Description

Something wonderful is happening in the tropical rainforests of Tumaco, southern Colombia. There, a group of savvy, young farmers are using native cacao as a weapon to fight against a cycle of poverty and drug violence. Partnering with the local university, they’re revitalizing and spreading native varieties of cacao, turning it into a totally sublime, sustainable crop that provides a future for their families. It’s our delicious privilege to make chocolate with their beans.

We Are Craft Chocolate Makers

From careful sourcing of quality cacao beans to a deep commitment to the farmers who cultivate the beans, we have great respect for people who make food, from grower to artisan. With much care, we handcraft chocolate from our small workshop in beautiful Almonte, Ontario. Our chocolate is carefully made to bring the perfect balance of flavour, and we hope you can taste it in every bite.

Our Story

Drew and I have always savoured chocolate, but we come to making it in a roundabout way. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, we’ve spent our careers working with farmers in developing countries which was just about the best job in the world. We learned much, helped a bit, and gained a huge respect and affection for people who make food, from grower to artisan. Life was a tad spartan, but it was considerably livened up by occasional indulgences of chocolate. When it was time to leave Kabul, it just seemed natural that we’d pursue chocolate making as it lets us connect with farmers, while learning how to craft something we love. We started out casually; a private hobby really. Friends wanted our bars and we experimented more. From there, chocolate became a passion. Soon enough, some insanely talented people joined us, considerably raising our game in the process. Together we’ve become crazily obsessed with making the best possible chocolate we can. There’s so much to learn in chocolate; get the right beans – do the right thing – and the flavours unlocked are incredible. Rush it, and it can be a disaster! We love what we do and reckon it’s worth the time to do it right. - Erica
