Kad Kokoa - Dark Chocolate - Shiso Seed 58%
The north of Thailand is an agriculture treasure for the country. It is mountainous landscape and higher latitude allow for crops unique to the region of Thailand such as strawberries, cherry flowers, and a thriving Arabica coffee production.
The cacao varietals which thrive in this cooler tropical environment offer us a subset of flavour that is unique to the North of Thailand.

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 the entire 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 we hope to bring the awareness of Thai cacao and chocolate to the global arena.
It’s just sweet enough for those who do not want pure cocoa taste. Really good chocolate, with slight hint of seedy taste. The bar is a little small for the price.
Was quite excited to try the Shiso Seed bar as I love all things Shiso. Felt that the nutty flavour of the seeds did not warrant the price, even at discount. Chocolate was decent, but nothing to shout about compared to other bars.
