The Legend of Sephra
Or: The origins of the chocolate fountain
Although Sephra has only been selling chocolate fountains since 2003, according to legend they have been round since Montezuma's time! In his day, there was a gorgeous goddess, Sephra. Montezuma admired her so much that he built a temple for her. In the temple were huge fountains surrounded by precious cocoa beans.
One night Sephra appeared to Montezuma in a dream. When he woke up, he discovered the water fountain had turned into the very first chocolate fountain! And as they say, the rest is history!

How to choose what chocolate to buy
The better quality chocolate you use, the better the result will be. Use cheap grocery store chocolate - and it will taste like cheap grocery store chocolate. You need good quality containing a large amount of cocoa butter to produce a rich creamy flow. Flavored chocolate brings an interesting twist to the idea, but obviously any chocolate with bits in it (eg nuts) is not going to work.
This is high quality chocolate and made especially for their machines (though you can use it in any machine)

Another great reason to invest in a Chocolate Fountain
I am one of those people who thinks long and hard before buying a luxury item, even one as inexpensive as a home chocolate fountain. If you are like me and need some extra justification for spending the money, there is a way you can actually turn a profit from a chocolate fountain.
What am I talking about?
Renting your chocolate fountain out!
If you pay $100 for your appliance, rent it out for $20 and you have covered the cost after 5 rentals. Everything after that is profit.
This could make a great little business for college students to run. You may need to charge a little less, but I think this could be a great way for students to celebrate birthdays, end of exams and anything else in a special way.
