Krakakoa Chocolate’s Sweetness

A brand built from the farm up that continues to support local farmers, Krakakoa was founded in Sumatra by Sabrina Mustopo and Simon Wright, a South African. They work with local farmers to lift the process from quality to control pests – which, not surprisingly, love the cocoa beans as much as humans do.

Krakakao pulled off a major coup when they won a total of six medals at the 2017 Academy of Chocolate awards in London, pitted against some of the top chocolate makers in the world. Founded in 2013, the company rebranded in 2016 and now has a beautiful shop on Seminyak’s main road. The chocolate ranges from a 100% dark chocolate to bars flavoured with sea salt and pepper, creamy coffee and other delicious varieties including an inspired classic range.
