Isabel Brash brings her architectural training towards designing Cocobel Chocolate. From bean selection – all single-estate Trinitario, the world’s most flavourful – through conception & design of each unique flavour, these are chocolate treasures created by a finalist of the 2016 Chamber of Commerce Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year.
“fresh-baked Friday” – the second and fourth Fridays from April to November – is worth the trip for the free hot chocolate complementing the cookies, brownies and “blondies” it would be understatement to call “sinful”; Cocobel is about pleasure, not dieting, and they make no bones about making you happy.
Cocobel’s new chocolate bar flavours include 72% dark, coffee and cream (milk chocolate and coffee), máliaba (the Amerindian word for guava) and crème Creole (white chocolate with nibs) as well as the Felicity (milk chocolate with coconut, cashew and cardamom), named for the village Nobel Literature prizewinner poet Derek Walcott praised. Each bar is a work of art wrapped in another: the inaugural collection comes in a full-colour, cardboard envelope featuring Trinidadian multi-media artist Brianna MasterCardCarthy’s rendition of Cocobel herself. The beautiful envelope is designed to be re-used – but only for very special persons. Dark secrets of love, indeed!
