Shoukâ, altitude roaster
Shoukâ is a coffee and cocoa factory located in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, in the heart of the Alps in Haute-Savoie. Located in a former restaurant and bar emblematic of Chamonix, Shoukâ is a unique concept store in France practicing a double roasting: chocolate "bean-to-bar" and coffee "bean-to-cup". In a friendly atmosphere, our aim is to control the entire production chain. We offer a wide range of roasted products with authentic taste and quality, respecting the nature of the raw materials that make them up and the people who grow them. Our mission is to show through sales or education that coffee and chocolate are great foods with antioxidant properties and that, consumed in moderate quantities, can boost your sports performance!
Speciality coffee “bean-to-cup"
Coffee has many health benefits. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and micronutrients, coffee contributes to the daily intake of dietary fibre, which promotes intestinal transit and kidney function. A real natural stimulant, the caffeine contained in coffee reduces the perception of effort and even facilitates breathing. The ideal consumption to benefit from its advantages: 3 cups of coffee per day or 400 to 450 mg of caffeine daily.
At Shoukâ, our speciality coffees are freshly roasted by us in our factory in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc according to the "bean-to-cup" principle. Bolivia, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ethiopia or Brazil, our speciality coffees are an invitation to travel to the heart of the land and traceable plantations that favour sustainable and social farming practices. We have carefully tasted and selected them according to their aromatic profile to offer you a wide range of flavours and a unique tasting experience. Shoukâ has about fifteen specialty coffees available in bulk or in bags, in beans or ground on demand, to guarantee optimal freshness.
Like coffee, cocoa is an important source of fibre, aids digestion and stimulates intestinal transit. Dark chocolate contributes to good blood circulation and helps prevent cardiovascular disease. Even more than green tea, chocolate is a great antioxidant, rich in minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, copper, zinc, iron... It helps combat tiredness, stress and anxiety and, to go further, contributes to well-being and happiness by stimulating endorphins!
At Shoukâ, the bars are made by hand in our factory in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc and according to the "bean-to-bar" principle. We select cocoa beans from small plantations, often organic, according to their botanical variety and their aromatic profile. Then, we carry out all the manufacturing stages at low temperature in order to preserve the nutritional and taste values of the beans: we roast, crush, grind, conch and temper each bar with the greatest care. Our chocolatiers prefer organic products and do not use additives, lecithins or preservatives. Shoukâ offers more than 25 bars made from 6 different origins of beans to satisfy all taste buds.
