The Coffee and Chocolate Expo returns once again, following outstanding reviews in 2015, the show reappears to host both a new visual extravaganza and an opportunity to sample some of SA’s finest coffee and chocolate delights.
The 2016 Coffee & Chocolate show will bring a new experience with several different themed areas designed to create both a visual and sensory experience. Visitors can learn tips, techniques and latest trends from the masters on how to create their own chocolate and coffee delights; put their taste buds to action or simply unwind in an atmosphere that is synonymous with relaxation.
Our new visual and experiential areas include:
The 'Mardi Gras Experience', an area that hosts a visionary sensation of Coffee & Chocolate and is home to our famous Pairing Theatre, pairing whisky, wine and liqueur with chocolate. Sample taste and celebrate all things delicious and decadent!
