ABOUT THE BAR
This deep, bold 100% dark bar is full to the brim with intense flavours. With only one ingredient and zero sugar, this bar is for those who truly love the pure taste of cocoa beans.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Based in Belgium, Julia ‘Mike’ Mikerova and Björn ‘Becky’ Becker are the owners of Brussels’ first organic Bean-to-Bar chocolate workshop, and pride themselves on real, honest chocolate. Refreshingly, sustainability is not just a word to the pair; in addition to paying a fair price and avoiding plantations which use child labour, Mike & Becky also only use organic beetroot sugar, which is incorporated into their bars at their 100% green powered production facility.
ABOUT THE BEANS
The beans for this bar are a mix of cocoa from Maya Mountain Cacao in Belize, and the La Gina region of the Dominican Republic. Maya Mountain works with over 350 cocoa-growing families in southern Belize to process their beans centrally, which allows them to export high-quality cocoa beans to premium-paying craft chocolate makers. Öko Caribe, a prominent cocoa supplier in the Dominican Republic, is one of the most popular in the world – the two owners, Adriano de Jesus Rodriguez and Gualberto Acebey Torrejon, maintain close relationships with their farmers, often giving out loans for family emergencies and community needs.
