Guatemalan beans are famous for their sweet and floral aromas, which are brought out expertly in this creation from Scottish chocolate maker Bare Bones. The single-origin 65% dark bar plays on that floral sweetness with notes of honey and tropical fruit.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Bare Bones Chocolate was founded in Glasgow in 2018 by Lara and Cameron, two craft chocolate lovers who decided to try their hand making their own. The results speak for themselves! Multiple successes at the International Chocolate Awards and Great Taste Awards have followed, and their beautiful packaging, made from recycled paper coffee cups and repurposed food waste, highlights their commitment to great taste while protecting the planet and its people.
This bar’s beans are sourced from the XOCO Cooperative, based along the Rio Dulce (“The Sweet River”) in the eastern tip of Guatemala. XOCO has encouraged farmers since 2007 to give over up to a third of their land to new cocoa trees, provides technical support over the lifetime of the trees, and guarantees good prices for the beans once harvested.
