This unique tea mixed with the Lococoa enigmatic and alluring signature Natural Blonde creates a beautiful delicate blend of matcha with creamy caramel cues.
The matcha we use is grown in Uji, in Kyoto prefecture, Japan and known for its key differentiating characteristics — vivid pine green colour, refreshing 'oika' (覆い香) aromas and an exquisite savoury 'umami' (うま味) flavour profile.
Amarachi founded Lucocoa in 2015 after realising that there was no breadth or depth of offering in a market dominated by poor quality chocolate.
Discovering that cacao, just like wine and coffee, delivers intricate flavours when correctly roasted, but that the market instead chose to sell over roasted and emulsified blends of bulk generic cacao, she decided to do something about it by making chocolate from bean to bar removing all nasties and not using refined sugar - opting for unrefined coconut sugar and lucuma a fruit from Peru instead.
We are thrilled to be a stockist for Amarachi – we love the look and taste of her bars
