  • Description

    This is a powerful 52% dark milk chocolate bar made from Peruvian Criollo beans. Strong tastes of cocoa are lifted with a subtle hint of red fruit which gives way to a delightfully nutty aftertaste. This is one you’re sure to remember.

    The flavour profile of this chocolate bar transports you to the lush canopies of the Amazonian rainforest in north-east Peru, where Awajún indigenous populations carefully cultivate the organic Criollo cacao from which this bar was crafted. Here, we really are talking about cacao with a conscience; this chocolate contributes to the conservation of the Amazon, with the fair prices paid to the Awajún for the cacao meaning that they are able to earn a decent livelihood without resorting to deforestation by cutting wood for agriculture and livestock farming. This directly promotes development of sustainable cultivation of cocoa.

    It was quite simply a love of great chocolate that propelled Dutch founders Rodney and Enver to begin to create bean-to-bar chocolate in Amsterdam in 2011.Together they search the world for fine cocoa, dealing directly with cocoa farmers to ensure they get a fair deal – and you get the best possible quality! Indeed, Rodney and Enver are as passionate about ethics and sustainability as they are about the chocolate itself. They use only organic ingredients, and work directly to improve the environment, helping with a mountain gorilla conservation project in Congo and transporting the beans for their Tres Hombres bar from the Dominican Republic on the beautiful sailing cargo ship of the same name.

    The Tres Hombres connection to sustainable chocolate production is well known to small batch bean-to-bar chocolate lovers, as it’s the same ship the Grenada Chocolate Company use to transport their bars from the Caribbean to Europe, held in a solar-cooled cargo hold to keep it in perfect condition.

    We think Chocolate Makers’ passion for both quality and environmental responsibility shines through in their chocolate, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.
