City workers and residents in search of decadent fine chocolates will soon be able to sample the multi award-winning wares of Leura chocolatier Jodie van der Velden when she opens a boutique store in Sydney CBD.

The Josophan’s – Fine Chocolates retail boutique will open on the ground floor of a beautiful art deco-style heritage-listed high rise building on the corner of King and York streets, diagonally opposite the Grace Hotel. The building backs onto the new Louis Vuitton store and Josophan’s will occupy the prime corner position.


Ms Van Der Velden said the new 32 sqm Josophan’s boutique would open by early August.


``We’re very excited about our Sydney CBD store,’’ she said. ``It’s a goal we’ve been working towards for a long time.


``To be able to bring a little of the beautiful Blue Mountains magic to the city is a very special thing.’’


Blue Mountains, Lithgow & Oberon Tourism chairman Randall Walker congratulated Ms van der Velden on the new store.


``It will be a fantastic opportunity for people working and living in the city to sample the exquisite products Jodie and her team create before heading up to the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region to see where and how the chocolates are made and exploring the magnificent World Heritage Area in general.


``Josophan’s is one example of the many unique attractions and businesses in the region, and Jodie opening a retail outlet in Sydney CBD is obviously a sign of the Josophan’s success and we wish her the very best.’’

Chocolate lovers can expect an array of handcrafted goodies using Fairtrade Certified Belgian couverture chocolate and fresh flavour infusions, luxurious hot chocolate powder, chocolate bars, figurines and confectionery when they visit the new boutique.


The delicate centres infuse cream with fresh herbs like basil and mint and premium ingredients including saffron, coffee beans and the aromatic Tahitian vanilla bean, to name a few.


Blue Gum and Yellow Box honey, hazelnuts from Orange and fine chocolate imported from France and Belgium blend together to make extraordinary chocolates.


In fact, Josophan’s – Fine Chocolates products are so fresh they are best consumed within seven days.


The boutique will be an extension of the Josophan’s – Fine Chocolates emporium at 132 Leura Mall, which also houses its chocolate production laboratory.


There, visitors can take part in the popular Josophan’s chocolate appreciation and chocolate-making workshops as well as browse an extensive range of chocolate treats.
