Chocolate maker Koko Monk has officially opened their second location in Kitsilano on West Broadway.
The new location is at 2883 West Broadway in the space formerly occupied by Flowerz and right next door to the new Purebread. The original Koko Monk at 1849 West 1st Avenue has been open since 2013.
The company’s name ‘Koko Monk’ highlights a philosophy of living and working with one’s environment and employing natural ingredients rather than forcing synthesized solutions that go against their natural functions.
Koko Monk founder Paul Dincer creates one-of-a-kind, complex and sophisticated flavour fusions using raw chocolate. When crafting each flavour, Dincer draws inspiration from his comprehensive background and education in fine art, literature and philosophy.
Some of Koko Monk’s unique creations include: Blue Moon (blue cheese), Brunette Bangle (curry and coconut), LA Mer (watermelon sea salt dark chocolate) and Jade Box (Japanese matcha tea), in addition to many more unusual and delicious combinations.
Koko Monk also crafts chocolate bars (including vegan bars), made from raw origin beans, with no additives other than natural sweeteners such as monk fruit, dates, coconut sugar and maple sugar.
Another crowd favourite is Koko Monk’s decadent hot chocolates (cacao brews) which are available in 14 flavours and available as brew-at-home hot chocolate cubes.
Dincer used these popular hot chocolate cubes to help fund the second location through a successful crowdfunding campaign that raised over $20,000.
