The name says it all – superb chocolate taken seriously. So seriously they produce their own chocolate from ground beans, rather than buying in couverture (high quality processed chocolate) from a larger concern. The standard range is excellent but it’s worth popping by the boutiques to see the seasonal treats and designs for occasions such as Halloween. Summer’s range includes chocolate pots topped with delicate flowers, and giant buttons flavoured with dried fruits. We love the bars for people on special diets too: they include chocolates made from buffalo and almond milks, as well as sugar-free dark and milk.
There are also branches in Chelsea and Borough Market, a forthcoming store in Kensington and a concession inside Selfridges.
