kkao Co. Launches @ the GoodnessMe Box Dessert Wholefood Night Markets

On Thursday 28th July 2016, kkao Co. opened the doors both online and with our first ever stall at the GoodnessMe Box Dessert Wholefood Night Markets at The Grounds of Alexandria, Sydney; and what an amazing night it was!

The night saw 30 of the most amazing health food brands plus Australia's leading health & wellness personalities including Jessica Sepel, Luke Hines, Jacqueline Alwill and Taline Gabriel come together for a night of discovering the latest and greatest wholefood sweet treats, decadent dessert recipe demonstrations, a health-inspired BBQ dinner and organic mulled wine under the fairly lights at the most spectacular venue, The Grounds.

We feel so honoured to be part of such a special evening and showcase our 100% natural Cacao Teas. Health and wellness is so important to us as a brand and we are proud to bring you a unique yet nourishing way to experience 'chocolate'. 

Our teas are made from 100% cacao bean husk - the outer shell of the cacao bean, an otherwise discarded waste product. When cacao beans are harvested from their pods, fermented and dried, they are then roasted and cracked to separate the nibs from the husks. The nibs go on to make chocolate, and the husks are left to create our beautiful cacao tea.

Cacao husks boast many of the same health benefits as the cacao beans themselves; making this chocolate tea rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. With no artificial flavours or additives, our sustainable teas are completely natural and GMO-free so you can be sure that you are nourishing your body with every sip of this chocolate bliss.
What's also unique about cacao tea is that it is caffeine free. Cacao contains Theobromine, which is a mild, naturally-occurring stimulant similar to caffeine which has a more sustained and gentle slow-release effect. This means you can avoid the harsh caffeine slump many experience after drinking coffee but still benefit from a little pick-me-up.

We are so overwhelmed at all of the positive feedback we have received so far, and would like to thank each and every one of you who came along and tried or purchased our tea. 

Our teas have been described as "tasting like hot chocolate, but healthy" and "it reminds me of milo", as well as the general surprise when people discover the teas are not artificially flavoured and completely sugar free.

At kkäo Co. our ambition is to 'ignite your bliss' - create joy, happiness and well being. We want you to be able to enjoy the experience of chocolate, and feel good about it; so we hope that we can bring you exactly that and can't wait to spread the bliss far and wide.

We are extremely excited to be on this journey and sharing the cacao love with you all as we think it's pretty special. See for yourself....


With bliss,

kkäo Co. xx
