One of the most magical things about single-origin, two-ingredient chocolate is the intensity of flavor in every square. To appreciate the varied aromas of small-batch chocolate fully, we recommend tasting bars side by side.

With this tasting set, we wanted to create an experience of sampling and comparing several origins, just as we share with guests who visit our factories. Tasting chocolate, like tasting wine, is a great way to develop your palate and hunt for the distinctive flavors of cocoa beans that have been fermented, dried, and roasted to highlight their differences. It’s delicious and a lot of fun!

This beautifully wrapped set includes three two-ounce chocolate bars from some of our favorite origins, plus our own in-house tasting guide to help you appreciate the specific flavor notes of each bar. If you're like us, you'll love the range of creamy, nutty, fruity, and floral flavors featured in this collection.

notes of fresh strawberry, honey, and cheesecake

Maya Mountain Cacao (MMC) is a social enterprise established in order to connect small-scale cacao growers in Belize with the international specialty-cocoa market. MMC currently buys from over 400 farmers, a majority of whom have been suppliers for more than two years.

notes of chocolate ganache and blueberry jam on toast

These beans come from Bertil Akesson's Bejofo Estate. After fermenting a harvest, Bertil dries the beans with an especially quick method — on concrete beds under the hot Madagascar sun — that retains intense flavors, including a hint of tangy fruitiness.

Semuliki Forest Semuliki Forest

SEMULIKI FOREST

UGANDA

notes of cacao-fruit nectar, banana, and cream cheese

Latitude Trade Company (LTC) works with Ugandan smallholder producers to bring local products to market. Semuliki Forest cocoa is grown by roughly 1,000 organically certified regional farmers, 53 percent of whom are women.

Ethical Sourcing

Ethical Sourcing

Here at Dandelion, we not only want to work with partners who produce good beans, but also with those who share similar values around transparency, and who seek to maintain long-term partnerships. We do our best to live up to the trust producers put in us to represent them well — not only via the chocolate we make from their beans, but also by ensuring that people who enjoy our chocolate understand the hard work that our farmer and producer partners do to make amazing cocoa. (We aim to work with people who care as much about producing great beans as we care about making great chocolate.)

We visit our producers as often as possible to maintain our relationships, and to stay up to date on operations at origin. Our purchase prices are not determined based on the commodity market, but upon prices that producers with whom we work believe are appropriate. Often our prices end up being several times the market price.
