Our fascination with chocolate is accentuated by a profound obsession with its provenance and preparation. All our chocolate products are handmade from the highest quality single origin cacao resulting in rich complex flavors not commonly found in chocolate.
We choose only the finest selection of Criollo cacao beans from all over the world. What the fine Arabica bean is to coffee, the even finer and rarer Criollo bean is to chocolate. Criollo cacao makes up less than 10% of worldwide chocolate production, and as such, is highly sought after by connoisseurs. Chocolate made from Criollo beans has a distinct reddish color, and an equally distinctive complex taste, which can include flavors of caramel, nuts, vanilla and tobacco.
Only the finest, seasonal and natural ingredients are selected to make our chocolates. We source local ingredients such as fresh berries and fruits, and travel the world to find the best exotic ingredients each culture has to offer. This includes European butter, English lavender, Tahitian vanilla, Florida lemons, Japanese matcha tea and Puerto Rican rum. These ingredients are slowly infused into our chocolates as their freshness is essential to the complexity of their flavor.
Our chocolates are all handmade by passionate chocolate artisans. Their startling creativity and gift for harmonizing flavors have been the source of continuous innovation in our chocolate-making process and techniques.
The chocolate and natural ingredients are combined into ganache and tempered to remove air and ensure maximum freshness. The ganache is then settled overnight before being cut into bite-sized pieces. Each ganache is then coated in pure dark chocolate before each piece receives its signature cocoa-based design. Our designs are all paintings created by artisanal, culinary artists. Each design tells its own story.
