Hot Chocolate Coming Soon To Before Chocolate!

It's nearly the time you experienced Hot Chocolate made from real cacao. The way it's made to be.

Before chocolate there was cacao. It was pure and simple. It was healthier and less processed. It was a delight... a delight we left behind. 

At Before Chocolate we've stepped back in time to bring you the rich chocolate flavour you have grown to love but with all the goodness of cacao. 

Cacao. The food of goods and soon to be your favourite hot drink.

Known as the 'Food of the Gods', Mayan royalty often consumed cacao as a luxurious hot drink.  Cacao is at the very heart of Before Chocolate and we've long held the desire to create the world’s best hot chocolate made purely from cacao.

We have worked together with our Peruvian growers to select the very best cacao beans for making hot chocolate that are both rich and smooth and are delighted to say we have created a Hot Chocolate that in our humble opinion tastes truly amazing. 

What ingredients are lurking in the hot chocolate you find on supermarket shelves?

Often described as watery, grainy and too sweet most standard hot chocolates contain Dutch processed cocoa powder, (note this is not the same as cacao powder), sugar and an endless list of unnecessary ingredients including thickeners, preservatives, palm oil, and sweeteners etc.  

We wanted to create something far better and more natural but without compromising on the taste.  There is no cocoa powder in our hot chocolate. We simply take small batches of whole organic cacao beans & grind them into a paste and naturally sweeten them.

Just 3 ingredients in our low sugar Cacao Hot Chocolate!

The result is a rich and smooth chocolatey taste created by the highest quality natural ingredients.  Containing only 3 ingredients, our hot chocolate is higher in cacao and lower in sugar. 


  • Use cocoa powder (often chemically treated)
  • remove the rich cacao butter from our beans
  • use refined white sugar. 

Available in food service, coming to retail soon.
