The Launceston chocolate boutique was founded in 2008 by Rick and Theresa Streefland who carried on in the tradition of the Swiss Chocolatier before them. The Cocobean range was at first handmade in the shop’s upstairs kitchen on George Street. Because of demand for the product, however, Cocobean quickly outgrew the upstairs facility and now all the delicious delicacies are produced in a custom-built kitchen in Kings Meadows. Theresa uses only the finest ingredients for her gourmet chocolates and the business philosophy is `small batch’ married with old-world techniques. She sources couverture from the best producers globally and will only use companies with strong credentials for supporting the local community and environment.
