Prep your bodies for a weekend of pure indulgence—The Chocolate And Coffee Festival is coming back to Auckland and this time it's bigger and better than ever.
As proof that coffee and chocolate make the most decadent of pairings—New Zealand’s finest coffee makers, chocolatiers and culinary masters are joining their sweet and aromatic forces together and turning The Cloud into a Willy Wonka factory (minus the questionable Oompa Loompa labour policies).
Featuring nothing but the best, over 60 exhibitors will be working their magic and providing Aucklanders with premium coffee, choc and street food. Bring it on.
For the first time, baking queen Annabelle White will be running masterclasses on both days. Expect to level up your know-how on cooking with chocolate to unsurpassed heights. That's a big yes from us.
And in exciting news, the chocolate and coffee lounge will be back in operation this year. Lounge ticket holders will receive a goodie bag and enjoy a selection of cheeses, Arnott’s crackers and Loveblock wine – all matched with chocolate. Yum.
So who's coming? For the chocolate lovers, prepare to send your taste buds into overdrive with the likes of Foundry Chocolate, Hogarth Craft Chocolate, Fruney and Philippe’s Chocolate, as well as the likes of Samaori with many more yet to be announced.
Snap up your tickets, clear your calendars, bring your comfy pants and make your caffeinated chocolate and coffee dreams come true this November.
