Today we had a visit from a local coffee company who were presenting their capsule machines for home/office use. The slim machine looked sleek in black and metal trimmings. It held a litre of water, a simple 4 button operation and a lever to plug in the capsule. Very cute. Little did I expect was that they had a chocolate capsule!
The guy went on to explain that the concept and capsules were from Germany by a company who always have a chocolate brand – Kruger! I eagerly awaited to try the hot chocolate.
We went through three coffees (which I’m not complaining about) – the single Colombian and espresso blend were surprisingly good. None of us were in the mood for the teas so we skipped that and went for the chocolate.
The glass used was an espresso glass and the lady demonstrating ran the machine to give a longer pour as it usually is for a larger cup.
The crema, if you can call it that for hot chocolate was beautifully silky and fluffy, like whipped egg whites and the chocolate liquid filled the glass creating a few inches of warm inviting goodness.
I went straight in for a sip… It was thick and rich, and full of chocolatey flavour! So many capsule/pod based chocolates are either very watery or powdery. This was neither. The others had a sip to taste and I finished it off.
Definitely a satisfying cup! They kindly left the machine with us to trial and boxes of samples to try the different flavours of coffees, teas and of course the chocolate. Later that afternoon I made myself another long chocopresso. Yes. That word is made up.
