The bean-to-bar chocolate movement is spreading around the world. But what does bean-to-bar actually mean? To make it short: The bean-to-bar producer takes the cocoa beans direct from the people who grew them and produces a bar containing one kind of bean alone. For me it's all about the passionate artisans who are pushing that movement, turning the chocolate making process into a craft.
A few picks of bean-to-bar chocolate makers in Europe:
- Duffy's Chocolate UK
- Edelmond DE
- Hotel Chocolat UK
- Wilkie's Chocolate Ireland
