Single Origin

Chocolate Blocks made using cacao beans from one specific place.

From a

Single Source

The term 'Single origin' refers to chocolate that is made using cacao beans from one specific place or 'origin', and is often linked to a specific variety of cacao, native to the region. To taste single-origin chocolate is an engaging, sensory-driven experience.

Made with cocoa beans sourced from a specific country, plantation, or small family-owned farm, single-origin bars are full of distinctive flavours. Due to factors such as terroir (soil, climate, rainfall and altitude) and manufacturing methods, the differences between these bars can vary greatly.
