When you think of cocoa, only chocolate comes to mind?
We at kōkōjoo want to show you that cocoa can be much more diverse and present the superfood to you at its best. Of course, we trade fairly and act in harmony with humankind and nature.
the full joy of cocoa
1- Until cocoa becomes chocolate, the raw bean must undergo several weeks of processing.
2- In conventional cocoa processing, up to 80% of the cocoa fruit are unused. That's too much for us!
3- To act against this wasteful handling, we currently intervene at two points of the processing to use what is consider "waste"
4- The pulp is carefully separated from the beans by a cold pressing process. It serves as base for other products
5- The cocoa bean shells are obtained by breaking them apart from the beans. These serve as base for our Pelure de Cacao
Pelure de Cacao
1- A refreshing drink based on cocoa bean shell infusion that impresses with a complety new taste
2- The infusion is carbonated and contains the revitalizing effect of cocoa
3- Pure or as a cocktail and above all cooled, a completely new cocoa flavor
4- 100% guaranteed refreshment + low in calories and sugar
Sustainable through utilization of the WHOLE COCOA FRUIT by also valorizing so called "WASTE" from cocoa processing
Sustainable through DIRECT TRADE (direct cooperation with our partner plantations) and part LOCAL PRODUCTION
Sustainable through HEALTHY LIFESTYLE: creation of innovative & healthy products by preserving and emphasizing the positive nutrients of the cocoa fruit
“A completely new drink! Delicious and perfect as a refreshment between meals. Everyone who loves cocoa will love this drink”
“kokojoo's innovative concept has absolutely thrilled me. Through direct trade and production in harmony with humans and nature, they contribute to making the world a better place.”
Pulpa de Cacao: Coming soon
a full-bodied experience made from 100% juice of the cocoa pod. Rich in antioxidants, vitamin B and magnesium. The tropical and exciting taste recalls sweet lychees with a light fruit acidity. Enjoy pure or in cocktails. (Due to the novel food regulation in the EU, the launch of Pulpa de Cacao will take some more time)
