ABOUT THE MAKER
Trevor Smith, Australian car repairman and entrepreneurial patissier, established Metiisto in Sweden in 2012. After winning numerous awards for his bean-to-bar chocolate, Trevor decided to close down Metiisto’s operations to focus on his family. A long vacation to Australia inspired Trevor to return to his home country, where he reopened Metiisto’s operations in Toowoomba, Queensland, in 2018.
The beans in this bar are sourced from the Gaura Estate on the island of West Sumba, Indonesia. This 815-hectare family farm has a strong history of cocoa production, and their beans were recognised with a Cocoa of Excellence Award in 2015. The farm currently employs around 60 full-time staff, who live on the plantation and have access to a free school for their children and their own land for growing food.
