Enjoy melted into milk with a little sugar
Simón Coll have been making artisanal chocolate in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, situated 40km from Barcelona, since 1840. That's 180 years of crafting chocolate. A new generation, the sixth, is now starting to plan a future of innovation that will continue Simón Coll’s long history in the world of chocolate. Love that the chocolate wrapper design was created in 1880 and is still in use today. It shows the primary materials for chocolate, like sugar and cocoa, being transported from the other side of the Atlantic.
We are stocking three of their cocoas. Each yummy in its own way and can be enjoyed melted into milk with a little sugar or for a more intense cocoa taste try making it water-based. Each bar has eight 25g squares, we tend to use two squares per cup.
60% Cocoa with Cinnamon
60% Cocoa with Vanilla
70% Cocoa with Chilli & Pepper
In their words "Choosing excellent raw material and using a variety of different plants from the best locations are the basic requirements of producing a higher-quality product. Once at the factory, the process starts with the whole cocoa beans being toasted: this helps us to keep an aromatic profile in the future chocolate that would otherwise be lost.
The selection of the cocoa beans and our own toasting process are the initial key factors that will later help to define the sensory profile of the excellent chocolate that we are known for "

Fabulously rich, dark and spicy. Wonderful to drink on these cold nights. Nice touch to have a little biscuit and a handwritten note in the parcel when delivered - thank you
This was the verdict of my 10 year old grandson - he probably would have liked a little sugar in it, as Tugboat suggested! Next time it will get the full “high five”!
I’m obsessed with this chocolate, the ritual of melting it in hot milk (oat milk for us!) as much as the intense taste... We got a few packs to see us through the cold weeks ahead. A treat that felt extra special arriving with a hand written note :)
I recently purchased some of the oh so yummy Simon Coll chocolatecwith cinnamon from the lovely folk at Tugboat. We have had this chocolate before so we're well versed in its delicious flavour. The swift service and delivery from Tugboat was a surprise given it was just before Christmas and of course with all the difficulties Covid can throw up. We were thrilled to get our order within two days of ordering andto see it accompanied with a friendly hand written note too. We highly reccomend our friendscat Tugboat and the yummy treat that is Simon Coll chocolate.We will definately be ordering from Tugboat in future!
Giving these as Christmas gifts to the whole family after they went down so well as a birthday gift. Tugboat delivered promptly and at a good price. I definitely recommend and I'll be buying some more soon enough!
