Description

ABOUT THE BAR

Fine milk chocolate with a twist; a higher proportion of freshly roasted cocoa makes these bars much darker than conventional milk chocolate without being bitter. A pleasurable experience for those with a sweet tooth looking for softer cocoa flavour.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Patrick and Peggy’s chocolate story began during the trip of a lifetime. Hopping on their bikes, the pair spent months cycling around Iran, Nepal, India and Mexico, before deciding to travel through the scarcely inhabited landscape of Belize. While travelling through the mountainous landscapes in the south of the country, the pair ran into the descendants of the Mayas, who were cultivating cocoa in the dense tropical rainforest according to centuries-old traditions. After returning to their home in eastern Germany, Patrick and Peggy found themselves dreaming of importing and distributing Mayan cocoa all across Europe, but soon learnt that most chocolates on the supermarket shelf are made from industrially produced cocoa mass and that there was no market for high-quality cocoa. The solution: to make chocolate themselves!

ABOUT THE BEANS

The beans for this bar are sourced from Maya Mountain Cacao, one of the earliest centralized fermentary social enterprises. Established in 2010 in the early stages of the Craft Chocolate boom, Maya Mountain works with over 350 cocoa-growing families in southern Belize to process their beans centrally, which allows them to export high-quality cocoa beans to premium-paying craft chocolate makers.
