Each batch is handcrafted with the highest quality cacao beans sourced from a single region, and using as little as two ingredients to achieve the purest flavor profile possible. Every one of our sumptuous chocolate bars is handcrafted to perfection. Starting with raw cacao beans, we carefully select, sort, roast, winnow, grind, refine, temper, mould and wrap each bar by hand.

The name Acalli (ah-CALL-ee) means "canoe" in Nahuatl, the same language that gave us the word "chocolate." We are chocolate makers, meaning we work from bean to bar. While our home is in New Orleans, cacao is by nature a tropical plant, and we source the cacao we use through direct relationships with farmers at origin. We chose a canoe for our logo to represent those things about chocolate that we love most: its way of connecting people in distant places, its elegant simplicity, and the promise of adventure and discovery in every new bar. Great chocolate is a collaborative effort between cacao growers and chocolate makers, and in that spirit our goal is to make bars that faithfully represent the work our partners do at origin. The flavors in our chocolate are not just the result of careful roasting and conching; they also represent careful attention during cultivation, harvest, and especially fermentation and drying. We hope that by highlighting the communities and cooperatives we work with and showcasing the flavors in their cacao, we can bring a little more recognition home to cacao growers themselves.

Al Nassma3
Quality is not a means to an end, but an integral part of our philosophy, from the careful process of attaining the precious camel milk, the meticulous selection of hand picked ingredients to the processing standards in our own manufacture.

Here we are highly generous with one aspect: time. The result is an incomparably exquisite taste that for Al Nassma stems from our unique blending of camel milk and geniune ingredients such as Bourbon vanilla, finest acacia honey and the highest grade cocoa beans.

Alce Nero1
Our story begins in the late 70s, when two young cooperatives, one located in the Apennines of the Marches region, the other in the Tuscan-Emilian Apenines, decided to pioneer a change in their methods of agriculture and farming. Back then (and still today), the move towards organic farming and bee breeding represented a new way, both ideal and concrete, of producing and offering delicious, healthy products that respect the environment and nature around us. We are responsible for the entire chain of production: from the fields where we choose the most suitable and traditional varieties of flora, to the production techniques that respect that quality of our raw materials, to the processing, which uses innovative technology to protect the natural aspects of our foods.

Alter Eco4
The Alter Eco project was born in 1998. At that time the ambition of Tristan Lecomte, founder of Alter Eco was already set up as a full and coherent project. The challenge: to enable people in rehabilitation to work in a small shop specialized in the sale of fair trade products, whose profits would fund a center of charitable associations. Today, 14 years after the creation of the first Alter Eco shop, our project supports 40 cooperatives in 25 countries, we have established a partnership with French farmers, we distribute organic and fair products in several European countries, North America and Japan, we offer in France Alter Eco products in nearly 4,000 retail outlets (also available in bulk in some stores), we analyze our environmental impact, are involved in projects to preserve tropical forests, and take heart of our involvement in education and public awareness of sustainable development.

In 2007, Frederick Schilling, founder/CEO of Dagoba Organic Chocolate, received by mail a box filled with cacao samples, sent by Diego Badaró, from Brazil. Amazed at the beauty and high quality of the beans, Frederick replied instantly, interested in working with Diego somehow. One month later, Frederick came to Bahia, where the two men soon realized that their journey together had just begun. This first contact, triggered by 100 cacao beans sent to the US, was the founding stone of what nowadays is AMMA CHOCOLATE, one of Brazil's major manufacturers of craft chocolate. Diego Badaró belongs to the 5th generation of a traditional cacao farming family from the South of Bahia. He's been bringing back the cacao tradition, by developing in his family's farms an organic cacao culture, and the results have found great success in the specialized market, both in Brazil and abroad.

Anthon Berg is one of the oldest chocolate manufacturers in Denmark. Founded in 1884, and later appointed official confectioner to the Royal Danish Court, Anthon Berg is one of the few companies to manufacture its own chocolate from scratch - from roasting to conching - which accounts for its superb quality and taste. Anthon Berg was acquired by the Toms Group in 1954 and was established in the USA in 2007.

Antica Dolceria Bonajuto3
Founded by Francesco Bonajuto in 1880. We begin with a mass of semi-ground cocoa that still contains its cocoa butter. The mass is heated to make it fluid, and at a precise temperature, it is mixed with castor sugar and spices (cinnamon or vanilla). The mixing is done with a "refiner", a modern-day replacement of the metate. The mixture is kept at a temperature that prevents the sugar crystals from melting (they remain an integral part of the chocolate bar). The final phase consists of spreading the mixture into forms, which will then be pounded to ensure that the chocolate takes the desired shape. This particular "cold working" of the chocolate excludes the phase of conching, which many think is the secret to keeping flavours alive that would otherwise disappear. The strength of this particular product is the simplicity of the technique and the fact that there is no addition of butter or other extraneous substances (vegetable fats, milk derivatives or lecithin). Bonajuto's chocolate is composed only of a mixture of cocoa, sugar and spices.

Artisan du Chocolat16
Born in Ireland in 1972, Gerard Coleman trained as a chef and pastry chef in Dublin, London and New York. At the age of 25, he trained as a chocolatier in Belgium before returning to London and founding Artisan du Chocolat in 2000. Gerard's work starts with searching for exceptional and rare cocoa beans carefully harvested from South America, the Caribbean and Asia with distinct taste profiles. He transforms these into chocolate bars adding cane sugar and dried milk from the British Isles, conching and refining in house in Kent. Artisan du chocolat is one of the very few British artisan chocolatiers who produce chocolate (and chocolates) from ground cocoa beans instead of buying in already made couverture.

Blue Bandana3
Blue Bandana Chocolate Maker is an award-winning line of single-origin chocolate bars created by Eric Lampman, head of R&D at Lake Champlain Chocolates and son of founder Jim Lampman. Eric's work with Blue Bandana reflects a desire to go deeper into the chocolate-making process. To forge direct-trade partnerships with growers and co-ops. And to improve cocoa quality by reinvesting in training and education at origin. The result is bean-to-bar chocolate that captures the distinctive terroir -- or taste of place -- of the land where the cocoa was grown. The History It all began with a trip Eric took to the Dominican Republic in 2009. There he experienced firsthand how cocoa was cultivated, harvested, fermented, and dried. Fascinated, he brought some beans back to Vermont and started experimenting with small test roasts, learning how to winnow, refine, conche -- discovering how to make chocolate from scratch. The rest, you could say, is making history

Chocolat Bonnat's history stems back to 1884, when Félix Bonnat first opened his doors at 8 cours Sénozan in Voiron, a Bonnat Shoptown in the French Alps in the southwest of France, about an hour northwest of Grenoble. Félix's two sons, Armand and Gaston, began to help with business operations soon after, and in 1956, scion Raymond Bonnat, with his wife Nicole, took full control of the firm. Formally schooled in business as well as chocolate, Raymond guided the company to exponential growth. Now four generations strong, Bonnat is run by two of Raymond and Nicole's four children, Cécile and Stéphane.

Branson's Chocolates1
Branson's Chocolates was founded on the love of fine chocolate and fudge. Wanting to make chocolate and fudge the traditional hand made way; we use recipes that originated in 1887 on Mackinac Island, Michigan and fine chocolates from Peter's Chocolate. In 1887, a candy maker on the island of Mackinac Island, Michigan was making a chocolate fondue that accidentally set up on the marble slab. This resulted in "fudge" with a smooth creamy texture. The candy maker refined the "marble slab" fudge recipe and technique. To this day Branson's Chocolates still uses the same recipes, the finest ingredients, no preservatives and techniques that the candy maker started so many years ago. All items are hand made in small batches, to ensure quality, in the quiet town of Ashland in Southern Oregon.

In 1826 Pier Paul Caffarel converts a small ex-tannery at the edge of the old Turin city centre into a workshop for the production of chocolate. To produce its exclusive creations Caffarel uses only raw materials and ingredients of the best quality. For the most important ingredient of all, the cacao bean, Caffarel chooses only the best of the crop from countries in Africa and Central-South America. The excellent hazelnuts, main ingredient of Caffarel production, are of the best choice: 'Piedmont PGI' (Protected Geographical Indication). There are also other good quality raw materials like Bari almonds and Pistachios from Bronte. The most qualified suppliers in Italy, France and Germany provide milk and sugar necessary to produce the best chocolate. All of these raw materials are then subjected to severe laboratory tests to guarantee that they meet the high standards expected by Caffarel.

Our process begins up in the Ecuadorean Andes mountains, in the center of the world, at latitude 00. There, the crystal clear waters begin to flow to form the magical Caoni River which is born in the untamed rainforest of Ecuador. Its waters then flow into the rich subtropical and tropical lowlands of Esmeraldas, Manabi and Los Rios, and irrigate and feed the small, old traditional cocoa bean plantations home of the unique Arriba cocoa trees where hundreds of native families use their ancestral knowledge to grow these beans. After the beans have been sun dried, our people carefully select the very best of them. Our master craftsmen create single-origin, dark chocolates that express the natural flavors, aromas and textures that only Arriba cocoa beans can provide.

Around year 715, in a green valley where a river flowed, there was a mill whose owner was the Count of Laon. His daughter Bertrade, a fabled beauty but for one foot which was longer than the other, fell in love with the Palace's Master, Pepin the Short, son of Charles Martel. They begat a son, Karl, whom History remembers as Karolus Magnus, Charles the Great - Charlemagne. The mill was destroyed around year 1000, and Charlemagne's Farm was built and expanded time and again upon its ruins; it took its current form around the 17th Century. An artist, Denise Courant Bellefroid, decided to establish there a chocolate factory dedicated to producing the highest-quality products. Our company has been founded in 1974 and our staff is composed of 17 members. We are producing first class chocolate made only from natural ingredients, without any G.M.O. or oil addition.
Chuck Siegel began experimenting with chocolate when he bought a book on truffle making and a block of Belgian chocolate. What started as an attempt to impress a female friend who was a chocolate connoisseur, ended up being a passion of Chuck's that would later define his career. Chuck has been a part of the San Francisco chocolate scene since 1987. He taught himself everything he knows about the art of chocolate making through trial and error. With the help of artisan chocolate pioneers, Joseph Schmidt and Alice Mendrich, he learned the skills he needed to start his own company, Attivio Confections, at the remarkably young age of 25. After selling Attivo in 1995, Chuck took a break from making confections to work as a business consultant. Not being able to stay away for long, Chuck founded his second artisan chocolate company, Charles Chocolates, in 2004 where he remains today. With Charles Chocolates, Chuck has set out to redefine the world of fine chocolate confections by using only the finest ingredients, including some of the world's best chocolates, organic herbs, fruits, and nuts as well as the freshest cream and butter.

Chocolate Tree5
Our mission at Chocolate Tree is to create fine flavour chocolate whilst protecting biodiversity and rewarding farmers with a true premium for their crops of heritage cacao varieties. We purchase cacao from farms in Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Madagascar. These ultra premium cacaos have been fermented and dried to an exceptional standard by the growers at origin. Only through these careful post harvest processes can the true flavours of our unique chocolate be brought to life.

We take a perfectionist approach to our chocolate making, obsessively roasting, winnowing, grinding and conching the cacao in small batches. Our range includes some purist origin bars alongside some bars with inclusions and alternatives to dairy and cane sugar. We have won several International Chocolate Awards and we are recognised as one of the world's most passionate chocolate makers.

We also create a range of bars from organic Belgian couverture. Organic farming on small plantations is in fact the best way to preserve biodiversity and achieve the highest flavours. The pesticide free agriculture allows midges to thrive and fertilize the cacao flowers, thus helping the plants to create the cacao pods and beans from which the chocolate is made. Not only is this organic technique the best way to farm cacao, it is the only good use for a midge we have ever heard of!

In December 2009 we opened a classical yet contemporary chocolaterie at 123 Bruntsfield Place, in the boutique shopping district and much loved residential area of Edinburgh. We aim to provide a unique and comfortable atmosphere for you to explore the delights of fine flavour chocolate.

Chocovic has been manufacturing chocolate and cacao derivatives for all kinds of professional uses since 1872. Chocovic's origins can be traced to the city of Vic, in the province of Barcelona, where a small family business called Chocolates Arumi was set up. Its commitment to high quality service led it to create special blends for locals to suit their particular tastes. In 1977 the business was bought by a Spanish company, Nederland, which changed the name of the business to Chocovic and turned it into an industrial chocolate factory specialised in artisan pastry making and confectionery. In 2009, Chocovic entered the Barry Callebaut group, the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate -- from the cocoa bean to the finished chocolate product. As such, the advantages of belonging to a large business group are combined with Chocovic's technical knowledge and experience.

De Vries5
DeVries Chocolate was America's pioneer micro producer of fine chocolate bars. Founded in 2005, the company was born of a hobby turned obsession; a chocolate-loving glass artist was transformed into a nationally-acknowledged chocolate artisan. On a trip to Costa Rica, Steve DeVries picked up some cacao beans with the idea of trying to make his own chocolate bars at home. The hobbyist was surprised to discover that his homemade chocolate, despite being quite rudimentary, was extremely complex and sophisticated in flavor. His experiment was enough to convince him to focus his efforts from transforming glass into art to creating edible gold from cacao beans. It is sad to report that De Vries has, at least temporarily, stopped making chocolate at this time.

DeBrand Fine Chocolates1
Growing up in a family deeply involved in the confectionery arts, Cathy Brand-Beere began working with chocolate at the age of eight. She had always loved the creative process of making fine chocolates and remembers dreaming of opening a "real chocolate shop" when she grew up so she could always do something that she truly enjoyed. Throughout high school Cathy made and sold custom designed wedding cakes as a summer job, but it was her passion for confectionery arts that led her to open the first DeBrand chocolate shop in October 1987. The first DeBrand store was located on Wells Street in Fort Wayne in Cathy's childhood home, a historic 100+ year old home unfortunately no longer in existence. The name "DeBrand" came from the French prefix "De", meaning "from", and Cathy's last name, "Brand". Today, DeBrand employs nearly 100 people with our three shops in Fort Wayne and a mail order department which ships our chocolates all over the world. But rest assured, we will never outgrow our commitment to perfection! The quality and freshness of each chocolate remains our absolute top priority. We still use only the finest ingredients, whether they are imported from other countries or found fresh locally.

Gerardus Johannes Droste started a confectionery business in Haarlem (Holland) in 1863. The first Droste factory of the firm G.J. Droste opened its doors on August 2, 1890. Because of a lack of room, the factory was relocated to the Noorder Buiten Spaarne in 1891. Since 1891 Droste had been able to allocate the complete chocolate process in-house. The cocoa beans were stored in the loft, while sales took place in the retail store. It was in this plant were the production of cocoa and chocolate started. This waterside location was very favourable for Droste, enabling the delivery of raw materials and the transport of finished products by boat. In 1898 Droste was officially entitled to use the coat of arms of Queen-widow Emma. In 1961 a new cocoa-factory had been opened. In 1964 the factory received the "Royal" designation. Droste's new name became: Koninklijke Droste Fabrieken N.V. In 1975 N.V. the inheritor, Widow J. Van Nelle, took over the share capital of Droste. By the year 1977 Droste's ownership was transmitted to Standard Brands Incorporated. Because of the transmittal to an American company, the 'Royal' title had to be taken away from all Droste products. The name was then changed into Droste Fabrieken B.V. By the year 1985 Van Nelle separated itself from Standard Brands, which was, in turn, taken over by Nabisco. In 1986 the production of Droste was transferred to Vaassen, Gelderland. The old production location in Haarlem continued as Dutch Cocoa & Chocolate Company B.V. A new factory was opened in Vaassen, in 1988, where the products of Venz (chocolate sprinkles) were also made. It was also in this year that Van Nelle had been taken over by Sara Lee/D.E. Two years later the Dutch sugar- and food concern CSM, bought Droste. Since January 1, 1997 Droste was sold to the Swiss-based company Hosta. Venz moved to Koninklijke De Ruijter B.V. in Baarn. Droste B.V., as of now, is still situated as an independent company in Vaassen, Gelderland.

We source the finest beans that we can find, working directly with the cocoa farmers or as close as we can get.

All of our bars are single origin -- they are made with beans from one harvest from one region of one country. The taste of each bar will very year-on-year: as the growing conditions change so the flavours slightly change.

An exceptional chocolate begins with the land. The most flavorful and aromatic cacao in the world grows in Venezuela. There, on small plantations in secluded coastal valleys, the grassy llanos, and the foothills of the Andes, generations of farmers have perfected the art of nurturing these delicate and coveted beans. Since 1929 El Rey has used only Venezuelan Cacao, fermented, sun-dried and processed with the most advanced technology. From this marriage of art and science are born premium chocolates that redefine world standards of excellence.

Enna Chocolate1 
We make our chocolate in micro batches from the finest ethically sourced cacao and other ingredients that we can find. Chocolate's flavor depends first on its origin (genetics + terroir + farming practices + fermentation) and then on the chocolate-maker's skill, senses, and artistry (sort + roast + crack + winnow + grind + conche + temper + mold + lots and lots of tasting). Enna's mission is to learn the story of cacao, explore the full range of its complexity of flavors, and share this magic with you. The Enna logo emblem is a glyph of an oyster, used by the Mayans to represent zero in their ancient counting system. Zero is the starting point of any creative endeavor, resonating with our sense of adventure and our artistic approach to making chocolate. Oysters are native to New England, so this symbol also pays homage to cacao's Central American origins as well as our New England home.

Feodora developed out of a sugar refinery established in Tangermünde on the Elbe River in 1826. Hermann Meyer requested Empress Auguste Victoria for permission to name his chocolate after her sister, Princess Feodora. She agreed and since then her sister's personal signature as well as the crown and coat-of-arms of the royal house of Schleswig Holstein have adorned Feodora's chocolates. Following World War II, the company was expropriated and parts of the factory were dismantled. It found a new site in Bremen where the company then relaunched its chocolate and praline production. Feodora was acquired by Toms Group in 2012.

He later took Green as his surname to reflect his environmental interests. Grenada Chocolate Company is a cocoa-growing and chocolate-making cooperative, producing chocolate from tree to bar. Their organic cocoa farm uses solar energy to power the factory. On June 1, 2013, Mott Green was tragically electrocuted while working at the factory.

The cocoa at the Hacienda El Castillo is the Don Homero -- Cerecita. The Don Homero refers to the variety of the cocoa used in the plantation, and Cerecita means the region where the Hacienda is located: both determining factors in the unique flavor and aroma of our cocoa. The Don Homero is of Trinitarian origin, and the Cerecita valley is located west of the city of Guayaquil, on the way to the coastal beaches.

All of our cacao is harvested with care by hand and processed under the watchful eye of our master chocolatier.

As early as 1955 the first Heilemann pralines were produced in Karl Heilemann's master confectioners in Memmingen. The business expanded in 1977 and relocated to more spacious premises in Woringen. Following the death of the company founder in 1982, the business which had in the meantime acquired a wide reputation for its excellent confectionery specialties, was taken over by the confectionery specialist, Friedel and carried on as a subsidiary. 1990 saw the building of a new confectionery factory equipped with the latest technology in Woringen. In 2001 Confiserie Heilemann GmbH parted ways with the Friedel company to independently continue its chosen pursuit of an uncompromising premium strategy. For over half a century, Confiserie Heilemann has dedicated itself to the creation of exclusive chocolate delicacies. At the heart of south Germany's Allgäu region, exquisite pralines, fine chocolate and many other masterpieces of the confectioner's art are handcrafted in premium artisanal tradition.

For over 100 years the Rizek family has planted, harvested and produced high quality cocoa beans.

David Menkes worked in the visual effects industry in Hollywood for over 18 years. His passion for food and chocolate in particular culminated in a visit to a cocoa plantation in St. Lucia in 2011. In 2012, David and Corey Menkes started Little Brown Squares, a chocolate blog dedicated to bean to bar makers. After being sent to the Northwest Chocolate Festival on behalf of Chocolate Connoisseur Magazine, they quickly realized there were no makers in Los Angeles and decided to change that. In March of 2014, David bought a small bag of cacao beans and roasted them in his toaster oven, hand-peeled the beans, and hand-ground them using a mortar and pestle. The resulting chocolate was terrible, but David was determined to continue. Eventually, the couple would acquire small tabletop melangers which could grind the beans for days at a time. Eventually, their landlord asked them to move the operation out of their apartment, and they moved into a shared commercial kitchen in West LA. There, they grew their tiny operation to a small factory, producing roughly 2,500 bars per month. They are currently looking to expand, purchase larger equipment and move into a larger dedicated space, and make decisions on financing.

Lonohana Estate8
Lonohana Estate Chocolate is located on the island of O‘ahu, Hawaii and is the result of two families’ (Seneca Klassen's and Lawrence Boone's) dream to create a vertically integrated chocolate company here in the United States. By controlling the entire product cycle, starting with our own Hawaii-grown cacao all the way through crafting small batches of world-class chocolate bars in Honolulu, we aim to share where this beloved food comes from, how it is grown and made.

We propagated our own cacao seedlings, planted our first trees in 2009, and now farm 14 acres of cacao by hand on the North Shore of O‘ahu. We harvest the fruit, use wild fermentations, and dry the beans, up on the farm. We then hand craft small batches of chocolate bars at our solar-powered factory in Honolulu.

From 2009 to 2014 we were exclusively a farming operation. It takes roughly 5 years before the trees begin to produce cacao pods and in order to make ferments optimal you need to have enough seed harvested together, so we took a plunge into the deep end with a decade-long planting regime that now includes 14 acres. Straddling the 21st parallel, our farm is one of the northern-most plantations in the world.

Lumineux Chocolate produces small-batch, European-style chocolate of the highest quality using the best ingredients and time-honored techniques. Lumineux was started to showcase cocoa beans that are not widely used in the United States, beans from the African continent. While most African cocoa beans are not known for their quality, we carefully search and source out the best and most flavorful cocoa from all over Africa. Our desire is to illuminate the depth and complexity of flavors in these under-appreciated beans. Chocolate, for us, is not merely about indulging; it is about bringing light to the unique differences in the terroir of different African countries.

Ben and Becca Snyder have spent a combined 20 years in the restaurant industry–Ben as a pastry chef and baker and Becca as a cake decorator and baker. Chocolate became an instant love and an opportunity to use their collective skills to create unique flavor combinations done in unusual ways. They want to open palates to new flavor profiles using ingredients associated with the regions their cocoa beans are sourced from.

Often called the Garden Island, Kaua’i is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands and, as a result, has the most developed soils and fertile growing conditions. In addition to our specialty crops, you’ll find a wide variety of botanicals around our farm that influence the taste of our honey and chocolate.

Mission Chocolate4
I am Californian- born in Los Angeles, raised on a peach/plum/chicken farm in Central California and attended university in Berkeley where Alice Waters and ScharffenBerger Chocolate were my distractions from homework. Berkeley was the birth of the bean to bar craft chocolate movement and locavore movement and it happened at the same time I was studying Business and Latin American Literature. All of this influenced the type of human I would become. My first job was in marketing at the Le Cordon Bleu culinary school where I was exposed to the the world of gastronomy. I learned my chocolatier skills with Ewald Notter, Andrew Shotts, and Shawn Williams. In Los Angeles I was a chef instructor at the Summer Cooking Academy, and in 2005 I founded a confection workshop which featured flavors of Latin America made with Guittard Chocolate. I moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area and in 2011 established my retail location in Berkeley which was immediately featured as one of the best sweet shops in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Later, I was named “Most Gifted Chocolatier” by the San Francisco International Chocolate Salon in 2013. I sold the retail location in 2013 to pursue a more intimate relationship with cacao growers, to become a chocolate maker with the amazing bean to bar artisans at Dandelion Chocolate, and to move to Brazil. -- Arcelia Gallardo

Original Beans17
The idea for Original Beans was born when a German conservation entrepreneur, a Dutch fair trade pioneer, and an American organic food marketer met in 2006. The company's vision follows in the footsteps of founder/CEO Philipp Kauffmann's family heritage. His direct forefather, Georg Ludwig Hartig, helped coin the term sustainability ("Nachhaltigkeit" in German) and in 1791 wrote that "any wise forest management must use the forest in such a way that generations thereafter can draw at least as much advantage from it as the presently living generation has." Original Beans' Board of Directors consists of Josh Mailman, Pieter Borkent, Willem van Weede, and Philipp Kauffmann.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert, a French couple from Reunion Island, started a small artisanal chocolate company in 1940 in Toamasina, on the east coast of Madagascar. The chocolate factory transformed Madagascan cocoa from the vast plains of Brickaville (a sugar town lying 100 km from Tamatave). Around 1948, the family gave the company to a French settler who relocated the factory to Antananarivo, capital of Madagascar. Following the Malagasy Uprising and subsequent independence, the French settlers gradually left the Big Island and the nationalization of the economy began. In 1977, Robert Chocalaterie was owned by a French family by the name of Berger, who sold to a Malagasy business group run by the Ramanandraibe family. The Ramandraibe group is currently working closely with the farmers of Brickaville to rebuild local expertise in cocoa production.

We carefully source our beans from select farms and nurture each beautiful bean to its full chocolaty potential. We bring out the complex range of natural flavours inherent in each bean and transform it into the chocolate of your dreams. The universe is unfolding. Taylor Kennedy, founder of Sirene Chocolate, has been a globetrotter for most of his life. He has worked with The National Geographic Society in photography, writing and photo editing for more than 18 years now.

Toronto born, Kennedy received a double major in cell and molecular biology and economics from Tulane University in New Orleans and also studied finance at Cambridge University in England. He has resided in Toronto, Paris, Cambridge, New Orleans, Washington, and now calls Victoria home.

As a specialty chocolate maker, Taylor is able to oversee production from the cacao bean to the bars on the shelves and feel good about each of the steps along the way.

The Maloney brothers (Dominic, Nicholas and Daniel) were born and raised on the beautiful Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Growing up they were always surrounded by cacao trees and enjoyed eating chocolate made from the trees they grew and from the pods they picked. They brought their strong passion for chocolate to the United States, where they realized the most popular chocolate products did not have the same distinct taste they grew up on. After traveling back to their roots in Trinidad they realized that they wanted to combine their love for Trinidad & Tobago and New York City, which is reflected in their product: A unique bean to bar chocolate experience. They started Sol Cacao in 2015. Sol Cacao is an artisan “bean to bar” chocolate manufacturer that crafts single origin chocolate bars in the South Bronx (Port Morris). The company strives to create the finest quality of chocolate by having a thorough understanding and expertise associated with every step in the chocolate manufacturing process from growing the cacao pods to the actual crafting of the chocolate bars.

We work closely with our cacao suppliers who directly source the finest ethically grown and produced cacao beans. Each bean origin has its own unique flavor profile. We roast each origin to ensure its flavor will be developed to its fullest for your enjoyment. After cooling, we carefully crack the beans to remove the shells from the Nibs; the shells are donated to community gardens. The Nibs are poured into the conch where they are ground by granite wheels. The conching process further develops the flavor and produces the luscious mouth feel of our chocolate. We then age the chocolate according to bean origin until ITS time. This process creates the "sheen" and "snap" that is so important when eating a chocolate bar. Each bar is placed in a compostable cello inner wrapper, heat sealed, then placed into our uniquely designed box; please recycle.

Taza Chocolate, founded in 2006 by Larry Slotnick and Alex Whitmore, is unique among U.S. micro-producers. Instead of focusing on refined bars, Taza leaves its cacao in a more unadulterated form. The company makes rustic-style chocolate, as it was made from the creation of the first chocolate bar in 1847 (by the Fry Brothers in Bristol, England) until the invention of the conche in 1879. "Rustic style" means a certain amount of gritty texture, not from external sources but because the early processing was not sophisticated enough to break down all of the particles in the chocolate.

TCHO (pronounced "cho") gives California its second bean-to-bar company after Scharffen Berger, which arguably is responsible for initiating this small-scale bean-to-bar trend in America. TCHO was started by Timothy Childs, a space shuttle technologist, and Louis Rossetto, co-founder of Wired Magazine (the "T" stands for technology, the CHO for chocolate). Where TCHO also differs is in its marketing and product development strategy. Rather than hire a focus group to tweak a chocolate's flavor to perfection, or use their own palates, as the other microbatch producers do, TCHO conducts public "beta testing," a product development process that allows the purchasers to give feedback that the company uses to refine the product.

Terroir Chocolate4
While honeymooning in California in April, Josh and Kristin Mohagen toured a chocolate factory in San Francisco. After returning home, the Mohagens began planning to start their own chocolate business. Shortly thereafter, Terroir Chocolate was born. Kristin graduated from Scottsdale Culinary Institute in 2005, where she focused on pastries. Starting her own business was something she had been dreaming of for a long time. Josh took some business classes in college and is starting his own financial planning business soon, so it seemed a perfect fit for the two to go into business together, with Kristin coming up with the ideas and creating the chocolate and Josh in charge of many of the business decisions. Currently a kitchen business, they hope to expand soon.

Tony's Choco Lonely2
Almost 11 years ago the Dutch investigative reporter Teun (Tony) van de Keuken launched an investigation about the use of slavery within the cocoa industry on his consumer report show Keuringsdienst van Waarde. He was literally shocked to discover that most of the chocolate on supermarket shelves was harvested by slaves

The origins of Chocolates Trapa date back to December of 1891, when a group of monks settled in the Trappist Monastery in Palencia and inaugurated the first chocolate factory. In 1960 the Cistercian monks sold the factory, along with all their old manufacturing formulas. In 1964 the company Chocolates Trapa was incorporated. Adapting to the changing markets, the chocolate factory started manufacturing bonbons in 1969. Today the company produces bonbons, bars and drinking chocolate.

Treehouse Chocolate Co.1
Curiosity has driven Aaron Koch to do some wild things.... It made him leave his Singapore homeland and venture to the frigid waters of the Oregon coast. It led him to sail a boat through pirate territory in the Celebes Sea. A boat that later got struck by lightning. But the greatest thing curiosity guided him to do was work on the cacao farms of Hawaii. There, Aaron dug his hands into the dirt and discovered a lifelong passion. In the tiny treehouse he called home, an idea formed: a chocolate company that does justice to the craft and spirit of cacao farming. That uses only premium organic cacao, sustainably sourced direct from the farmers. Treehouse foregoes unhealthy substitutes in favor of simple, natural deliciousness.

Originally founded as a premium chocolate mail order company in 1984 by Bob and Paige Leavitt, Vivra Chocolate today is the culmination of Bob's childhood in Paris visiting patisseries, Paige's traveling the world along the way, and various other careers, primarily in fashion. The original expedition in mail order chocolate was re-founded in 2010 as Vivra Chocolate, bringing 30 years of chocolate experience, fashion sense and French heritage to a new vision for chocolate, featuring smooth and refined chocolate matched with adventurous and fun flavors. For our Single Origin Bean to Bar we carefully source the finest beans from outstanding growing regions around the world, then hand select the beans and roast, crack, sort, winnow, grind, and then conch the chocolate in our Chocolate Studio until it meets our criterion for smooth and refined chocolate. Once the chocolate is smooth and flavorful, we temper the chocolate and then cast into bars. Our goal is to create smooth and enjoyable chocolate while retaining the best flavors representative of each bean growing region. We believe no chocolate meant to be enjoyed should be astringent, dry or grainy which means some sources never become chocolate bars.

Wailua Estates (Dole)5
For over a century, until its closure in 1996, the Waialua Sugar Company in the town of Waialua, on the North Shore of Oahu, was home to one of the largest sugarcane plantations in the state of Hawaii. The North Shore is also the original location of Dole Food Company's pineapple growing and processing operation established by James Dole in 1901. Several generations and many thousands of immigrants from China, Japan, Korea, Portugal, and the Philippines came to work and live in the plantation towns and camps, raising their children and making Hawaii their home. With increasing globalization of agriculture, an economic need to diversify arose and culminated in the mid 1990s. With the closure of the sugarcane plantation in 1996 and in response to a growing consumer demand for distinctive, high quality Hawaiian grown products, Dole initiated a program of diversified agriculture to assist displaced workers while expanding the local market with new products. Crops were selected and planted to take advantage of new, emerging markets and products included papaya, mango, tropical flowers, and specialty crops such as coffee and cacao. Mr. David Murdock, Chairman of Dole Food Company, was especially interested in the healthful antioxidant benefits of coffee and cacao. Waialua Estate Coffee and Cacao is dedicated to this vision of healthy, nutritious food products and the continued practice of diversified agriculture on the North Shore of Oahu.

Zak's Chocolate is a family-owned small-batch craft chocolate maker and an artisan chocolatier. At Zak's we roast ethically sourced cocoa beans and make our own single-origin and House Blend chocolate to use in bars, truffles, brownies and other yummy confections. Everything is done by hand, from sorting cocoa beans to wrapping our bars to hand crafting our truffles. Our single-origin dark chocolates contain only cocoa beans (most of which are organically certified), organic cane sugar and a small amount of cocoa butter (which we press in-house from the same beans used in each origin bar).

The inventor Josef Zotter has constantly invested in his products. He has been involved in fair trade since 2004, in 2005 his company converted to organic and in 2006 he opened his own Chocolate Factory. Since the opening of the Chocolate Factory Josef Zotter has ranked among the few quality chocolate makers around the world whose chocolate production processes are located under the same roof: From the roasting of the cocoa beans via the rolling up to the finishing touches in the conching plant everything is carried out with a high degree of sensitivity. In this way Zotter clearly positions himself against standardized mass production and the concentration of the chocolate market. In his Chocolate Factory there is no run-of-the-mill processing.
