#37 – “TALKING DIRTY WITH SUN GOD”
Black olive dark hot chocolate with lime and chili.
Served with a piece of 74% Crunchy Parmesan Toffee Chocolate Bark.
Available: January 19 – 22
“To sum up, the warmth of Meditteranean sea and sky in the misty skin of young and growing olives on their sun-soaked branches is a priceless experience to offer to Vancouverites. You will learn how chocolate makes breathing slow, while your body soaked with love … You will feel as if someone sprinkled sun all over your lips and your heart. You will understand no one can tell who, which one of us is in love; the mist will cover us all. And the mist is love …”
#38 – “SIN AND SALVATION”
(Can be made with organic almond or coconut milk.)
Organic lavender, white hot chocolate with fig and chamomile.
Served with your choice of Koko Monk’s signature cookies.
Available: January 23 – 29
“Here it is, another sunny drink. Don’t you think we need it? The blue voice of Lavender will tell you the stories of past summers, naked before the sun. And the fig, like a single tear drop of a blonde angel will explain to us all why we are here. Whether to kiss someone or burn in bliss … snow white chamomiles most innocent and young and silent, lit by the moon to show us the way. Sip it slowly my dear friend. Sip it while you can still feel them all.”
#39 – “COSMIC ROSE”
Dedicated to sweet memory of Leonard Cohen.
Vegan coconut milk, dark hot chocolate with salted rose carmel and cardamom.
Served with 74% local and organic dehydrated parsnip, beetroot and dark chocolate bark.
Available: January 31 – February 5
“Oh Roses … daring of all! I will call you as notary of love. Love warms…attraction is a hot matter. As long as the interaction is between two beings, heat heals! Only when it is directed to self the danger starts! Self-love without any outer corresponding manifestation is the gate to the fire of Hell; to the loneliness of an ice-burnt heart. Here it is vegan, coconut milk hot chocolate for you as a short cut to heaven with salted rose caramel! “
#40 – “BLACK VELVET”

Blacker than velvet is the night.
Sweeter than heart is the chocolate!
