Sloane’s make Posh Hot Chocolate! It takes half a day to shine their unique chocolate beads. Inspired by the great Sir Hans Sloane – Physician to King George I and II, who in the late 17th century tasted a cocoa drink whilst on a trip to in Jamaica and came up with the idea of combining it with milk to make a more palatable drink. He then sold his recipe to the chocolate houses in London, including Whites of Soho.
Fast forward 300 years and today Sir Hans Sloane sell their Posh Hot Chocolate to many coffee shops and restaurants, so they can serve a Hot Chocolate that is as good as their coffee. Their range includes Smooth Milk, Rich Dark, Madagascar 67%, Ecuador 70% and our new Barista Blend of Milk and Dark Chocolate. Their unique chocolate beads are ideal for barista use and melt quickly in hot milk.
Here is what some of Sir Hans Sloane’s coffee shop customers have to say:
Water’s Edge, Horsell, Surrey: “Working in partnership with local artisan suppliers like Sloane’s is core to our ethos. We are proud to work with this fabulous chocolate across many levels from our brownies, to our gourmet hot chocolate and our delicious cakes.”
Fortitude Café, Edinburgh: “We are proud to have such a high-quality product on our menu. We especially love Sloane’s Rich Dark drinking chocolate which is a real favourite amongst our customers. We have used Sloane’s since first opening and we would definitely never change.”
Piezanos, Colnbrook: “Every customer that tries our Sloane’s hot chocolate becomes an instant convert. Whether they drink it in its original form, or as the base for one of our own concoctions It’s constantly referred to as “real” hot chocolate! One of our customers simply asks for a cup of love now. That name’s starting to catch on, and we know exactly how they feel!”
The Sorting Office, Truro, Cornwall: “Lots of our customers comment on how we do the best mochas around because they are so smooth and chocolatey but not too rich or sweet. Our customers say they can taste the quality in the real chocolate used in our mochas as opposed to some places which use a chocolate syrup which has an artificial chocolate flavour.”
