Mild cocoa notes slowly reveal floral, citrus and a lingering earthy flavor.  Go ahead, sit back and take a journey to the rainforest in this gourmet chocolate experience.

Dark with no burnt taste due to the low roast of the cacao (roasting cacao mildly ensures higher antioxidant value).  The quality of this chocolate is very apparent in the first bite of your dessert. Take your recipe to the next level.  

Vegan Dark Chocolate Ingredients: Cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, GMO FREE soy emulsifier and vanilla. All ingredients are GMO Free and Vegan. We pay extra to buy cacao ingredients audited by quality control agencies.

In the jungles around wild growing cacao trees there are exotic leopards living a happy life alongside the trees. In chocolate folklore dating all the way back to the ancient Maya, the leopard is the guardian of cacao. And so today the leopard continues to guard cacao. And so we honor the leopard... because it's his Rainforest too. Cacao production photos from a small plot farm below.
