The day journalists were introduced to coffee, the world changed. We basically look and sound like early man, muttering inaudible words, being the most obstinate creatures God has ever made. Until we have that first cup of java, until it starts surging through our veins, until we can open our eyes and smell that heavenly aroma, journalists are useless. I should know. I am one.
The other saving grace for many journalists, is having something sweet, like chocolate, in your drawer or bag, to give you that boost of energy needed to get through our busy busy days.
But, the wonders of these two astounding lifelines aren’t just limited to the likes of journalists! Could you imagine a world without coffee or chocolate? Didn’t think so!
Luckily for us Joburgers, some really clever people named Shone Media had the noggins to combine coffees and chocolates and make an expo out of it, aptly named the Coffee and Chocolate expo!
“Welcome to the all new eccentric, decadent and exclusive Coffee & Chocolate Expo. For a raw and rich extravaganza of taste and experience of the highest class, join us on our journey while we tease and tantalise all your senses to bring to you a one of a kind Coffee & Chocolate Expo,” it says on their website.
Further, the expo hosts a few workshops, including a chooclate workshop by Wiz Bake and The Global Chocolate Company as well as a wine workshop hosted by Ken Forrester Wines with top executive chefs, transforming dreaminess into reality to enhance your lifestyle, home and tantalise your coffee & chocolate addiction.
Also featuring at the event is sisters Leandri & Seline from Masterchef SA in a cook off extravaganza using only two Coffee & Chocolate. Experience new technologies in baking, moulding and cooking with chocolate and watch the sisters infuse coffee flavours into your favourite dishes.
The best is that you can also view and purchase the latest technology in coffee machines, accessories, crockery and products to make you and your family coffee & chocolatier experts! Sit back, relax and enjoy a fun filled day of entertainment, tasting & an aromatic sensation that sends shivers down your spine.
