Chocolate you can enjoy with a clear conscience
Caring for those who make chocolate with care for you
We simply can’t get enough of chocolate – like two kids constantly discovering it for the first time. A singular desire, one that moves, stirs every fiber of your being. The type of chocolate that resonates in your brain and tattoos your soul. We like flavors that are different, that have that magic je ne sais quoi you simply can’t identify – that thaumaturgical IT that comes from something well made, with love and devotion.
We discovered cocoa in Peru and we fell in love with its different varieties and flavor notes that impregnated its offspring. There we met Gonzalo and Emerson, and together, we tasted almost all the cocoas available under that ancient sun. Full of cream flavor, flowers, earthy smell, vanilla flavor, coffee, almonds... We tasted the varieties of fine aroma, the criollo cocoa, the chuncho, the Amazonian forastero ... and we were enamored by it.
In the Peruvian Amazon basin, we created a cocoa garden of Eden. A gateway to all the magic we fell in love with, Hacienda Umbelina. A safeguarded nursery in which to grow a wide and wild variety of cocoa — coming full circle, creating one of the best chocolates in the world. Controlling every single detail of production, so the final product is a wonderful and irreproducible experience. Each bar, each capsule, a unique cosmos of taste.
We have been actively involved with the local Shipibo communities and have created opportunities for nearly fifty women and men who have been accompanying an exciting project that enables them to commune with nature and their origins.
A chocolate that not only makes the tree-to-bar concept its own, but revolutionizes it, and turns it into a real tree-to-you.
