Sweetheart Got A Sweet Tooth? We’ve Got The Gift For You!
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a chocoholic, then look no further. Any hamper that includes a box of Chocoloza Belgian pralines will send your recipient to cloud nine.
Naturally African, Chocoloza chocolates
Apart from being totally delicious -and made with love- Chocoloza’s pralines are crafted from only the finest, locally-sourced ingredients. Chocoloza’s melt-in-your-mouth Belgian pralines’ flavour is unforgettable.
Chocoloza’s secret lies in their high quality ingredients and meticulous craftsmanship. They have truly perfected the art of making Belgian chocolates.
The folks at Chocoloza take care to only work with local suppliers that share their vision for producing excellent quality products that are both sustainable and environmentally friendly. This hearty brand uses organic and fair trade ingredients, and all their products are free from artificial flavours, aromas, preservatives and palm oil.
Chocoloza put in South Africa’s finest ingredients, coupled with artistry and a large helping of TLC, so that you can enjoy one-of-a-kind, socially responsible chocolates.
From cocoa beans to coffee berries
That’s right, coffee berries.
Coffee actually comes from a fruit. Coffee “beans” are the seeds of the fruit which happen to resemble –and thus referred to as– beans.
But wait, coffee gets even more remarkable with Bean There Coffee Company.
Sustainable fair trade coffee
Coffee lovers will swoon over a gift that includes Bean There’s Coffee.
Not only is it a taste sensation, but it’s made from the finest local and sustainably sourced coffee beans. In fact, Bean There Coffee Company is South Africa’s first certified fair trade coffee roaster.
Embark on a flavourful adventure with Bean There Coffee Company
Imagine if you could “know a country through its coffee”. That’s exactly what Bean There aims to achieve. Coffee beans vary in flavour depending on where and how they are grown. Bean There Coffee Company specialises in single origin coffee (unblended and from one growing region only), made from Africa’s finest quality coffee beans. With just one sip you’ll know exactly where your coffee beans originated – the perfect gift for a coffee connoisseur.
The Ruthagati Cooperative is located near the town of Karatina in Nyeri. Bean There Coffee Company has been purchasing coffee from Ruthagati since 2007 in increasing quantities year on year.
Bean There Coffee Company selects the best quality Arabica coffee beans from around the continent. They aim to make a sustainable difference to the lives of African coffee farmers, by “building relationships and promoting quality coffee”.
Coffee gets a huge portion of its flavour during the roasting process. Bean There Coffee Company’s master roasters treat the process like art, and –like any artist– they take pride in producing exceptional results. So you’ll experience perfect, socially conscious coffee in every cup.
Give A Gift That Keeps On Giving
Giving back creates a cycle of generosity. When you purchase philanthropic, socially conscious brands like Chocoloza and Bean There Coffee Company, you’re helping to promote local suppliers and uplift your community.
These gifts are the perfect choice for recipients who care about giving back. They’ll feel good receiving their present and even better when they learn that they’re making a positive difference in the world.
