Learnt the fun of exporting cacao from Malaysia

Arduous, but worth every effort. Thanks to Geoffrey, Andy, Rizman and the Malaysian Cocoa Board and Customs in Kuching for all their patience and understanding.

Why a guillotine, you ask? Quality control made easy

 
 

Drove to Paris for the 20th ANNIVERSARY of Salon du Chocolat. Finally ate a Praluline.

 

IF YOU MISSED OUR STORY...

What's a Praluline?

Handmade new machines to upscale the mini-micro batch to micro batch chocolate.

Getting back from Malaysia was go-go-go, we wanted to upscale the mini-micro batch (perfect for experiments) to a micro batch. We previously researched different equipments, ways to make it affordable, scalable and easy to manage.

There’s a lot of information out there, we dug deep and we’re proud to show you the way we currently make bean to bar chocolate. If you’ve not already read how we process or watched our latest video about the The Fascinating Process of micro-batch Bean to Bar Chocolate please take a look.

That wraps up 2014!

 

We're receiving a new 10 litre tilting wet grinder from India, big thanks to David, Earth Loaf for helping us.

And we've got the most exciting part coming soon, we will launch our first bean to bar chocolate. We're working closely with our friends Vish Purgass Studios and Adam Gill for the packaging to give you the fullest bean to bar chocolate experience.

We'll keep you posted regularly.

In the meantime, Happy Celebrations for the New Year!

Bo & Thomas

In 2015
