A coffee collaboration and new flavours from conscious chocolate company, Coco Pzazz
Giant chocolate buttons with a coffee crunch
Welsh chocolate makers, Coco Pzazz have collaborated with a fellow business creating a delicious combination to delight coffee lovers everywhere.
Their silky-smooth milk chocolate is given an added dimension with the extra crunch of Guatemala coffee, roasted in Wales’ beautiful Snowdonia landscape.
Coco Pzazz’s Mochaccino Chocolate Buttons are still one of their best sellers to date and not only that, the giant coffee flavoured buttons won a 1-star Great Taste award in 2018.
Here at The Artisan Food Trail, we found out how good they tasted when we were lucky enough to put them through our own approval process.
Thanks to their friends at Poblado Coffi, who are based in Nantlle, overlooking the stunning Snowdonia valleys, Coco Pzazz is able attain ethically sourced coffee which is beautifully balanced with malic acidity and a rich syrupy body.
Poblado Coffi work closely with suppliers all over the world who maintain the same ethical views as Coco Pzazz. The Guatemala coffee used in the Mochaccino Buttons comes from a farm (Finca La Bolsa) in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. The farm sits between two mountains allowing them to get the right balance and taste which comes through perfectly in the chocolate buttons.
La Bolsa is Rainforest Alliance certified and follows Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) guidelines, meaning they conform to the three production methods of sustainability: social, economic, and environmental and have measures in place to ensure these are consistent.

Small changes, big impact
Helping the environment has become more important than ever and Coco Pzazz has made it a central part of how they operate. In the past few years they’ve taken great steps to achieving this.
In 2019 they launched their Tread Lightly Programme and since then, with a dedicated workforce and by putting the environment at the heart of everything they do, Coco Pzazz have been able to bring about even more.
All packaging is plastic free, using compostable biofilm instead and card boxes made from FSC board. All UK trade deliveries are carbon neutral, energy used in their units comes from 100% renewable sources and they are committed to a zero to landfill policy.
Their choice to use only sustainably grown chocolate was tremendously pertinent as well as working with and supporting chocolate growing communities in Ghana and Ecuador with micro loans and other direct support.
