MELBOURNE | If you’re from Melbourne and love chocolate, you probably already know about Mörk Chocolate. The premium drinking chocolate brand was started by in 2012 by Swedish chocolatier Josefin Zernell & her barista partner Kiril Shaginov. The aim was to create drinking chocolate using the same approach taken by specialty coffee-makers; with respect for the traceability, quality and unique origin of ingredients all the way from bean to cup. And boy did they succeed.
Today, you can find Mörk drinking chocolate not just in Melbourne, but across Australia, the USA, the UK, and Japan. Their drinking chocolates are some of my favourite on the market, in particular their unique Native Blend, which incorporates native Australian ingredients.
In quintessentially Melbourne style, the new hole in the wall café is housed down a laneway in what was a disused elevator shaft. You can find the full range of drinking hot chocolates, along with coffee and their popular Campfire Hot Chocolate. There’s also a selection of tasty chocolate cakes and pastries, and the drinking chocolate in containers to make at home.
With several businesses in the city closing during this pandemic, it’s heartening to see something new sprout up. Do check out the new café if it’s in radius.
