Chocoline Cafe is the flagship store of the brand of the same name. The man behind this fascinating cafe is a South Korean man named Young. Having been to many countries around the world, Young came to Vietnam to study the cocoa trees in the country. The more he studied, the more he realized the potential of cocoa and chocolate production in Vietnam. In fact, growing in an ideal climate, Vietnamese cocoa nuts are considered among the world-top notch ones. Altogether, he has spent 20 years in Vietnam pursuing this goal.

In order to produce chocolate en masse, Young and Nguyễn Văn Hoan, his Vietnamese partner, opened a chocolate factory named Ecomy together with the brand Chocoline in May 2020. The factory is located in District 12. Currently, Young’s Chocoline brand is distinctive for its fresh chocolate products with 5 different flavors: Dark, Milk, Coffee, Baileys, and Green Tea. Of course, the drinks at Chocoline Cafe also use high-quality fresh chocolate from this factory.
