Hot Chocolate at Cocobean Chocolate, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia

After several pretty bad hot chocolates along the road between Hobart and Launceston, I was beginning to wonder whether Australia’s talent for producing beautiful hot chocolates did not extend South to this state.

We were greeted by a very friendly young woman and when we asked her what hot chocolates they offered her face lit up and she got all excited. “Oh we have so many options, sit down and I’ll bring a menu”.

For those of you who can’t, firstly, it is in a fantastic location with stunning views of the city and the hills surrounding it. You can even arrive by boat to get a great view of the [...]
