Cocoba launched a test pop up kiosk in Brent Cross Shopping Centre in October 2012, and a little over a year later, opened the first café in Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent. Then, in September 2016, Cocoba opened their production unit in Northfleet, Kent, where they make over 150 delicious chocolate products, which are available to buy in store and online.
