___________

Origin: L'Esterre Estate, St. Andrew, Grenada, West Indies

Two Ingredients: organic cocoa beans, organic cane sugar (+ a dash maldon salt for 72% Sea Salt)

Our Process: Why does our chocolate have such a unique flavour? Because our trees and terroir are unique as we only source from our farm, looking after our trees using regenerative methods, completely chemical free. Our processing is also wildly different from that of commercial cocoa. 

We minimally process our cocoa, and carefully monitor our fermentation, drying and grinding to maintain cocoa's natural flavanols, polyphenols, nutrients and flavour. We will never alkalise our cocoa which is known to destroy these unique flavanols. The only ingredient we add is raw organic cane sugar and a little bit of Maldon salt (in our 72% + Sea Salt) to draw out different flavour profiles. 

On the other end, commercial, mass-produced, highly processed chocolate is alkalized and hydrolyzed and contains a multitude of emulsifiers and additives as it has been designed for efficiency and scale. These additions highly impact the bioavailability of flavanols and polyphenols in the cocoa.

Health benefits of cocoa: 

Food can be thy medicine, and dark chocolate may be a noteworthy example when consumed in moderation. Dark chocolate is thought to: 

  • Supports cardiovascular health: cocoa flavanols support healthy blood pressure as it contains Flavan-3-ols. Cocoa also helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels as it resists the absorption of biosynthesis of cholesterol by decreasing the number of cholesterol receptors. 
  • Stimulates brain function: dark chocolate is believed to improve the blood flow in both the heart and brain, meaning vital oxygen and nutrients get delivered to your organs and tissues. The different chemical compounds present in dark chocolate stimulate cognitive function and positively modulates mood swings. 
  • Contains iron & magnesium: cocoa is the highest plant-based source of iron, and is also a source of magnesium which is needed for optimum muscle and nerve function. 
  • Anti-inflammatory effects: Our cocoa is rich in polyphenols and antioxidants because of our minimal processing. This modulates the glycemic response, directly influencing insulin resistance and reducing the risk of diabetes. 

    Handmade: All our chocolate is tempered in small batches and so some may not appear that exact "perfect" button shape.  

    Please note: May contain traces of milk, nuts and gluten.

    Joy in a pot

    Despite my strong desire not to share these are so good you want everyone else to taste then. Not one single negative comment from my work colleagues, even the I don’t like dark chocolate one. Thank you

    Fabulous chocolate buttons

    I have tried all three types and the 85% are my favourites. All of them are delicious and amazingly smooth given the high percentage of cocoa.

    Some of the nicest chocolate I have tried

    All the chocolates were gorgeous, with the 72% being my personal favourite. Packaging was lovely and good quality. If you enjoy craft chocolate I would highly recommend this as a gift for yourself or the chocolate connoisseurs in your life.
