Hot chocolate redefined

The Marimba Hot Chocolate Melt range is delicious and luxurious, made using real flaked chocolate from top quality cocoa beans. The result is a richer, smoother and more indulgent experience, available in sophisticated white, comforting milk, punchy dark, delicious sugar free and ruby varieties.

Real chocolate, not cocoa powder

Marimba Hot Chocolate Melts are made from a whole 40g of flakes of real single-origin chocolate, just the same as our handmade chocolate bars. The result is a richer, smoother and more indulgent hot chocolate experience, available in sophisticated white, comforting milk and punchy dark varieties.
A whole bar in every cup!

Single-origin beans, selected for flavour

We have carefully selected the origins of our three signature Hot Chocolate Melt flakes. The growing climate, altitude and type of beans each contribute to the perfect flavours.

Venezuela Milk 43%

A mix of Criollo and Trinitario Beans

A richer milk chocolate with the distinctive accent of hazelnut, caramel and vanilla. Combines a strong cocoa flavour, the impression of roasted beans and a clear nutty taste. The result is an exceptional milk chocolate; creamy, rich and delicious. Criollo beans are native to Venezuela and are renowned for producing chocolate with richer more intense flavours.

Colombia White 36%

Trinitario Cocoa Beans

A divine white chocolate distinguished by its natural colour and creamy flavour notes. With marked dairy notes of milk and cream, what makes this chocolate stand out is its floral, caramel cocoa undertone. Made entirely from Fino de Aroma beans this is one of the most exceptional white chocolates around. Colombia is a colourful and diverse country and this chocolate is a wonderful expression of that diversity.

Ecuador Dark 71%

Nacional Cocoa Beans

The exceptional fine flavour and rich aroma of Ecuador’s native "Cacao Nacional" is the main characteristic of this dark chocolate. It is highly prized for its floral flavour. Our high cocoa content delivers a surprisingly gentle flavour distinguished by soft and subtle aromas. There is a floral hint, and a nuance of earthiness provides the finishing touch.

Hot Chocolate Melts are simple to prepare

At home - Marimba Hot Chocolate Melt flakes dissolve easily into hot milk. We recommend heating the milk in a pan and stirring the flakes until melted, however microwaved milk works just as well! And if you have your own coffee machine, why not use the milk frother to create a luxurious texture?

For cafes - it’s easy to make the perfect Hot Chocolate Melt: We provide display tubs and portion-control scoops free with your first order. Simply heat the milk and flakes together using your espresso steam wand, pour and serve. What could be simpler? And with 40g of flakes in every serving, there really is a whole bar in every cup!
