Magic happens in our COCO-LABO. The origin of the cacao beans and our own production method come together in our journey to discover enthralling new flavor combinations. Each bar is made from carefully selected cacao beans & cane sugar (*100% Bolivia is only from cacao beans) so we can celebrate the genuine spirit of cacao. Because of our small batch bean-to-bar process, we create each ideal combinations. The world of chocolate has no limits. Enjoy discovering your chocolate world!
Our COCO-LABO Story
COCO-LABO is the fruit of the connection between people and 20 pieces of cocoa
A customer came to us with 20 cocoa pieces that she had bought on a recent trip, and asked if we could make chocolate out of them. That was the beginning of the COCO-LABO line.
The chocolate made with those cocoa pieces was beyond our expectations. We had discovered fascinating aromas and flavours – including the joys of simple sweetness to complex and robust whiskey aromas – and we resolved to share these delicious discoveries with our customers and our community.
It was not easy getting these cocoa beans. Their production was limited and the original supplier couldn’t provide us with beans, but they understood our passion and looked for another supplier to cooperate with us. In 2015, we were eventually able to get enough beans for production and to start the “COCO-LABO” line, most of which is made from high-quality organic cocoa beans, and organic cane sugar or organic coconut sugar.
“COCO-LABO” started from a chance encounter, our passion, and communication within the chocolate community. We are now ready to take the reins. We are proud to create products that bring people together and bring joy to their lives. As our mission says, we aim to “connect people with chocolate”. We look forward to sharing our love of bean-to-bar chocolate with you.
