Discover True Cacao Flavor
Our chocolate is handcrafted in New England to highlight the distinctive flavors of the world’s finest cacao beans. We use only fine flavor beans ethically sourced from the small farmers and producers we’ve met on our travels throughout Mexico, Central America and South America. Here at our farm we carefully roast, stone grind, and conche small batches of these beans to bring out their hidden flavors. We even use them to press our own cocoa butter! The result is a smooth chocolate that stays true to the unique flavors found in each different type of cacao.
