    Breathtaker does 'gourmet' hot chocolates.

    (Apparently - I'm allergic to chocolate)

    PS I edited the post to include coffee - as you say things change from season to season, and finding the best barista on the hill is very important.

    I wish Koko Black start up a business on the mountain! Can you imagine that! Drinking Rich Smooth Belgium Hot Chocolate while watching all the skiers/boarders go down into a valley and enjoying the blue sky day. *(dreams)*

    Re: Best hot chocolate & coffee

    due to the wet freezing conditions on Sunday had a couple of hot choccies....one at Kofflers and one at is it Bull Bar? Kofflers by a mile. While on the subject, where is the best place to have have lunch and get a seat???? Every place is always packed with no seats available....seems as though Buller just doesn't have enough places to cater for the crowds?

    Re: Best hot chocolate & coffee

    Always manage to get a seat at Kofflers, though as per your other thread, I haven't been to Buller on a weekend for well ummm ever!

    The following is my usual plan for eating/snacks
    Start skiing at 8:30
    Hot Choccy/Jam Donut stop around 11 at the hut down Wombat/LBS
    Ski through lunch, less crowds
    Lunch around 1:30, at Kofflers
    Drink stop around 3pm
    Last ski til around 4:30

    This works well on weekdays, even Uni Tuesdays when it's pretty busy, but weekends no idea

    Nick the barista is back at Abom, he pays a lot of attention to the coffee he makes.

    Otherwise I have my Gaggia and grinder up here....
