I absolutely Love Coco Chocolate! This delightfully decadent chocolatier with heart, specialises in organic and just downright delectable chocolate and confectioneries. Based in Sydney and Edinburgh, lucky Sydneysiders have two beautifully decorated Coco stores in Kirribilli and Mosman to choose from where on top of their other seasonal delights lovely staff serve up a selection of infused hot chocolates and organic teas and coffees.
Winners of both the Speciality Store and Local Business of the Year! Coco Chocolate
produces real chocolate using the finest organic spices, peppers and fruits creating a range of stunning chocolates that you just can’t say no to and why would you, when Coco Chocolate is an advocate of organic farming, ethical trading and non GM ingredients and is a proud member of SOPA (The Scottish Organic Producers Association). Being a member of SOPA – Coco adheres to strict guidelines, specialising in fine organic chocolate and only sells ‘real chocolate’ with high cocoa content and all of the expensive & delicious cocoa butter. Unlike mass produced counterparts which generally have the cocoa and cocoa butter squeezed out in favour of cheaper sugar, vegetable fat & powdered milk, Coco chocolate is so naturally good it is almost guilt free…
Owner Rebecca Kerswell, mastered the art of chocolatiering in Eurpoe and set up her first kitchen and store in Edinburgh. Coming back to Australia she has continued the tradition and is the creative director for the kitchen and Sydney Chocolate School located at harbours edge in Mosman. The school runs classes twice a month where you can learn the art of the chocolatier including traditional French techniques of hand tempering on marble – and if that wasn't good enough you get to keep all your tasty treats. If you aren't able to make it to one of the kitchen or delightful stores Coco offers an online service which delivers Australia wide.

A time old practice, drinking out of a copper vessel has Ayurvedic health benefits that not many of your average water bottles can provide.
