From the very beginning we have only been driven by one fundamental principle and that is to produce the best quality Chocolates, Macarons and French pastries.
The essence to what we are at CACAO is built on expertise, creativity, passion and only using the finest ingredients. Our motto is: ‘Source the best. Make the best’.
Our story began in 2003 in St Kilda, Melbourne. Since then, we have established ourselves as one of the leading premium boutique chocolatiers in Australia. Our colourful and expertly crafted chocolates have very quickly become the benchmark in fine chocolates and have been our signature product that continues to excite and inspire our customers.
Making chocolates and pastry is a form of art. We take pride in our creative process and we want the finished product to be a special experience. We have the utmost respect for traditional techniques and methods but we love pushing the boundaries and adding our own creativity to the mix.
We are extremely selective with what goes into our products and only partner with likeminded suppliers and producers. Our team only sources the finest local and imported ingredients, from Belgian chocolate to Australian dairy, organic salt and locally grown nuts.
Our luxurious Chocolates are hand-crafted and moulded from the finest Belgian couverture chocolate and premium grade cocoa beans to create a chocolate that is rich, velvety smooth that is never bitter or dry.
With this undivided devotion to Chocolate, the artistic presentation and attention to detail can be recognised with all of our work. Every piece of chocolate is masterfully constructed by hand to create a unique piece of art with its own personality.
At CACAO, we believe in 3 fundamental principles in creating world class chocolates and pastries. The first is to use the finest Belgian Chocolate, then we source the very best local and imported ingredients from around the world and lastly, we place these ingredients in the hands of a talented and dedicated team who work tirelessly to make some melt-in-your-mouth magic.
Working in the CACAO Chocolates and Patisserie kitchens are a team of award winning pastry chefs, including chefs Tim Clark and Laurent Meric. Our premium Couverture chocolates are available for your pleasure in both dark and milk chocolates and have been combined with classic ingredients such as salted caramel flakes, mint and almonds to give you the most indulgent chocolate experience.
