Zurich, Switzerland • Recommendation • 3 months ago

Be bold and buy kilo-sized slabs of chocolate at Läderach, a family-owned chocolate shop founded in 1962. A few years later, Rudolf Läderach Jr. invented and patented the process of manufacturing thin-walled hollow balls for truffles in 1970. This made production significantly easier, allowing them to sell in bulk. The family continued to innovate, generation after generation. Their newest revolutionary product, the Läderach Mini Mousses, are refreshing kisses that literally melt in your mouth!

Max Chocolatier - Zürich

Zurich, Switzerland • Recommendation • 3 months ago

Max Chocolatier’s origin is just as sweet as its chocolates. Max, the owner’s son, always had chocolate smudged all over his face. The enjoyment he had in chocolate inspired his father to set up shop, which would then go on to produce and include outstanding, ethically sourced premium chocolates in their extravagant menu. Max faced difficulty as a child with Down Syndrome, but he embodied the happiness and contentment that Max Chocolatier eventually spread all over Switzerland and the world.

Chocolat Dieter Meier

Zurich, Switzerland • Recommendation • 3 months ago

The new wave of chocolate is here and it’s being brought about by Chocolat Dieter Meier. The chocolate shop reverse-engineers the process of making chocolate. Instead of roasting beans at high temperature, they use cold extraction to retain the aroma without adding any hint of bitterness. This makes their chocolate require less sugar for purer chocolate indulgence. That means healthy, guilt-free consumption that doesn’t sacrifice flavor. What a treat!

La Flor

Zurich, Switzerland • Recommendation • 3 months ago

La Flor is the newest chocolate shop in the city, ironically situated above a 100-year-old bakery. The shop makes small batches of chocolates, processing only first-class beans without any additives. La Flor rode the artisanal train and it works wonderfully! Drop by for a holistic chocolate experience. They are happy to pass on their knowledge about chocolate, as well as how you should eat chocolate for maximum chocolatey goodness.
