From Belize with Love
Good chocolate is like good wine or good Whisky. Once you’ve tried it, you can’t possibly go back to the cheap stuff from the discounter – never, never ever! If you’ve ever chewed raw, pure chocolate sweetened, at the most, with a dash of raw cane sugar, you know exactly what we’re talking about. This combination of bitterness and slight sweetness that literally makes your mouth water while you’re inquisitively rolling the bite from one side to the other in order to a) let as many taste buds as possible in on this pleasure and b) to savour the flavour spectrum of the best of all treats in all its epic splendour. This chocolate makes you happy, some have even reported states close to intoxication. If that is true, the Belyzium in Berlin Mitte is something like the Hell’s Kitchen of chocoholics. Because this is where you get the good stuff, the pure, the clean, the lovingly, sustainably and organically grown, harvested, fermented, dried, roasted, ground and refined dope. Have you ever eaten real chocolate? Ever tried 100% cocoa? They say it has magical powers and lets you grow wings. In plain English: The Belyzium is a small tree-to-bar cocoa manufacturer, meaning the team is responsible for the entire value chain from cultivation to processing of the organic cocoa beans, from the recipe and production of the fine chocolate creations to packaging and transport. And it’s not only about taste, but also about social, ecological and economic meaning. This aspiration, this value is in every single product, this aspiration, this value can be tasted in every single product – be it pure cocao nibs, fine truffles, ice cream or chocolate bars with or without cherries, Maya chili or sea salt. Those who want to take indulgence to the next level can take part in the weekly 2-hour workshop the Belyzium offers and dive in to concoct their very own creations. We’re giving away a spot for two in the next workshop to the particularly hedonistic among you. Send an email headlining ‚BROWN SUGAR‘ to email@example.com. Welcome to Level 2!
