Chocolarder is an artisan bean to bar chocolate maker based in Ponsanooth, Cornwall.
First the bags of beans are sorted by hand)
The chosen ones are slowly roasted, a process which ensures even roasting
Beans are removed from their shells and stoneground to fine granules,
The chocolate is then conched, and this is the true alchemy of the process
When the chocolate is finally ready, it is poured out of the conch to be matured in huge blocks for around 40 days to mature the flavour so that by the time you eat it, it simply couldn’t taste any better.
