Miann Chocolate Factory
In October 2019 we under took a new and exciting project in the latest Morningside percent designed by Nat Cheshire. We started small, making 20-30kg of chocolate a week but that quickly escalated to currently making 450kg per week which we use in all our cakes, gelatos, macarons and of course our Craft Chocolate Bars and seasonal treats.
We currently have 10 Origins that we stick to and when we get the chance we get some small batches of cacao in from other growers to keep not only us but our loyal customers interested in new and interesting flavours from around the world.
We use cacao from as close as Fiji and Papua New Guinea, to Sierra Leone, Madagascar, Peru and beyond. Every origin has its own personality which works so well for when we create our desserts we can pick a cacao that suits the dessert, be it nutty, fruity, floral.
All in all its a pastry chefs dream.
and every little boys too.
Glass Houses X Chocolate
During the first Covid lockdown in New Zealand we had to think outside the box, to find a way to get people into their own bubbles, taking inspiration from a restaurant in the Netherlands we decided to install our Glass Houses which have now become a staple part of the Chocolate Factory experience
Whether you are booking for Afternoon Tea, a plated dessert experience or just you just manage to grab one whilst it was free for a quick hot chocolate they have become a very much loved part of our set up.
They hold a maximum of 6 people and its the only tables in any of the Miann stores that we actually take bookings for.
Click the link to head to our bookings page to reserve one for your friends, family and most importantly yourself.
Perfect to stay in your bubble and extend it slightly
