  • Swiss Grand Cru Drinking Chocolate - Dark


Swiss Grand Cru Grated Maracaibo 65% Drinking Chocolate - Dark

1 lb - Switzerland

This Swiss Grand Cru drinking dark chocolate powder has become a Chef Shop house favorite. If you like hot chocolate and are always disappointed when you make a cup from a powdered mix, then this drinking chocolate will change your life!

It’s easy to make a decadent demitasse cup, and you’ll get delicious results using heavy cream, milk, oat milk, or even skim milk.

Grand Cru drinking chocolate is premium, created by the Swiss from primo Venezuelan cocoa beans, and will never disappoint!

Chocolate was consumed solely as a beverage – and a bitter drink it was – by the Central and South Americans, and this practice continued for centuries after Spanish explorers brought it back to Europe.

When the Dutch developed a process to remove the cocoa butter from the beans, the result was a smoother, darker cocoa powder, and the use of cocoa greatly expanded beyond just a beverage.

The Swiss Grand Cru drinking dark chocolate powder is top grade, a product steeped in history, and whatever milk you choose, it is guaranteed to be divine!


The perfectly balanced combination of coffee and plum aroma complements the distinctive cocoa flavour. The traditional process brings out the scent of orange blossom and cinnamon. This gives the Maracaibo Clasificado 65% a festive touch, which is underpinned by the slightly sweet sultana bouquet and ends with the long finale.
