    ABOUT THE MAKER

    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.

      Too bitter for me, and not as smooth as I would like. Still, a pleasant, rich dark chocolate with strong earthy tones, I wish it was a little sweeter though.
