Selene's Chocolate Bar is located just outside of the Box Hill Station, it's a nice place to get your morning coffee or an after work delights.

I was invited by Zomato to attend Selene's Chocolate Bar x Di Bella Coffee event. The cafe is designed to look like chocolate box with walls mimicking like blocks of chocolate.

Selene's Mocha - Belgian Chocolate with Serafini blend. Serafini has a fruity and almond aroma with citrus and honey flavours. We were given a choice of milk or dark chocolate, my partner opted for the milk. It was sweet, milky, warm and had a nice feeling in your tummy. The dark chocolate was richer in taste and body.

Individual House made ST. truffles - hazelnut, matcha and champagne matched with Nero Macchiato. Steve him self travelled the world to fine the best quality chocolate and he learnt how to make this in French.

Madagascar Single Origin Dark Hot Chocolate. It has an explicit cocoa taste with notes of raspberries and blueberries. I love a little of sourness at the end of the rich chocolate.

Coffee Master Class with Moises Tawil from Di Bella Coffee. This is the first time I attended coffee masterclass, it was very interesting to know the coffee from the very start to the very end product. Moises clearly is in an expert in his field, his job is to find the best bean with various verities from all over the world. There are five important indicator; aroma, taste, body, after taste and acidity to determine whether the coffee is good.

On our way out, Steven the owner of the cafe gave us home made Liege Waffle, Coffee Bean Chocolate and Coffee bean to bring home. He is a very nice person and I like the warm liege waffle, perfect to be eaten on it's own or with chocolate.
It was a wonderful event, I get to meet a nice couple who also blogs and I never eaten that much chocolate in my life in the span of two hours but I love it. This kind of event is one of my favourite event to attend, nice people, nice food with a touch of knowledge in it.
