Heirloom Bean to Bar
RAW - UNROASTED
Our latest range of chocolate is Bean to Bar from heirloom beans. These varieties have been lost, forgotten and found.
With amazing eco conservation and indigenous supporting projects our dedicated partners have rediscovered these sacred treasures and share them with Coco Caravan.
Because these cacao beans are so unique we choose not to roast them, we work them gently into rich chocolate that is free of additives and refined sugars. This way you can fully enjoy the depth of character and the lingering taste notes.
