Made in the melting pot.
Like Australia itself, we bring together the world’s best with proudly local ideas and ingredients.
We start with the best Belgian couverture, made with 100% cocoa butter – with zero palm oil and other vegetable fats involved. This gives it a rich, smooth when melted, and a premium “snap” (that’s a chocolatier’s technical term for the satisfying oomph when you bite into a block.)
Our ‘standard’ milk chocolate is actually anything but, with a huge 34% of cocoa solids – the highest percentage among our chocolatier peers. Alongside it, our spectrum of couverture ranges from a 28% cocoa solids white chocolate, to a fruity, intense 100% dark chocolate – one for real cocoa aficionados.
To this premium starting point, we love to add home-grown ingredients like Tasmanian leatherwood honey, Australian nuts and native bushfoods. Our flavours are inspired by the world, with a uniquely Koko twist – think roasted coconut paired with whipstick wattle, and matcha offset with natural pink lake salt.
Which means a Koko Black chocolate is more than just delicious – it’s also a world tour in chocolate form.
Crafted by hand, eye and palate.
At Koko Black, chocolate has always been our craft as well as our calling.
Each one of our chocolates is handmade – even now, with hundreds of products in our portfolio. We temper, mould and enrobe each piece using traditional Belgian methods of chocolate-making, perfected over centuries and passed down through generations of chocolatiers.
While we could automate our operations further, we know there’s no machine that can replicate human artistry: the sculptor’s fingers, the painter’s eye, the connoisseur’s palate. So we continue to roll our truffles, pipe our caramel mousse, and shape our clusters one-by-painstaking-one. It’s a devotion that might seem difficult to understand – but only until you taste the results.
Infinite possibilities of cocoa
Making magic, not just chocolate.
At Koko Black, it’s our mission to conjure up magic you can eat:
transforming premium natural ingredients into something that
amounts to far more than the sum of its cocoa solids and sugar.
It’s a philosophy that’s produced over 260 Koko Black products since
2003, and more moments of chocolate transcendence than we
could count. Here’s a look at some of our favourites.
