Kōkako x Shirl & Moss Chocolate Panna Cotta

The more you learn about coffee and cacao, the more you discover fascinating links between these two seemingly unrelated plants. They both produce beans that are transformed into two of the world’s favourite treats; they both grow in tropical climates all around the world; and they both offer a similar spectrum of potential flavours, ranging from bright and fruity to deep and roasty. They can even taste like each other!

With all of this common ground, it makes perfect sense that Kōkako Organic Coffee and Shirl & Moss Chocolate have come together to create a chocolate bar. This new bar combines ethically sourced cacao from Kokoa Kamili in Tanzania with Kōkako’s Mahana Blend, which uses certified organic and Fairtrade coffee beans from Ethiopia, Timor Leste, Honduras and D.R. Congo.
