Not for the faint of heart or the chocolate tourist, this is the pure bean in bar form. And nothing else. No sugar. No flavouring. Nothing to interfere with the rich flavours inherent in the beans themselves. Cross this line and you may just find yourself in chocolate nirvana. This package contains bars made with beans, and nothing else, from the Costa Esmeraldas Plantation in Ecuador.

About the Maker
Made in Victoria, B.C. by Taylor Kennedy. Founder of Sirene Chocolate, Taylor has been a globetrotter for most of his life. He has worked with The National Geographic Society in photography, writing and photo editing for more than 18 years now. His work brought him to remote countries with rich agricultural heritage where he began to make the connection between food and the growing demand for ethically sourced products. As a specialty chocolate maker, Taylor is able to oversee production from the cacao bean to the bars on the shelves and feel good about each of the steps along the way.
