Store appearance image
Together with Indonesian producers, Dari K consistently manages cacao cultivation, harvesting, fermentation, and drying, and delivers chocolate using high-quality cacao beans to customers. This year marks the 11th year since our founding in 2011, and we have changed the brand color from the chic brown we have been used to to green, which is the image of a lush Indonesian farm. Following the three stores in Kyoto, this is the first store in Tokyo outside of a department store. The main store will have 11 seats and will be developed as a stylish space where you can enjoy the charm of cacao under the new brand color.
Commitment to cacao
At the new store, we propose ways to enjoy cacao in a fresh state. The centerpiece of the store is the “cacao grinder,” a machine developed by Dari K Co., Ltd. that instantly turns cacao beans into 100% cacao chocolate paste (cocoa mass).
The process, which normally takes several hours, has been shortened to just one minute, making it possible to taste the individuality of cacao on the spot.
At the store, we will offer drinks and sweets using fresh cacao mass, and deliver a new experience that will surprise customers with the taste and aroma of cacao itself.
