NEW Ratio Cocoa Roasters 60% Drinking Chocolate

NEW Ratio Cocoa Roasters 60% Drinking Chocolate

A specialty drinking chocolate offering from Melbourne-based Ratio Cocoa Roasters

Ratio Cocoa Roasters use traditional chocolate making techniques and source the world’s best single origin cacao beans to make this 60% drinking chocolate. Only a very small percentage of chocolate companies worldwide still use these traditional methods, adding no preservatives or additives that could mask the true flavour of the cacao beans.

Hand-made in their HACCP certified facility in Melbourne, the process in creating it entails an elaborate 7 steps over 7 days – you will understand why when you taste it! The cacao beans are sorted by hand, then roasted in an antique ball roaster before being cracked and winnowed to remove the husk of the bean. The edible part of the cacao bean is now in small pieces called cocoa nibs. These nibs are then placed in stone grinders for a minimum of 24 hours, which results in a smooth liquid chocolate. The chocolate is then granulated and blended with cocoa powder and sugar before it is hand packed into boxes that are made from 100% recycled box board and printed with soy based inks.

Ratio Cocoa Roasters vegan accredited 60% drinking chocolate is a mixture of just four natural ingredients – organic roasted cocoa nibs, organic panela sugar, cocoa powder and organic coconut blossom. It is;

  • Vegan certified
  • Gluten free
  • Dairy free
  • Nut free
  • Preservative free
  • Additive free
  • GMO free
  • Soy free

It has a shelf life of 18 months.

Head to one of our cafes to try it, or shop it for home.
