Ocho has officially settled in to its newest production factory in Dunedin, renovating an old timber mill to suit growing demands for the artisan chocolate.
If there is one food that is easy to craft a good instagram page around it is chocolate, and Ocho has done just that.
100% cacao chocolate bars all set and ready to go. These little beauties are made from cocoa beans from the Solomon Islands. We are big on single origin beans to make our chocolate and each bar is named after where its beans came from ???Browse online, or come in for a tasting at the @ochocafe ?
The page takes a more personal approach than say Whittaker’s or Lindtt. Choosing to show its manufactures and the important people involved in every part of the process.
Yet the photography is a good mixture of organic photos, mouth-watering chocolate shots and product insights.
The page has only been active since February, with only 58 posts. But it is clear that as the brand grows its presence through Dunedin, and further into New Zealand, it will gain traction among chocolate lovers.
Is there a difference between ‘fine chocolate’, ‘craft chocolate’, and ‘bean-to-bar’ chocolate? Luke from @thechocolatebar.nz explains each of the terms over on his blog. While you are there, browse the different kinds of chocolate he has been collecting – you won’t go back to the confectionary isle in the supermarket after making an order at thechocolatebar.nz. Enjoy!
