The Art of Chocolate

Chocolate is a velvety canvas for flavour and colour to combine to create a visual and sensual experience for you. At Rococoa we strive to bring you luxury by using high quality chocolate from Peru and Paraguay that is fairtrade and organic, combined with flavours that contrast and compliment. Rococoa plays on the word Rococo, an 18th century art movement that is exceptionally ornamental, elegant and sometimes theatrical. Our bonbons are over the top.

How it begins…

Before I make any bonbon, I imagine the flavour that I am trying to create and how it would look as a colour, shape and design.  It is very important to me that the visual presentation of the bonbon is as appealing as the flavour itself. We are attracted to beautiful things and I am trying to seduce you into trying the bonbons based on the way they look and then falling in love with the flavour. They taste as beautiful as they look.

Finest Ingredients, Freshest Flavours

At Rococoa, we strive to bring you the finest ingredients with the flavours to match. We are currently making the switch to fair trade ingredients which means that our chocolate is from farmers in Peru and Paraguay and all other ingredients that can be fair trade certified are used. This ensures that the farmers and their families are being paid fairly and you, the consumer can feel like you have made the ethical choice by supporting these small-scale farmers.

Chocolate Gallery

In my dreams I gorge on chocolates, I roll in chocolates, and their texture is not brittle but soft as flesh, like a thousand mouths on my body, devouring me in fluttering small bites. To die beneath their tender gluttony seems the culmination of every temptation I have ever known.
