Five of the Best Gourmet Hot Chocolates in Tokyo

By on February 1, 2018

If it hadn’t been for Van Houten’s invention of cocoa press which became the global template for all fine chocolates, this velvety drink wouldn’t have existed today.

High quality cocoa powder usually comes from European countries. The Europeans’ early access to Dutch cocoa press enabled them to hone their craft and produce haute chocolat before anyone else in other countries did.  European chocolate powder contains at least 22 % percent cocoa butter and when mixed with cream, makes a decadently thick drink, the kind epicureans love.

Scientists are saying  that the global supply of cocoa is running low and  could become extinct by 2050 due to the effects of climate change. But don’t be disappointed just yet. Global thinkers are looking for solutions.
