ABOUT THE BAR
The beans which make this creamy 50% milk bar are grown alongside majestic Ceiba trees, the sacred world tree of classic Mayan cosmology, which tower above the biodiverse jungle. The flavour profile of this bar includes notes of passionfruit, bananas and mocha.
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 200 hectares surrounding Lake Lachua, Guatemala, are home to the Q’eqchi’ Maya, who rely on the traditional cultivation of cocoa, honey, cardamom, and corn for their livelihoods. They have partnered with Cacao Verapaz, the Guatemalan division of Uncommon Cacao, to centrally ferment and export their high-quality, fine-flavour beans to the international market.
