Gifting the Goodness of the Archipelago

This season of anticipation for the warmth of togetherness that comes with Idul Fitri is one that celebrates the previous month of fasting, a physical and spiritual act that calls for introspection, empathy, and service. The inevitable reunions with family and friends also come with them an exchange of stories, gifts, and food. If you’re short on ideas on what to gift family at upcoming reunions, why not say it with chocolate? Krakakoa chocolates are gifts with true meaning. The tenets that make up the core of fasting month are also the same ones that Krakakoa was founded for: we […]

Rates of climate change presently plaguing the planet have hit unprecedented numbers.

First celebrated in 1970 following a catastrophic oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara the year prior, generations since have dedicated April 22 to reflect on — and make alterations to — lifestyle choices that have a negative impact on the planet.

Krakakoa & Lewis and Carroll Tea and Chocolate pairing

Chocolate makes for excellent bedfellows with several drinks: it’s not uncommon to attend pairing sessions where different types of chocolate are paired with select wines or coffees to elevate or augment the particular notes in a couverture chocolate bar. But on January 26, 2018, we took it to another level when we collaborated with artisanal tea crafters, Lewis & Carroll, for an afternoon of chocolate and tea. Established in 2015 and known for their premium blends of exquisite teas, Lewis & Carroll has inspired legions of new devotees to the art of tea drinking. Their meticulous curation of tea varieties […]

On September 10, things at the Trans Resort Bali in Seminyak became just a bit more delicious.

Guests then sampled bars from the Arenga Classic and Flavours of the Archipelago ranges, exploring the plethora […]

Welcome to the New Krakakoa

As of October 1, 2016, Kakoa evolved into something a little bigger and bolder: with a new surge of commitment to bringing you the best cacao from the Indonesian archipelago, we have rebranded ourselves as Krakakoa. The rollout of the new name, packaging, and products took place at Central Jakarta’s Por Que No restaurant, where we celebrated with our friends who worked in everything from media to VCs and restaurants to coworking spaces. It was wonderful to be packed in a small room with people who truly appreciate good chocolate — if you missed out, don’t worry! We plan on holding more meet-ups in […]
