About Islands Hot Chocolate

Islands use the finest flavour cocoa from two locations in the Caribbean, from their own farms in St Vincent and the Grenadines as well as from their partner farms in the Dominican Republic. Sounds standard? It’s not. Most cocoa comes from West Africa where it is bought by large multi-national companies via numerous traders to mass-produce industrial chocolate in massive factories. Traceability is opaque, environmental issues greenwashed and ethics sit a long way behind profit considerations, if at all. Islands sit in the exceedingly rare minority of the chocolate industry – not only do Islands know their product inside out and are able to trace it from start to finish, they also act as both cocoa farmers and chocolatiers, making a huge difference at source.

In addition, Islands work closely with both St Vincent and Dominican Republic governments to ensure that their cocoa farms comply with the highest ethical standards and are child labour-free. Deforestation is also an ever-present threat, and both Islands and its farmers make a valuable contribution to slowing and even reversing deforestation nationally. Publishing all their traceability reports of when and where their cacao comes from, enjoy Islands safe in the knowledge that the chocolate you're enjoying is also doing a lot of good to its communities.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable coffee subscription packages. It also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All coffees are roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly subscription delivery schedules.
