Cocoa Runners and Journey Latin America's giftset

In their mission to inspire more people to upgrade to craft chocolate, they host regular virtual tastings. By unwrapping the stories behind 9 craft bars, exploring chocolate’s fascinating history (including its Latin American origins), and delving into the science of taste and flavour, an evening with Cocoa Runners is unlike any other tasting.

To join in, purchase a Welcome to the Revolution Tasting Kit from their website and use the exclusive coupon JLATASTE15 for 15% off.

A growing band of cacao farmers and artisan makers have been pioneering a revolution in single estate, craft chocolate. Cocoa Runners run around the world, finding the best chocolate bars from these craft makers. These chocolates don't just taste better, but they are also better for the farmers, the planet and yourselves.
