Bright Chocolate


Bright Chocolate is an Australian Craft Chocolate company in Bright, Victoria making small batches of chocolate from bean to bar. Similar to coffee or wine, cacao possesses an inherent terrior, or characteristics based on the variety of the cacao bean and the conditions of where it is grown. These characteristics are barely recognisable in mass produced chocolate, so it is very exciting to taste the single origin chocolate range at Bright Chocolate to discover what cacao can actually taste like. With a strong food and wine culture and an appreciation for all things produced locally, ethically and traditionally, Bright Chocolate is born.

Simeon has studied chocolate making at the Ecole Chocolat Academy in Canada and is now producing single origin chocolate from premium quality cacao beans at the brick stables factory in Bright, which he has also lovingly restored to its original condition, exposing impressive wooden rafters and beautiful brickwork. When the cacao beans arrive at the chocolate factory Simeon undergoes the process of hand sorting the beans. They are then lightly roasted to develop flavours, cracked and winnowed which removes the 'husk' from the inner 'nibs'. The nibs are then added with sugar into the Conche. Here they are refined for 16 hours removing the bitterness and acidity while retaining the terrior of the cacao. The chocolate is then tempered, moulded into bars and packed by hand.

The Single Origin bars are made with cacao beans from Madagascar, Ecuador, Trinidad and the Dominican Republic. These all offer a unique flavour profile from citrus to tropical to cherry to earthy and spicy'. Bright Chocolate also crafts 'Bright Fancies' available in beautiful wooden boxes. Regionally sourced fruit and nuts adorn the 'Mendiants', and chocolate lollipops are a favourite for the kids! Simeon and Shannon welcome you to experience.
