Auro Chocolate Café partnered with Bahrain partners Ahmed Masood and Mariam Masood to “tailor the Auro Chocolate Cafe experience to suit the Middle Eastern market while maintaining the essence of the brand,” Auro said in a statement.

To maintain the quality of their single-origin chocolate treats, Auro’s Bahrain branch sustainably sources cacao beans directly from partner farmers.
