ABOUT THE BAR
A creamy 70% dark chocolate bar which features delicious bursting notes of wild dark forest fruits and sweet honey, before rounding off with some dark, coffee-ey tones.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Founders of Chocolate Tree, Alastair and Friederike Gower, started their chocolate adventure in 2005 by touring music festivals and selling their chocolates from a hand built solar powered geodesic dome tent. However, working with organic couvertures wasn’t enough for them. Alastair and Friederike – being the adventurous types – decided to start making their own chocolate from bean to bar in 2012. This was a time when the craft chocolate movement was just getting started in the UK.
ABOUT THE BEANS
The beans in this bar were sourced from the ancestral lands of the Arhuaco tribe, which was long famed for its cocoa production but has been damaged in the past centuries by colonialism and conflict. The Arhuaco have now returned to their lands, where they are practising old tribal growing traditions designed to preserve the harmony of nature.
