WHAT IS RUBY CHOCOLATE?


Now, have you heard of Ruby Chocolate? Hailed as the biggest innovation in chocolate history in 80 years and after 13 years of research, the Ruby Chocolate was released by Callebaut. Made from special ruby cocoa beans from Ecuador, Brazil and the Ivory Coast, the chocolate has a naturally distinctive lipstick pink colour. Just like you can taste the difference between white, milk and dark chocolate, you can really taste the difference with Ruby chocolate - it has a fruity berry flavour.



Since I'd heard of its release, I had always wanted to try it. It isn't the easiest (nor the cheapest!) chocolate to get your hands on but there are some shops that stock it.

Ground coffee


HOW TO MAKE RUBY CHOCOLATE LATTE


Gently heat the milk in a saucepan, slowly add the ruby chocolate and stir. Prepare the coffee. Mix the two together and either serve hot or wait to cool and serve over ice.

I had never really considered the temperature of the water when preparing hot drinks. But because I wanted to get the best flavour of the ruby chocolate and coffee together, I considered varying the temperature of the water when adding to the ground coffee in the cafetiere.

In order to make the coffee and prevent burning the ground coffee, we used the RediKettle Variable Temperature Thermal Kettle by Drew&Cole.

Virtually every hot beverage holds the perfect temperature. In our case, we have used filter coffee which has the optimum temperature of 49C - 60C. The RediKettle boasts 5 temperature settings, designed to suit most hot beverages - 60C, 70C, 80C, 90C, 100C. These temperatures can be set by the Intelligent base. The intelligent base also indicates the cup count inside the kettle and has dual capacity boil protection. This prevents the kettle boiling when it is either under or overfilled. 

The RediKettle allows you to keep your boiled water hot for up to 4 hours. The idea is that the kettle can save you time, energy and money. This is done through the thermal insulated vacuum design.

The body of the kettle is cool-to-touch with the stay-cool exterior, so no more burning your hands! The kettle also has an anti-spill safety lid. The water pours well and thus further increasing safety when handling boiling water. The kettle isn't too heavy when full either. 

We love the chrome finish on our kettle and looks great in the kitchen with the other appliances. However, there are other colour choices such as red, white, charcoal and black to suit your kitchen theme.

The RediKettle is currently available at drewandcole.com for £79.99. Want to win this kettle? Click here for more details. ( Giveaway is open till 29th July 2019)
