Bean To Bar

The Journey

Cocoa pods grow large + colourful whilst they ripen on the tree

The soft white cocoa fruit develop their flavour in fermentation boxes covered with banana leaves

Cocoa beans are dried under the sun on drying patios

The beans are shipped from around the world to our factory in West Sussex We roast slowly in our drum roaster in small batches Roasted cocoa beans are cracked to reveal the inner nib
Winnowing removes the shell leaving only the cocoa nib Cocoa nibs are ground to a rough cocoa liquor The cocoa is stone ground and refined into smooth silky liquid chocolate
Our chocolate is conched over several days removing bitterness and releasin the true flavours The chocolate is tempered by warming and cooling to precise temperatures so it sets perfectly

Finally it's moulded, then packaged ready for you to enjoy
