Güras Cacao’s logo is inspired by the Rhododendron flower, which Samrat first saw on a trek in the Himalayas in Nepal. He caught a glimpse of the beautiful flower amongst some of the most gruelling and freezing terrains of the mountains, over 1,400 meters above sea level, and felt immediately inspired by its resilience and delicate beauty.
This journey and experience is the inspiration behind Güras Cacao, which was born out of desire to create beauty and delicious chocolate with unique and natural ingredients. Each hand-made chocolate’s signature design and expressive burst of colour and flavour inspires your senses.
Our products are made with the highest quality seasonal ingredients. We create sustainable and environmentally mindful chocolate that is made with plant-based ingredients, dairy-free and vegan.
Güras Cacao’s goal is to create a unique and bold plant-based chocolate and provide you with an unforgettable and peaceful experience that inspires you to believe, “You are enough.”
Our mission is simple. We want to share love and worthiness through our chocolates and take care of the planet while we do. It’s all about giving and sharing joy, positivity and love.
We also aim to spread the message about ‘I am enough’ campaign we ran across Australia to raise awareness about one of the most profound messages there is to be embedded upon our subconsciousness.
Welcome to the world of Artisan Vegan Chocolate, Güras Cacao. Where nature and health meet to delight and pleasure the senses.
Güras Cacao is truly a celebration of flavours, textures and design through vegan chocolate. Created by Melburnian Chef and Yogi, Samrat Karki, the special combination of flavour and colour are a product of Samrat’s desire to share joy, love and hope amongst this community.
From a little toddler to mature age, chocolate sparks a light in the heart and ignites pure joy. It was a highly prized possession, once devoured by Kings and Aristocrats and used as a currency, it truly is a valuable fruit of the earth, which almost instantly brings everyone together.
Inspired by Mother Earth and the fragile nature we live in, Güras Cacao offers premium artisan chocolate that is exceptional with every bite.
