ABOUT THE MAKER
Deanna Tilston launched Tosier in Suffolk in 2017 as part of her personal journey to learn about and craft great-quality chocolate. This endeavour has turned into an award-winning chocolate maker dedicated to giving farmers a fair price as part of a transparent and traceable supply chain. Tosier’s chocolate is made in twenty-four-kilogram batches, allowing Deanna to keep a close eye on each step of the chocolate-making process. It also means that no batch of chocolate Deanna makes will ever be quite the same; each batch and harvest that Tosier receives has different characteristics. We think this variety is part of the beauty of craft chocolate.
The beans in this bar were sourced from Semuliki Forest Cacao, a grower-centred fermentery that works with over one thousand small-scale organic cocoa farmers. It lies in Bundibugyo, a district of western Uganda that borders the Semuliki National Park. Renowned for its cocoa production, the district also neighbours the Rwenzori Mountains, a diverse ecosystem that is legendary for holding the source of the Nile River.
