Why we choose to use Callebaut Chocolate
Wanting to produce the best possible chocolates we knew we had to start with the best foundations by using finest chocolate we could source.
After sampling many different chocolate bean to chocolate producers from all over the world we decided to use a Belgium produced line of couverture chocolate from Callebaut.
The range we use is derived from a mix of West African bean producers which gives the chocolate a full bodied flavour without the inherited flavours or aromas from any specific region. As the same as Wine, Cocoa plants inherit flavours & aromas from the soils and conditions in which they are grown.
We incoropate our own destintive flavours in to our chocolates this range was the best choice as to not cloud the flavours we wish to infuse.
Along side of these reasons one of the best features of purchasing this range of chocolate is that it also gives back to the community in which the beans are grow and harvested via the work of Cocoa Horizons.
