The chocolate bird

Sai Nair and Prachi Ojha, both 33, created the chocolate ‘factory’ in Suriyagaon

Nainital’s quieter cousin, Sattal, is a piece of paradise that still preserves every romantic notion of the Himalayan foothills, from scarlet minivets to pink kachnar flowers. What you wouldn’t quite expect from the idyllic village of Suriyagaon is A-grade artisanal chocolate. But it’s these mountains that inspired a couple from Mumbai, create beautiful chocolate in the first place. Sai Nair and Prachi Ojha, both 33, are the team behind Cochoa.
