Company Spotlight: Mörk Chocolate



Mörk Chocolate is a small business. We have one foot in the world of fine chocolate and one in the world of specialty coffee, with over ten years of professional experience in both Australia and Europe. “Mörk” is Swedish for dark, and the name speaks both to our shared history and our devotion to dark, pure chocolate.


Why do we dedicate ourselves to chocolate?

We have always loved chocolate: one of us since the age of three, sneaking downstairs many a winter night to steal the foil-wrapped chocolate santas from off the Christmas tree, careful to hide the wrappers where no one would find them; the other ever since the very first meeting with that same girl, then an experienced chocolatier, while she was demonstrating the tempering of dark chocolate at a coffee roastery in Sweden.


We call ourselves the Cacao Artisans of Melbourne. With our dedication to chocolate follows a tremendous amount of respect for the product: we work with the purest form of chocolate—cacao liquor—and the finest cocoa powder, creating our Mörk chocolate blends in small batches to ensure consistency and freshness.

The sourdough hotel at the Urban Deli in Stockholm

The sourdough hotel: a cultural centre

Sourdough breadmaking has had a real renaissance in recent years, with specialist artisan bakeries rolling out across Europe and the US, and more and more people cultivating their own batches at home. In Sweden the craze has been particularly intense and Stockholm is now home to the, let's face it, somewhat gimmicky "sourdough hotel". Located in the Urban Deli in the painfully hip Sofo district, the "hotel" charges 300 Swedish Crowns (£27) a week (a week!) to keep sourdoughs thriving while their owners go on holiday.

According to Jesper Konstantinov, part-owner of the Urban Deli, sourdough baking is popular among what he calls the socially conscious. And, he adds, "it's huge among stay-at-home-dads. They have really been a driving force in the Swedish sourdough craze. They are the same dads who come to us for tips on how to make their own sausages because they don't want to give their kids the commercially produced stuff. They don't trust it."
