MELBOURNE | Calling all chocoholics… Chocolate factory and cafe Ratio Cocoa Roasters have launched on Sydney Road in Brunswick. Owner Debbie Makin and her team pride themselves on using traditional chocolate making techniques to bring their tasty chocolate to life.

The minimalist interior of the chocolate shop has a Scandinavian vibe with an open floor plan and plenty of natural light creating a calm atmosphere for an afternoon coffee and well deserved chocolate treat. Various flavored chocolate bars line the walls of the shop making you salivate to try all their genius flavours. Guests can see the beginning stages of the chocolate making process through a glass wall, as the antique machinery is churning cocoa nibs into smooth chocolate right before your eyes whilst you’re seated comfortably at your table.

Ratio Cocoa Roaster’s delicious chocolate begins with raw cocoa beans, which are hand sorted and roasted to put into a vacuum-sucking machine that separates the cocoa nibs from their husks. The nibs are then transferred into stone grinders to extract a smooth chocolate liquid with added organic cane sugar from Brazil to deliver a decadent chocolate bar that ensures the raw taste of the cocoa bean is not hidden. If you want to get up close and personal and see how the chocolate is made the incredibly passionate and knowledgeable staff members offer tours to guests to see the bean to bar chocolate making process first hand.

The dark chocolate is suitable for vegans and their milk chocolate bars are created with added Australian whole milk powder and organic cocoa butter.

Ratio Cocoa Roasters imports a variety of cocoa beans from Trinidad & Tobago, Peru, Panama and the Solomon Islands. In fact before opening Ratio, Makin travelled the world spending time in Africa, Peru and Soloman Islands, getting hands on experience of the cocoa trade. The scent of raw cocoa at Ratio is pungent in the air and very welcoming, as guests further have the opportunity to separate their own cocoa nibs from the husk and taste the raw, bitter cocoa before it is turned into a sweet chocolate bar.

There are endless amounts of chocolate treats to indulge in, as they are hand crafted offering unique flavor combinations. Some of their creations include chilli and caramelized peanut butter truffles, creamy orange and cardamom truffles coated in crunchy pistachio nuts and a spin on the classic rocky road topped with delicate dehydrated rose petals.

The innovative flavour combinations are incredibly refreshing and delectable making Ratio Cocoa Roasters a must visit hot spot for all chocolate lovers in Melbourne.
