  1. Lynette A.

    I love this company. The owner is incredible and has accomplished so much. Farmers make more money if they make their own chocolate and Jenny, the owner, has made this possible.
    I like the bar. Nice tempering and texture. To me, it could be improved if it had a bit less astringency.

  2. Nick B.

    This is a superb example of bean to bar chocolate. Wonderfully creamy, melt-in-the-mouth texture, and a bottomless depth of rich flavour, finishing off with a moreish flourish. Highly recommended.
