There’s nothing we love more than curling up with a warm cup of hot chocolate, especially when it is absolutely baltic outside.

The first Coffee Shop Chain in Ireland to sell Ruby Hot Chocolate, it is made from the Ruby cocoa bean with a unique, berry flavour. It also, as its name suggests, is ruby in colour and has the natural tone of the Ruby bean. Insomnia has added no berries or berry flavour or colour when preparing the Ruby Hot Chocolate.
