In the chills of winter, there’s nothing like curling up with a cup of hot chocolate – and in times like that, no instant mix of Swiss Miss will do. Luckily for RESA residents, there are tons of establishments located just minutes away that can make a cup of gourmet hot chocolate with every kind of addition from caramel to peanut butter.
If you deserve a cup of something hot and sweet after a hectic holiday season, then forget the New Year’s diet for an afternoon and head to one of these Washington, D.C. spots for a delicious cup of hot chocolate.
Dolcezza Gelato and Coffee, located at 1704 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, D.C. which is worth every minute of its 14 minute journey from your RESA apartment, is a cozy shop serving unique gelato handcrafted from local ingredients, plus coffee, hot chocolate and espresso.
Dolcezza serves daily-made gelato and expertly crafted hot chocolate in eight shops and several downtown farmers’ markets. Most ingredients are grown locally by their farmer friends, who hand-pick their produce at peak ripeness before bringing it to the market the next day.
Arcay Chocolates, located at 1280 4th St NE, Washington, D.C. which is a 15 minute walk from your RESA apartment so you can walk off any guilt, is a family-owned chocolate business that started making chocolates in Venezuela in their home kitchen in 2006.
Master chocolatier Anabella Arcay quickly grew the business and gained international notoriety after receiving 42 medals at the International Chocolate Awards. In 2017, she uprooted the company to the United States with the dream of sharing her mouthwatering creations with the rest of the world.
