  • In the country known for its 🍫, it was only fitting to go and discover a new up and coming chocolatier in Switzerland. @laflor_zurichocolatier works closely with several organic farms in Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela to create their delicious chocolate line. 😍😍
They are truly a bean to bar business that pays homage to their culture. La Flor has incorporated Zurich's past silk trade industry into their name, as Zurich was well known for the production of a black silk fabric called Flor. 
Workshops and tasty sensory tasting experiences are offered at their location😋 #chocolate #swissechocolate #cocao #cocaobean #travelblogger #travelpics #instatravel #waunderlust #foodie #foodblogger #sweets #zurich #visitzurich #inlovewithswitzerland #nomnom #fairtrade #foodporn #chocolatenibs #instafood #sweetlife
