Introducing Cocoba Chocolate from England

Introducing Cocoba Chocolate, imported from England. The founder, Darren Litton, wanted to recreate the hot chocolate drinks he enjoyed as a child in Australia. They started as a popup, graduated to the cafe, and for the last five years, they have been selling their luxury products in stores and online in England. They make various chocolate products now, including very British flavors of chocolate bars, like Sticky Toffee Pudding and Eaton Mess, but their roots are with the hot chocolate bombs and spoons. The chocolate products are made in their kitchen in Kent, England, using chocolate from Belgium. 

We are expecting our first shipment of Coocba Chocolate in Early October. If you are interested, please call or email us. We will have limited supplies for the holidays, and we expect them to sell out quickly.
