One head chef and four workers create 24 different types of pralines. The chocolate bars vary in the concentration of cocoa and are available with 70%, 65% or 38% cocoa, with or without nuts. All delights are handmade and sold on a small scale only in Hotel Colbert.

Chocolatier Colbert buys high quality chocolate from Chocolaterie Robert and Cinagra. This raw chocolate is heated up at 50°C to make it ready for production.

The finished products are cooled down and thereafter stored in a 17°C chilled room before entering the shop. For special occasions, such as Christmas and Easter, shapes are used to create Santa Clauses and Easter Eggs.
