We’ve finally figured out how Karl Hogarth keeps pumping out so many amazing chocolate bars – he must be snacking on this coffee chocolate combination. Made with Oko Caribe cacao from the Dominican Republic – this is a 68% dark chocolate combined with Pomeroy’s Italian style coffee blend. Karl says “When we first thought of making an Espresso bar we knew we had to visit our mates at Pomeroys to find the perfect match. Oko Caribe’s berry notes paired beautifully with a dark roasted coffee bean blend from Costa Rica, Papua New Guinea and Brazil.”
Karl and Marina Hogarth make their bars in a small factory in Nelson, New Zealand. They use minimal ingredients aiming to truly feature the amazing flavours found in high quality cacao beans sourced from small sustainable farms. The small batches are made using traditional methods and they wrap everything by hand.
Hogarth Craft Chocolates are truly some of worlds prettiest. This is another bar that could easily be wall art. The mould tells the story of Karl’s sailing past as well as the journey that their cacao takes to get to New Zealand.
