Joke Hindryckx and Timo Haatainen found Kaakaopuu General Partnership in 2005. The first Kaakaopuu-chocolate store was opened in Kamppi in the centre of Helsinki on June 2nd, 2005. At first the industry involved selling and importing Belgian chocolate. Leonidas has clearly been the main product of Kaakaopuu right from the beginning.
Kaakaopuu moved to bigger properties in the centre of Kamppi in May, 2006. Café business started. Coupling chocolate and coffee has been a successful decision and Kaakaopuu has become known as a good quality chocolate café. In February, 2007, Outi Haatainen, who has worked in the company from the beginning, invested in Kaakaopuu as a silent partner. Soon after this, on April 3rd, 2007 the company form changed and Kaakaopuu became a limited liability company. Joke Hindryckx is still the main owner of the company. Kaakaopuu's activity remains ascending.
Kaakaopuu’s chocolate café, sale and import of chocolate
Kaakaopuu was found for importing and selling of Leonidas-chocolates. Nowadays, in addition to coffee, tea and cakes, our café offers many chocolate pleasures. We have specialized in hot chocolates, which are made in a Belgian style with molten Belgian chocolate, of course. The hot chocolates are made with Callebaut-chocolate (70% dark chocolate, 53% dark chocolate and white chocolate) and milk. In our cafés we trust in quality and good taste.
Our filter- and espresso coffees are both roasted by swedish Johan&Nyström. Our own special coffees, out of reach anywhere else, are Café Fondant and Manon Café, are based on their namesakes of Leonidas chocolates.
