Our Amazing Alto Beni

Our Alto Beni 68% is made from direct trade cacao grown in the Alto Beni region of Bolivia. The cacao is harvested and box fermented before being shipped to our small factory in Emu Heights.

The beans are lightly roasted, winnowed and then placed in our vintage melanguer (see image below) where two large granite rollers crush the nibs, releasing their cocoa butter, until they become liquor or chocolate mass.

From here the chocolate is conched to develop mouthfeel, tempered and poured into molds.

You can view the entire process from our cafe and it smells divine!
