Take Blenz Hot Chocolate Home

Monday, October 26th, 2009

By Greg Lui
Blenz Coffee
Director of Marketing

At Blenz, hot chocolate is not just another cocoa powder or canned syrup based beverage with heated milk. Each serving of Blenz Hot Chocolate is a reflection of years of tradition and innovation. By using only the finest Belgian chocolate chips direct from Belgium, we hand-craft each cup of Blenz Hot Chocolate as a serving of pure decadence— a sensory experience.

Belgian chocolate is unique thanks to its superb quality ingredients and its century old techniques. The main difference between Belgian chocolate and other forms of chocolate is that when the chocolate arrives at most factories, it is in solid form; on the contrary, Belgian chocolate is delivered in heated tanker trucks soon after it has been tempered. The compression of time maximizes the aroma and quality.

Blenz has decided to package the Mayan tradition of 2,000 years with the Belgian tradition of 200 years so that you can bring it home. You can now enjoy the same luxuriously smooth and extrarefined Blenz Hot Chocolate in the comfort of your own home. Blenz Hot Chocolate is available in Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate for purchase at all Blenz Coffee retail locations, as well as many fine food grocers across British Columbia and online at

How do you make your coffee?

premium Arabica Beans

Making the perfect cup of coffee is something different for everyone. It is an art and a science, that is not only affected by the coffee that is used, but also the equipment. The water, the water temperature, the time the water is in contact with the coffee, the grind, the type of filter, all play an important role in determining the flavor. Fine tuning these aspects is the art of making the ultimate cup of coffee.

Here are the three main principles :

1- The Water: It is important to use fresh water that you like. Since coffee is 98% water the taste of the water will come through in the coffee. The better the water you start with the better the flavor of the coffee.

2- The Coffee: Choose premium fresh whole beans suited to your taste. There are two principal species of coffee: Arabica and Robusta. Arabica beans are the choice beans with more flavor and less caffeine. Robusta beans have more caffeine and are more « robust » and are usually used in blends. At Blenz we only use premium Arabica Beans. The origin of the beans and the roast will determine the flavor. Roasts vary from light to very dark. Light roasts have a smooth, delicate aromatic taste, medium to medium dark roasts are slightly stronger, with a full-bodied balanced taste, and dark roasts are bold with smoky undertones.

3- The Grind: Use the proper grind finesse and grind just prior to brewing. The variation in the grind depends on the type of filter you use. We prefer paper filters because they allow you to use a finer grind, thus allowing a full extraction and more contact time with the water. Permanent filters require a slightly coarser grind therefore the extraction rate is reduced. A general rule of thumb for grinding is the longer the brew process the coarser the grind.
