Why is gourmet Swiss Chocolate Famous?

Swiss chocolate is famous for being made from mild roast cacao, resulting in a light flavor. The very smooth texture and clean melt are due to the chocolate making technique. Swiss chocolates will not have a heavy bitterness typical of other European chocolates like French chocolate. The result of Swiss technology using finely tuned chocolate machinery that follows exact procedures and temperature set points is how Swiss chocolate is made and this is why it is smooth. Recognized as a Noble Dark Chocolate in the realm of couvertures, this chocolate follows the time honored traditions of lengthy grinding producing an uncommon flavor of chocolate Switzerland is famously known to offer. Most Swiss chocolate brands sold in the USA are not made in Switzerland - our Swiss chocolate really is made in Switzerland following the scrutiny of Swiss law.

Premium Swiss Dark Chocolate Begins With Sustainable Cacao and the fair trade social movement

Our imported Swiss chocolate is sourced using UTZ Certified cacao.

Top quality cacao fruit comes from healthy Theobroma trees. From this amazing fruit we make the best tasting gourmet chocolates and cocoa powders. Our certified organic trees are given 32 square feet of space each so the tropical rainforest winds can blow around all four sides and penetrate the branches. This ensures the organic cacao fruit develops and ripens properly and with full flavor. Dedicated cocoa farmers check the trees daily to see how the cocoa pods are ripening and to "know" each tree and its needs. The farmers watch each pod. Interestingly, one fun fact the farmers shared with me is that the rainforest winds play an important part in protecting the quality of the organic cacao. Because the trees are open to receive the wind from all four directions, the cocoa pods are blown and washed clean daily by the afternoon tropical thunderstorms. This process cleans the pods and removes harmful tropical insects that may have flown onto the tree. It is a natural way of ensuring healthy cacao.

From these top notch healthy organic cacao fruit we bring to you the world of organic chocolate. Tastes have changed over the years and today the status quo isn't what we want, and most likely you don't either. That's why you are reading this right now, you are seeking more than the typical. Santa Barbara Chocolate is evolving with you in new ways of thinking. Direct flavors with a clear ingredients listing is what you want and so do we. Our organic chocolates are flavorful and memorable. When you use one of our chocolates in a recipe you'll have the tools to create new innovative desserts. A top chocolatier told us he appreciates that we offer the unique organic ingredients for him to make chocolate truffles that are clear in flavor and lasting in impression. Within our organic chocolate you'll find the natural purity of taste. Bold cocoa flavors touched by subtle nuances of the unique premium cocoa bean are the hallmarks of our range of organic chocolate and organic cocoa powder.

Swiss Chocolate made from high quality cocoa beans:

Rainforest Cacao which has Pure Flavor and is Famous for Quality

Rainforest cacao is often found under a canopy of shade trees of banana. This natural canopy helps protect the delicate cacao trees from direct sun, heavy rain or wind. As a result of this protective cover the cacao trees flourish in a healthy environment and they grow premium cocoa pods with the best tasting cacao. We have asked the Swiss chocolate maker to source indigenous cacao with pleasant floral, nutty notes when making our custom made Swiss Brand chocolate. This is a gourmet chocolate experience you'll enjoy tasting right from the package.
