TANZANIA

notes of kiwi, crème fraîche, honeysuckle

Brian LoBue’s and Simran Bindra’s social enterprise, Kokoa Kamili, buys freshly harvested, unfermented cacao beans from local smallholder farms and ferments them in a centralized facility. The resulting flavorful cocoa fetches a premium price that makes its way back to cacao growers.

Cocoa bar and nibs and sugar

THOUGHTFULLY SOURCED

TWO INGREDIENTS

Flavorful, well-fermented cocoa beans and organic cane sugar. That’s all. With only two ingredients, there’s nowhere to hide. Our Chocolate Makers carefully calibrate each step of production to coax the best flavors from every batch of beans.

“Dandelion roasts and grinds beans from a single farm or cooperative at a time. It’s a winemaker’s approach, and each bar is as distinct from the next as a Chianti is from a Barolo.”

“Each of Dandelion’s single-origin bars is unique to its terroir—the Dominican is nutty and bright, the Liberian earthy and umami-rich—and helps sustain the inhabitants (feathered and not) of the land.”

“Instead of using additives and strange, unpronounceable ingredients to alter the flavor of his chocolate, [Dandelion Chocolate] relies on the distinct taste of the beans.”

“At Dandelion Chocolate’s bean-to-bar factory and café, you’ll find single-source chocolate bars roasted to subtle perfection.”

LONG-LASTING RELATIONSHIPS

Single Origins

We have found that good relationships are absolutely essential to procuring consistently good flavor. That’s why, year after year, we travel to each cocoa origin so we can work closely with the producers who grow, ferment, and dry the single-origin beans we source.
