Each and every morning, the chocolate master carefully roasts fresh cacao beans whose delicious aroma gently awakens the residents of the town. Cacao beans are slowly rolled and conched to release their extraordinary bouquet of fruits, nuts and flowers in a delicately finished chocolate bar
The Forager collection is a madly experimental and multilayered. At first, we deconstruct all ingredients and then combine them back to form one of a kind chocolate bars with ‘patented’ flavours.With this collection, we have created new way of introducing flavours into the chocolate by using locally sourced and intense ingredients refined into chocolate bar for them to naturally extend the complex chemical flavour composition of cacao.
Our biodynamic apiary is found next to the forest where the bees gather their exquisite nectar. Due to its unique location, the honey and pollen are dark amber in colour and thick with notes of the mossy earth and her flavours. These notes create an unusual alchemy with chocolate. The intricate process of combining honey with chocolate puts this recipe among the most technologically sophisticated recipes around. And, most importantly, it represents the terroir I come from.
