Schwarzenbach Kolonialwaren

Schwarzenbach has been the specialist store for coffee, tea, and chocolate since 1864.

When you enter the beautiful Schwarzenbach colonial grocery store in the heart of Zurich’s Niederdorf quarter, you are immediately enveloped by the aroma of freshly ground coffee. Lining the walls of this history-steeped establishment are containers full of coffee beans from all over the world. However, spicy-smelling tea leaves, dried fruit and nuts can also be purchased here.

Directly next door, chocolate fans will find something to make their hearts beat faster: in the chocolate specialty store, there are more than 300 artisan chocolate creations to choose from. Whether flavored with Canadian maple syrup and fleur de sel, a 100% chocolate full of character, or a specialty from a manufactory in the Philippines: no wish remains unfulfilled here. While browsing through the huge assortment, customers can enjoy a strong and spicy coffee, a nutty cappuccino, or one of the many different drinking chocolate variations at the espresso bar.

Since 1864, Schwarzenbach in Zurich has been the place-to-go for gourmets and all those who like to treat themselves to something special every now and then.
