Artisan, Hand-Made & Imported Chocolate, Cape Town…
‘The food of the gods’ is a very impressive title.
Yet, when you consider the sheer influence that Theobroma Cacao (or simply cocoa) has on the world at large, it is certainly no understatement.
Cocoa is infused in our childhoods, our infatuations, moments of comfort and all occasions that call for festivity.
Cocoa has distilled itself as such a commonplace, readily available source part of our everyday lives that we rarely take a moment to ponder the awesome history, the remarkable versatility and the pure power behind a simple block of chocolate.
Rococoa is a commemoration of one of the world’s most decadent commodities. Allow us to serve you chocolate as you’ve never experienced it before, offer you a variety of unique cocoa inspired delicacies to take home, teach you things about chocolate you never knew and offer you a gathering space unlike any other.
Follow the ambrosia of Rococoa, in the heart of the mother city and have a lingering Cocoa encounter.
Let's not forget the pure power behind a simple block of chocolate...
