A b3 journey of chocolate - the making of!

12/09/2016

Each Christmas, we set out to share something special with you. This year, we have collaborated with a sustainable craft chocolatier to bring you this delicate treasure enclosed.

 

Lucocoa Chocolate is London’s first bean to bar chocolate maker & these bars have been produced locally, in small batches, using only the finest, rarest, organic Criollo and Trinitario cocoa beans; beans that have been grown in farms employing the fairest practices.

 

What’s inside the bar

The only additional ingredients are cocoa butter and unrefined coconut sugar and the superfood, lucuma. Lucuma, pronounced loo-koo-ma, is a fruit grown in South America and known by the local people of Peru as “Gold of the Incas”. It’s noted for its caramel taste and nutritional benefits.

 

A journey of chocolate

For your gift, we have selected 3 chocolates from the Lucocoa range, one dark, milk and white. Each chocolate has a distinct taste inherited from the terroir, and bears the stamp of soil, microclimate and micro-organisms unique to where the beans have been grown.

 

The wrapper

 To enclose your gift, we have designed three wrappers illustrating what once would have been the coffee beans’ journey from the Caribbean to the docks of London, possibly to a riverfront warehouse like ours in Wapping.
