One of Japan’s pioneering chocolatiers, Koji Tshuchiya, is the man behind the Japanese chocolate maker Theobroma Cacao. Theobroma Cacao is the second chocolate maker from Japan to enter our Library. With Japan being a country seldom associated with chocolate, surprisingly, it is also a country that has over 130 chocolate makers.
This 70% dark chocolate is crafted from cacao of the Arauca region in Colombia. Arauca is located along the border with Venezuela in northeastern Colombia.
The beautiful butterfly illustration on the packaging was drawn by painter Kimiko Higami.
