Made with Öko Caribe cocoa beans from a community of dedicated cacao farmers in the Duarte province of Dominican Republic. Öko Caribe is a collective of around 165 farmers, each of whom owns several hectares of land for farming cacao. These partners are extensively trained by the founders of Oko Caribe, Adriano de Jesus Rodriguez and Gualberto Acebey Torrejon, who spent several decades refining their skills with a passionate and scientific zeal before beginning their own cacao enterprise. They work closely with their farmers, assisting them not only with the technical aspects of cacao cultivation but also by making their resources available to help with microfinance loans and contributions to community projects.
All of the farms are certified organic, with the wet beans being collected from each farm gate to be processed through fermentation and drying, keenly overseen by Adriano and Gualberto. Their obsessive attention to detail results in a bean like very few others, consistently surpassing all expectations in quality and aroma.
The honeycomb is made using Cornish Black Bee Honey, the toasted almonds sail-shipped from Spain to Penzance and the nougatine is made in house using local free-range eggs and unrefined sugar from a green harvest project in Brazil.
About the Brand
Chocolarder was formed in 2012 by pastry chef Mike. He began experimenting happily in his own kitchen, making small batches from raw beans and getting intimate with the processes of roasting, grinding and alchemizing to produce fine chocolate from scratch. It wasn't long before Mike started making his chocolate full time, and today his chocolate is sold all over the world and used by Michelin star chefs.
Chocolarder is still producing fine quality, stone ground chocolate using organic beans imported from single estate, family run plantations in Venezuela, Java, Madagascar, Peru and the Dominican Republic. It sources directly from the farmers themselves, and by establishing this direct channel from the farm to the kitchen, it can be picky about the quality of the beans and be sure that the money it pays is going to those who do the real work. Having found reputable growers producing high quality beans, Chocolarder commits to purchasing its harvest always for above the market prices.
Chocolarder is still one of the only small batch bean-to-bar chocolate makers in this country.
