We’re excited to welcome Krak Chocolade.
This amazing chocolate is created by Mark Schimmel in Ermelo, The Netherlands, about 18km from our office! Although Krak Chocolade officially launched in 2013, Mark’s journey towards chocolate making developed over many years. Mark is a talented pastry chef who worked in three-Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Europe, before starting his own pastry and chocolaterie business. The more he worked with chocolate, the more he wanted to create it himself, from bean-to-bar. After initial experiments with micro batch chocolate making, Mark upgraded his equipment and started working with some of the finest cacao origins in the world. Be sure to check out Mark’s Colombia Sierra Nevada dark-milk bar, which won the Golden Bean (for best overall bar) at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in 2021. bROWSE THE KRAK RANGE
