FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
All our couverture chocolates are handcrafted in Malaysia, using premium natural ingredients. We are proud to be an Malaysian company and source our cacao beans primarily from Malaysia, as well as other farms within Asia.
Whenever possible, we strive our best to use Malaysian ingredients in our products.
Our chocolates are made of all natural ingredients, and are not alkalised to retain the natural flavors and antioxidants from the cacao beans. Thus, you get to enjoy the natural acidity due to the fermentation process of the cacao beans, which helps to develop the flavors in our chocolates.
This means the milk has curdled, and was most likely heated too much during the preparation of the drink. Due to the natural acidity and high cacao butter content of Cocova chocolates, they tend to react quickly to milk proteins and curdling happens if the heat is too high. It is best to use low heat to prepare your hot Cocova, and to whisk it continuously to melt the buttons.
Our chocolate buttons and chocolate coated nuts have a shelf life of 1 year, and all of our packaged products include a best before date on the packaging. To ensure you get the full Cocova flavour experience, we recommend enjoying them before that date.
Our cold-steeped chocolate drinks have a shelf life of 7 days in the refrigerator. We recommend consuming them within 3-5 days for best flavour and taste.
Our chocolates are best stored at a temperature of 18-20°C, in a cool dry place.
In an air-conditioned location, storage within the pantry area in a cool dark cupboard is sufficient.
Otherwise, you may store them in the refrigerator, however the flavours of the chocolates may be compromised.
