An intensely fruity chocolate from Willie Harcourt-Cooze, made with fine cocoa beans from the Sambirano Valley in Madagascar. The vibrant blackcurrant, raspberry and balsamic notes make this a sure fire hit with fans of fruity chocolate.


You may remember Willie Harcourt-Cooze as the larger-than-life character behind Channel 4’s “Willie’s Wonky Chocolate Factory” back in 2008. The series followed Willie from his cacao farm in Venezuela through his roller coaster ride setting up his bean-to-bar chocolate factory in Devon.

Willie is a true pioneer of the artisan chocolate movement in the UK, and the first of the modern independent bean-to-bar makers. His passion is to open people’s eyes to real chocolate. By this he means chocolate that really brings alive the flavour characteristics of the great single-estate beans that he uses. The recipe is simple – cacao, natural cocoa butter and raw cane sugar – no vanilla and no soya lecithin, nothing that can get in the way of the flavour of the beans. He even uses less cocoa butter than most chocolate makers because, although that means more stopping and cleaning in the factory, the flavours last longer in your mouth.

  1. Lynette A.

    Is Willie’s all deep roast? I get the same flavors and mouth sensations in many of them. A deep, dark cocoa powder flavor in every origin. In this Madagascar I get a bit of the typical fruity flavors but it is hard to discern in a dusty fog of cocoa powder.
