What is bean to bar?
Bean to bar is the term used to describe chocolate that is made straight from the cocoa bean. The majority of chocolatiers buy a bulk source of chocolate and melt it down to craft their chocolates. We roast, winnow, refine, conche and temper all of our chocolate in our workshop.
How long does the chocolate making process take?
From whole beans to finished chocolate, it’s a four-day process.
What kind of cocoa bean do you use?
All of our cocoa beans come from a cooperative in San Martin, Peru
Why do you use cocoa beans from Peru?
Bryan and his wife, Dahlia, spent time traveling in Costa Rica and Peru, and visited the regions where the cacao is grown. Dahlia is the founder of a non-profit in Peru.
Why don’t you have other origins available?
All of our chocolate is made from Peruvian cacao. We will be introducing other origins in the coming months.
Who designed your packaging?
Scarlet Duba, of Duba Design in Kingston, NY.
How are you eco-friendly?
Our chocolate bars are placed in biodegradable bags and wrapped in paper. Our printed materials use soy-based and vegetable-based inks.
