Hot Chocolate
Ratio Hot Chocolate


Delve into a chocolate affair like no other. Featuring innovative, handcrafted equipment, this is an exclusive chocolate boutique, even Willy Wonka would be envious of! Situated in Melbourne's trendy northern suburb of Brunswick, owner and founder of Ratio Cocoa Roasters, Debb Makin, has quite the story to tell.

Leaving her zoology background behind, her love for chocolate and the chocolate making process, resulted in the production of this sleek and sophisticated workshop and cafe. Her chocolate enclosure offers a traditional "bean to bar" experience, involving a ten step process, from hand sorting the beans, to roasting, conching (churning), ageing, and tempering. In total, taking one month, for a bar of chocolate to be made at Ratio! Witness this intricate process first hand on a tour or watch through the glass walls, while sipping on a decadent hot chocolate, or espresso poured from their exclusive under-bench Modbar system.

Ratio source the world's finest single origin cocoa beans, and presently use four different varieties. The beans are derived from Panama*, Solomon Islands, Peru* and Trinidad and Tobago. Each unique in size, shape and most importantly flavour. Ratio produces both dark and milk chocolate in a range of contrasting strengths. Try the 70% dark chocolate Peruvian bar for an amazingly smooth delight, or the deliciously creamy 58% Solomon Island bar, for the more traditional milk chocolate lover. Additionally, Ratio also produce an exclusive array of bars, such as apple & cinnamon, almond salted caramel and macadamia & lemon myrtle. These ingredients are sprinkled onto the bars by hand at the end of the process, hence eliminating any contamination while the chocolate is created.

Ratio dark chocolate bars are 100% Vegan, containing purely cocoa beans and organic sugar from Brazil. The milk chocolate bars contain the added ingredients of cocoa butter and milk powder. Ratio chocolate does not contain preservatives, emulsifiers or additives, and are individually wrapped and packaged by hand, using 100% recycled paper. Gorgeous gift boxes are also available for special occasions.
