“Our initial test was 100% Cacao which was wonderful but we wanted to add a tiny bit of sugar to take the edge off while reserving the flavours of 100%. You will be able to taste the full complex flavours of Chuncho beans in this bar. Chuncho cocoa beans are one of the most interesting flavours we’ve ever worked with. They come from small cocoa pods growing in the southern sierra (highlands) and the beans are small. Chocolate made from Chuncho beans have beautiful notes of fragrant flowers, and cherries. “
Yoon Kim first tasted craft chocolate 18 months ago, and was so blown away she had to start making her own. Having undertaken a fashion design degree and worked as a chef, she brings creativity and a dedication to good flavour to her chocolates. She has set up Smooth Chocolator as a small batch bean-to-bar chocolate company based in Geelong, using ethically sourced and transparently traded beans.
Despite winning international awards, her chocolate is better known overseas than in Australia, so we are delighted to be helping Australians discover this local treasure!!! See more
