Why we love this product

A gorgeous gift set for the coffee lover in your life

This stunning gift set consists of either a delicious dark or milk chocolate bar from Coco Chocolatier and an exquisite bone china espresso cup from the talented Emma Alington. 

From their workshop and boutiques in Edinburgh, Coco Chocolatier's small team of visionaries source the finest chocolate from South America and blend them with bold, unusual and exceptional ingredients to make the most delicious chocolate bars such as the Isle of Skye Sea Salt Dark Chocolate and the Rhubarb and Ginger Milk Chocolate bar available to choose from in this gift set. Both bars are amazingly packaged with art from British illustrators. 

Emma Alington builds up hand-thrown bone china on the potter's wheel and then hand moulds and crafts it into these beautiful espresso cups in her Berkshire studio. She hand paints a 22k gold rim on each of them and we have collaborated with Emma to have the AUTHOR logo placed on the interior base of the cup. We especially love the delightful polka dot version that will bring the recipient joy every time they take a sip from it.

What our customers say...

I ordered a gorgeous pinch bowl for a girlfriends 40th and it arrived as promised; beautiful wrapped with a lovely personalised note and information on the piece and who made it. Everything was of such high quality and elegantly put together….my friend absolutely loved it and really appreciated the effort I had gone to. I didn't tell her it wasn’t quite all done by me!
