Kapuhala Food

Our 88% raw, cold-pressed Modica chocolate straight from Sicily is packed full of antioxidants unlike mainstream chocolate bars. Adding to our existing range are two new flavours: Chili and Cinnamon. Enjoy guilt-free chocolate at its best!  You can purchase our products at Uncle Russ Coffee shops in DB and Central, Our Studio in North Plaza as well online.

Pistachios, almonds and hazelnuts perfectly matched with orange blossom honey, Granelloso is our new scrumptious mixed nut brittle bar. Kapuhala brittle bars are made with organic ingredients and imported from Sicily. Our brittle bars take no space in your bag and are a great source of energy when you’re on the go.

The Inversion Workshop with Maddie Booth

Have you ever wanted to be able to do a handstand? Join our handstand workshop with Maddie Booth. You might wonder why bother, but there are plenty of benefits from this deceptively simple action. Inverting the body promotes overall blood circulation to the upper body. The increased blood flow to the brain energizes and calms the mind helping you deal with stress more effectively. These are just some of the many benefits from doing a handstand, but it can be daunting to try it on your own. Maddie will teach you the incremental steps to enter and exit a handstand correctly. This is a 90-minute workshop that’ll run for four consecutive weeks starting on Sunday, 24 March at 11:30 am.   Read more about it here:

Kapuhala Spartan SGX Training

The Spartan HK Race 2019 is on Saturday, 1 June, which is just around the corner. To help you get ready and achieve your goals we’re offering a specialized training program. Simon Passmore, our instructor, will set up a course with similar obstacles and tasks that you’ll face on race day, like rope climb, spear throw, bucket brigade, tire drag, Hercules hoist and and more. It’s a functional fitness program that’ll be conducted in different locations around DB to help you get the most out of our local terrain and simulating the race environment. This is the most rigorous training program on offer in Hong Kong. Watch out for further news on our Facebook Page.
