For chocolate-lovers, few blocks compare to the creamy and cacao-rich deliciousness of OCHO Chocolate.
OCHO is a craft bean-to-bar maker based in Dunedin. Created using cacao beans that are sourced direct from the Pacific, each lovingly-crafted bar is single origin and fully traceable to the farm where the beans were grown.
OCHO make their chocolate in small batches, using a simple, hands-on process and technique. Beans are sorted, roasted, winnowed and refined, before the chocolate is tempered and moulded into bars before each are hand-wrapped and distributed.
The aim is simple – to make quality chocolate with care and attention to detail, while showcasing the different flavour profiles of the beans and their country of origin. In a bid to keep your chocolate cravings at bay and provide you with a well-rounded taste test, OCHO's Sampler Box includes three of their most popular specialty bars, Salted Caramel, Beekeeper and Horopito & Kawakawa, a 70 per cent ethically-sourced cacao bar from the Solomon Islands and a 66 per cent ethically-sourced bar from Papua New Guinea.
To ensure your chocolate stash is fully stocked come Labour Weekend, we're giving away three OCHO Chocolate Sampler Boxes to three lucky Dish readers. Each box includes five mini OCHO chocolate bars to share and savour.
