Chocolarder is one of the only small batch bean-to-bar chocolate makers in the country, based in Falmouth.
They produce fine quality, stone ground chocolate using organic beans imported from single-estate, family-run plantations. The select beans used at Chocolarder are roasted, winnowed and ground over 4 days before being left to mature for 30 days. The chocolate is then hand tempered and made into bars before being lovingly wrapped in plastic-free packaging. This obsessive attention to detail yields some of the finest chocolate in production today.
Virunga 75% - Cacao beans from the Virunga National Park, the oldest in Africa, are so important. In 2016 the Femmes de Virunga project was launched, the first ever female-led cacao cooperative in the world, and in one of the most dangerous places to be a woman. The project educates and supports these women, enabling them to provide for and support their families. Since the project started in 2016 more than a quarter of a million cacao trees have been planted and there are over 1500 women farmers in the cooperative. Deep chocolate and light brightness of dried red fruits with a peaty whisky end note. (V)
