MANILA, Philippines – Philippines’ Auro Chocolate has gone international!
The artisanal bean-to-bar chocolatier has opened its very first international Auro Chocolate Café in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Auro’s first dine-in location in the Middle East opened its doors to the public last March 31. The new branch boasts a tropical oasis theme, highlighting bamboo accents and local wicker accessories.
Customers can order from Auro’s signature drinks and pastries menu, which includes the Auro Spanish Latte, Auro Signature Coffee Blend, White Chocolate Orange Blossom Madeleines, Vegan Peanut Butter Bars, Pistachio and Cranberries Granola, Vegan Choco Peanut Bars, Spanish Latte, Fudge Brownies, and more.
There are also a few Bahrain-exclusive items on the menu, like the Hot Cocoa S’mores, which is marshmallow fluff with melted chocolate ganache; and the Mont Blanc, with layers of roasted banana and vegan dulce de leche.
Customers can also purchase Auro’s award-winning chocolate bars in-store for takeout.
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.
The Auro Chocolate Café is located at Amwej Cineplex, Amwej Islands. It is open daily from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm (BH time).
