“I wanted to share Monsieur Truffe with you as they were the first Melbourne based bean to bar chocolate maker I discovered. They have a very extensive range and I’ve enjoyed with what they make and also the regular collaborations with The Borough’s, which is next door. This vegan milk chocolate is creamy and perfect for winter as it’s full of aromatic Australian natives spices, reminiscent of creamy chai latte.” Jessica Tivendale
Starting as a one man chocolate stall in Prahan market in 2006, Monsieur Truffe has now grown to be a bean-to-bar chocolate empire in a large factory and retail space in Brunswick (they share it with the cafe East Elevation). They don’t just make chocolate
bars, but also drinking chocolate and gianduja (a cocoa & hazelnut mix).
They love sharing their artisinal approach with the community, and pride themselves on their collaboration with local artists and businesses. For example, they often incorporate local, custom artwork in their packaging. See more
