FROM BEAN-TO-BAR CRAFT CHOCOLATE
We've partnered with an award-winning, master chocolatier in the creation of Wild West Chocolate. Guy Debbas, has forged a reputation as one of the most innovative and experienced chocolatiers in the United States. He has spent decades dedicated to the art of exquisite chocolate and is hailed as a leader in the industry and for his delicious ingenuity.
Wild West artisan chocolates are hand-crafted using a long process of micro-batch chocolate making; whereas mass produced chocolatiers melt pre-made chocolate to make chocolate confections. While industrial chocolate tastes flat and lacks nuance and depth, bean to bar chocolate contains a multitude of flavors.
Our master chocolatier controls where he sources each ingredient, making single origin chocolate that allows the complexity of the cacao to be showcased. Our cacao beans are sustainably harvested in Peru. And our sweetness doesn't and won’t ever come from refined sugar or even from the latest fad sugar-substitute claiming: no sugar added. It comes only from organic fruit, because… well… fruit is simply better for you.
Through our relationships with cocoa growers, we can trace the cocoa in any bar of chocolate back to the farm from which it originated. Our single-origin cacao beans come from a cooperative of farmers who grow and process the cocoa beans sustainably and organically in the Amazon rainforest area of the Satipo Province of Peru. This bean-to-bar approach demonstrates our commitment to social and economic issues and ensures excellence in quality control. Understanding the specific journey of a cocoa bean means knowing about the great care and effort that farmers put into growing their cocoa and how important this is to ensure the chocolate we make tastes great!
All of our ingredients are carefully screened and third party-verified to ensure they meet our standards for social and environmental sustainability.
We subscribe to the most stringent definition of organic. Organic ingredients are better for the health of you, farmers, animals and the environment since there aren’t any added synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers used to produce them. All the ingredients in our chocolate come from organic cultivation and nothing artificial. You can simply enjoy Wild West chocolate knowing that the ingredients are produced organically.
