Organic, Hand-crafted Chocolate
Helping People Feel Good!
(506) 8820-7095 – Canaan de Rivas, Perez Zeledon
Our artisan chocolate is hand-crafted with the finest quality ecologically and socially conscious ingredients, sure to please the palate and heart of the chocolate connoisseur. Our high cacao content, along with our distinctive flavors and exclusive formula and process, make our products the finest choice in Costa Rican chocolate.
Our organic cacao beans are hand selected for their flavor and processed carefully in small batches. Producing chocolate directly from the cacao beans gives us a real advantage in creating the finest, most complex taste for our products.
All of the cacao we use is organic, single-origin, from small farms in Costa Rica’s Southern Pacific Zone.
We peel, sort, roast, grind, conch, and temper small batches of beans and then mold and package each bar and bonbon by hand. We use no artificial flavors or ingredients, lecithin or preservatives, or added oils. Many of our add-in ingredients are locally sourced, or certified organic; always the finest quality we can find.
Our chocolate flavors and creations are evolving all the time. As an artisan chocolate, no two batches are exactly the same.
Most of our products are Vegan friendly; all of our products are soy, gluten, and GMO-free.
OUR CHOCOLATE MAKING WORKSHOPS
It may not be exactly the «Willy Wonka» experience, but this opportunity is a golden ticket to the world of artisan organic chocolate making, from bean to bonbon and bar. Learn about the process of cultivating, fermenting, and drying, peeling, toasting and grinding cacao seeds, as well as much you may not have known about the history of chocolate and its benefits to your health.
