Discover True Cacao Flavor
We search throughout Latin America to find the very best single origin cacao beans and use those beans to handcraft our award-winning chocolate. Because our beans come from only one farm or region, and we never alkalize or use additives, our chocolate reflects the incredible true flavors of the beans from which it’s made. We also take the exceptional step of freshly pressing our own single origin cocoa butter from the same beans we use to make our bars. The result is intensely flavorful and exceptionally smooth, true single origin chocolate. For more about what makes our chocolate special please visit our “Fine Cacao” and “Our Process” pages.
