Derosier ChocolatesAward winning chocolatier
Having a love of all things chocolate, Leona decided to retrain as a chocolatier and undertook training at the Academy of Chocolate run by Callebaut Chocolate in Banbury, interspersed with long hours practising in her kitchen at home and the arduous task of numerous tasting sessions. Leona has been honing her skills ever since and is now an award winning chocolatier, gaining multiple Academy of Chocolate and Great Taste Awards, both for her filled chocolates and eyecatching packaging for her bars. She has taken on two more chocolatiers and they work in a chocolate kitchen in their Earlsfield shop.
Andrew meanwhile became a skilled barista and total coffee nerd, well versed in the complexities of brew ratios and latte art. He is the welcoming face of DeRosier Chocolate & Coffee- so much so that regular customers often refer to our first shop as “Andrew’s” , (Leona wanted to call their shop DeRosier as it was her French Canadian father’s name and seemed to fit the bill as a name for a chocolate company!).
