Why is gourmet Swiss Chocolate Famous?

Swiss chocolate is famous for being made from mild roast cacao, resulting in a light flavor. The 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 environmentally friendly grown and ethical sourced 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.

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. 

Swiss Cooking and Baking Chocolate

Switzerland is a land well known for exclusive banking, premium watches and beautiful gold ingots is also famous for premium chocolate. From this nestled land, a confederation of ideals, there is a core value of quality and refinement. This attitude of not accepting ersatz goods is pervasive in all aspects including cooking and the ingredients used in cooking. Swiss food is just like all other aspects of the culture: clean, basic, delicate and superior. This delicate style of cooking is to enhance flavors and to balance the nuances. Swiss coffee for example is best described as mild roast. Swiss chocolate is similar. The choice of cacao varieties in this chocolate is a subtle and nuanced combination. This graceful chocolate naturally lends itself to intricate cooking and baking. Cooking with this chocolate is a snap due to the mild flavor that allows the true essence of the dessert intent to showcase itself; meaning it is great for flavoring and ganache because it has a mild flavor. Swiss chocolate is easy to add flavors that come through with a clean and pure taste. Delicate flavors like blueberry or mandarin orange, raspberry liqueur or hazelnut pair nicely with this chocolate. Not too bitter, but just dark enough to be enjoyed as a bittersweet chocolate, this is the best choice for frosting a cake.
