The Stones – Legian, Bali invited five selected guests to participate in the fun-filled workshop at Krakakoa’s newly-opened pop-up store in Seminyak.
On Tuesday, 10 July 2018,The Stones – Legian, Bali collaborated with Krakakoa for a Farmer-to-Bar Chocolate Tasting & Making Workshop.
During workshop, guests were able to see how chocolate is made from “farmer-to-bar”, taste a delicious array of chocolate made from 100% Indonesia cacao beans, and create their own version of their favorite chocolate which then they were able to bring home and enjoy.
Guests were not only introduced to new knowledge during the workshop, they were also treated to Krakakoa’s signature frozen hot chocolate drink. This drink is quite unique since it is made of hot chocolate drink that is frozen and then blended into a drink, when traditionally, ice chocolate is a mix of chocolate powder and milk. Some of the fun was shared live on the hotel’s instagram account.
Krakakoa is an award-winning “farmer-to-bar” chocolate maker founded in 2014 in Lampung, Sumatra by former McKinsey & Company consultants, Sabrina Mustopo (Indonesia) and Simon Wright (South Africa).
Krakakoa’s mission involves creating and a more sustainable agriculture system, first starting with cocoa. The company implements extensive training program for its producers and has been developed and operated by some of the world’s leading experts and organizations.
The name “Krakakoa” is a play on the historic volcano, Krakatoa, which is situated in Lampung province and is a famous name around the world. Thus “Krakakoa” matches our aspiration to become an iconic, global Indonesian brand while also hinting to the company’s roots in Lampung.
The store is open to the public until the end of September, where visitors can view chocolate being made on site, sample different chocolates, and purchase regular and limited edition items. Cacao-based beverages, such as frozen hot chocolate and cacao tea, are also sold on the premise.
All guests of The Stones – Legian, Bali are welcomed to visit the store at Jl Raya Seminyak No. 57 (opposite Warung Ocha), from 10am to 10pm daily. Email email@example.com for more information or any additional questions.
