocolate bar tells a story too - what's in your hand? See more
