Kad KoKoa is a premium bean-to-bar chocolate, founded by 2 lawyers, Paniti and Nuttaya in Thailand. They source beans directly from Thai farmers around Thailand. The team is attentive in all process of selecting, fermenting and drying beans to ensure we can represent the best flavours and aroma of Thai cacao when making into chocolate or as cacao beans. Kak Kokoa signifies a commitment to the environment and to the beautiful ecosystems of Thailand. They believe in Thai bean-to-bar chocolate and hope to bring the awareness of Thai cacao and chocolate to the global arena.
Instead of the usual foil wrapper, Kad Kokoa uses paper to wrap its chocolate. Regrettably, the smell has migrated to the chocolate, which is well known to be a super absorbent of odours and I can't get over the dominant taste of the paper wrapper in the chocolate.
