ABOUT THE MAKER

Husband-and-wife Armin and Katya live in the German-speaking region of South Tyrol, in northern Italy. Armin first got into chocolate while living in India for Katya’s work, after learning about the prominence of Indian lentil grinders in the American craft chocolate revolution. The next day he acquired a stone mill, some local cocoa beans, and started crafting chocolate as a hobby. Four years later, in 2018, he and Katya decided to found Karuna Chocolate, earning enormous success in their debut years.

THE BEANS

Known as the spice garden of Kerala, the Idukki region of southern India has long had the climate and ecology to grow cocoa. But it wasn’t until 2016, when GoGround started investing in post-harvest processing facilities and farmer education, that fine-flavour cocoa farming really took off. Now husband-and-wife Luca and Ellen, with the support of the Italian RIVA foundation, have built relationships with the smallholder farmers of Udumbannoor, paying them guaranteed weekly payments in exchange for freshly harvested cocoa beans.
