The Chocolate Project
The Chocolate Project is a school, retail store, and resource centre, featuring one of the world’s largest collections of sustainable, ethical, bean-to-bar chocolate. Owner David Mincey is an international chocolate judge, professional chef, and former restauranteur who works as a noted educator and speaker on sustainable food systems with a focus on the cacao industry.
Shatterbox Coffee Company
While other coffee companies focus on single origin coffees, Shatterbox Coffee Company seeks to demonstrate the way that different coffees can accompany each other, like voices in a choir or ingredients in a cocktail. Shatterbox is focused on creating superb blends that reflect the flavour traditions of northern Italy: bold but smooth, fruity and chocolatey, never burnt, never sour.
