COCO is a chocolatier based in Edinburgh, Scotland known for their artisan chocolate bars beautifully wrapped in original designs by independent artists. Perfect combo of cocoa and art!
They source their product at origin, purchasing coverture - high quality chocolate buttons - from Colombia, and using it to create chocolate products in their Edinburgh kitchen. Once the cacao has passed meticulous quality checks, it is taken to their partner's facility in Bogotá, where the chocolate beans are made into couverture. In addition to sourcing the product at origin, COCO contribute to teaching local farmers how best to cultivate their land and get more from their yield - which includes showing them grafting techniques and accurate methods of fermentation.
August's chosen bar is something a bit different 'Rhubarb & Ginger' - an old-school flavour paring that delivers fruity sweetness with a warming spice finish. 40% single origin milk chocolate.

The wrapper artwork is by French design duo Atelier Bingo.
