Amelia’s Chocolate in Aberdeen Walk, Scarborough

It will be held at Amelia’s Chocolate in Aberdeen Walk, Scarborough, on 5 June, from 7-9pm.

Chocolate and coffee lovers will be invited to taste five single-origin chocolates which will be matched with five coffees from the Baytown Coffee Company in Whitby.

Just as each chocolate has a different taste profile and story, each coffee blend has its own distinctive taste and suggested brewing method.

Baytown started in 2013 out of the love of great coffee. The company says: 'Baytown stands for simplicity and its ethos is based around making great coffee that does great things. When we’re not roasting coffees, you can catch us organising beach cleans, doing charity projects with local schools and working with farmers at origin.'

Tickets cost £10 and can be bought online at Eventbrite.

Half the proceeds will go to the RNLI to help them continue to save lives at sea.
