Bean-To-Bar

Know every step of making chocolate by our Bean-To-Bar process

Bean-To-Bar

When a chocolate is made from bean-to-bar it means that every step of making chocolate is meticulously done by the chocolatier. We buy properly fermented and dried cocoa beans from very select organic and fair-trade cocoa growers from around the world. Each of these cocoa beans has its unique terroir and that is what we work to bring out in every origin and flavor we offer.

The steps in bean-to-bar chocolate production are : -

Sorting

Sorting

The beans are first sorted to remove any poor-quality cocoa beans that are not meant to make it in our chocolate.

Roasting

Roasting

The beans are then roasted to develop the flavor profile of the cocoa beans. The temperature and time of the roast can greatly affect the flavor of the finished chocolate.

Cracking

Cracking

After the beans are cooled from the roasting, they are then cracked to the shell the beans. This prepares the beans for winnowing.

Winnowing

Winnowing

The beans are then winnowed which removes the shell from the actual beans, which will then be in little pieces referred to as the Cacao Nibs.

Grinding & Refining

Grinding & Refining

The cacao nibs are now ready for grinding. Grinding breaks the nibs down in a paste. After a paste has been made, which would also be referred to as both Cacao Mass or Cacao Liquor, we are now ready to add sugar. Refining will take place until the micron size cacao nibs are small enough to be smooth & creamy chocolate.

Conching

Conching

This further develops the finished flavor of chocolate. The level of conching will determine how much volatile acids remain in chocolate and can minimize the amount of bitterness chocolate has.

Tempering

Tempering

Tempering of a chocolate makes the chocolate stable and gives the chocolate the shine that is used to give in a good chocolate.

Pouring & Cooling

Pouring & Cooling

Once tempered, the chocolate is poured into our chocolate molds and these molds are then vibrated to remove air bubbles and then cooled thereafter.
