August In Store Mork Tastings

August In Store Mork Tastings

In a decade where the major player on the hot beverage menu is the babycinno, it’s a rare pleasure to stumble across a chocolate beverage that caters strictly to an adult palette.

Enter Mörk: Australia’s first true bean-to-cup hot chocolate experience.

Mörk is Swedish for ‘dark’, and it’s a hot chocolate blend made from pure cacao liquor and sweetened with coconut blossom sugar.   

This August we’ll be hosting the team behind this invention in our stores, and offering steaming hot tasting cups of this adults-only luxury to our visitors.

All welcome and no need to book - drop in any time for a quick tasting cup of hot chocolate.

Mörk’s hot chocolate blends start at 50% cocoa solids and go all the way up to 85% - which means the majority of hot chocolates on the market, which are between 30-40%, literally pale in comparison.

But the other major difference in a mouthful of Mörk can be attributed to one key ingredient: Javanese coconut blossom sugar.  Made from harvested coconut palm tree sap and traditionally bought in blocks so it can be shaved into curries and cake batters, Josefin says coconut blossom sugar is the natural, Indonesian version of Nutella.  “It is definitely something everyone grew up with as a kid,” says founder Josefin Zernell. “They have it for breakfast on toast.” With a flavour a little like burnt toffee, it adds a soft element to the otherwise intense flavour of Mörk hot chocolate.

Mörk is a heartfelt attempt to bring the taste of ‘grown-up’ hot chocolate, so quintessential to the creators’ Swedish homeland, to Australia.  The creators behind Mork are a coffee roaster and chocolatier respectively, and couldn’t be more qualified to do the job.

Origin, classifications and varieties are just as important in cocoa as they are in coffee, and chocolate ‘traceability’ is a key component to the Mörk brand.  “We’re extremely proud that our ingredients can be traced back to unique farmers operating as far as Venezuela and Madagascar, where organic and fair practices are honoured,” Mork’s Kiril Shaginov and Josefin Zernell explain on their website.  “That way we can ensure that our ingredients are traceable at every step of the journey before they reach us in North Melbourne.”
