Our dedication to quality lets us bring you the finest chocolate flavour profiles that you can use to compliment your sweet or savoury dishes.
THE FINEST CHOCOLATE
Like wine, and specialty coffee the flavour of chocolate is determined by the terroir and variety of the cacao beans.
We source the highest quality cacao beans directly from small scale farmers in Ecuador, the leading producer of fine flavour cacao in the world.
In our Direct Trade model we agree the price directly with farmers ensuring 100% transparency and traceability.
For us, developing a relationship with our farmers is extremely important, we are committed to buying directly from the farmer and building lasting relationships that can make a real difference in their lives and their environments.
We take every care and cut no corners to ensure that every step of the cacao’s journey from bean to chocolate preserves its quality and unique flavour profile.
In the process of crafting the finest chocolate, we strive to reveal the unique flavour profile of the land and variety from which it came.
You might ask, what is so special about this chocolate?
It's the variety we use.
The Arriba Nacional cacao variety is considered to be the oldest and rarest cacao variety in the world.
It has a very distinctive delicate, floral and fruity flavour profile…that makes this dark chocolate unlike any other dark chocolate you’ve tried before!
Ecuador is the leading producer of fine flavour cacao in the world, a variety called Arriba Nacional.
Only 6-8% of cacao produced in the world is fine flavour of which 65% is produced in Ecuador! but this Arriba Nacional variety is threatened by higher yield and lower quality varieties, this is why it’s important to us to work directly with local farmers to help preserve Ecuador’s cacao heritage while also crafting delicious chocolate that highlights the fine quality and unique flavour of this variety.
