Each month we put together a selection of our fine, delicious bean-to-bar chocolate.
We are constantly seeking out delicious new single estate chocolate bars and makers so you’ll never receive the same bar twice.
If you are sending as a gift, make sure you enter your name and address as the ‘billing’ details at checkout, and the recipients name and address as the ‘delivery’ details.
Delivered on a certain date?
If you’d like the first box delivered on a particular date, please let us know in the comments. We’ll do our best to get the chocolate delivered on that date, but we make no promises. Subsequent boxes will be delivered shortly after the first of the month.
The cost of postage for the prepaid subscription is included in the up-front cost.
Craft chocolate makers have control over the whole process, from the beans to the finished chocolate bar. They carefully source cocoa, ensuring they select the best quality raw ingredients, and that farmers are paid fairly for their work.
They often make single origin chocolate bars, where cocoa from a specific area, even a particular farm, are used in a bar.
Beans from each origin will have specific characteristics, which the makers will attempt to bring out in the final product by controlling the process.
The Bean to Bar movement places great emphasis on social responsibility and controlling the entire production chain under one roof. The focus is on putting the bean and its unique taste first, like the grape in the wine industry.
This control over the process also allows Bean to Bar makers to pay a fair price for their cocoa; often many times that market price and well above the Fairtrade price. This allows the farmers to invest in long-term coca production, which is better for the environment.
