Rich coffee aromas wafted through the air and some of the world's top chocolate was made available at this year's Chocolate and Coffee Show.

Crowds of people - both young and old - turned out to the two-day event, held at The Cloud in downtown Auckland.

The show offered treats from drinking chocolate, hand-made truffles, cupcakes and sauces, to chocolate-dipped fruit, gateaux and chocolate bars.

Visitors were also able to try the latest espresso machines, bean grinders and plungers, while also getting tips on how to make their own coffee.

Some of the country's finest chocolate producers and coffee roasters showed off their skills.
