Black Fig Chocolate

6 items left

Using the finest cacao, and a modern take on traditional European technique, we are able to fully realize the potential of the beans we source. All of our chocolate is carefully crafted from the bean in our small factory in Northern California.

DARK, RICH CALIFORNIA BLACK MISSION FIGS PAIRED WITH OUR 72% MADAGASCAR CHOCOLATE.

"The Cacao from Bertil Akesson’s plantation in the Sambirano Valley of Madagascar is hands down some of the best and most consistent in the world. It was the first cacao we ever purchased and made into chocolate and continues to be one of our favorites. Classic citrus notes are balanced with fruit and nut. This chocolate continues to improve and challenge our pallets batch after batch."

About The Maker

"DEEPLY ROOTED IN A BACKGROUND OF WOODWORKING AND BOATBUILDING, WE HAVE ALWAYS LOVED WORKING WITH OUR HANDS. THE CONCEPT OF CRAFT HAS BEEN A GUIDING PRINCIPLE IN OUR LIVES FROM THE BEGINNING. AFTER HEARING ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE YOUNG AND GROWING AMERICAN CRAFT CHOCOLATE MOVEMENT, WE WERE DRAWN TO THE COMMON THREADS WE SAW IN WORKING WITH WOOD AND CRAFTING CHOCOLATE FROM BEAN. WE BECAME FASCINATED WITH A NEW CHALLENGE AND LOVED THE IDEA OF REINVENTING THE CHOCOLATE EXPERIENCE. IN 2010 WE BOUGHT SOME SMALL-SCALE EQUIPMENT AND BEGAN MAKING CHOCOLATE.

THE MOST HANDS-ON APPROACH WE COULD TAKE WAS TO START WITH THE RAW CACAO. WE ARE ABLE TO SOURCE THE FINEST FAIRLY-TRADED CACAO AND PERFORM ALL THE STEPS IN-HOUSE TO TURN THE RAW INGREDIENTS INTO DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE, ALL IN OUR SMALL FACTORY IN EUREKA, CALIFORNIA. THIS ENTIRE PROCESS TAKES APPROXIMATELY THREE WEEKS TO COMPLETE BUT ALLOWS US TO MAKE SOME OF THE FINEST CHOCOLATE POSSIBLE. WE USE ORGANIC CACAO AND ORGANIC CANE SUGAR IN OUR CHOCOLATE. BY NOT CUTTING CORNERS OR TAKING SHORTCUTS IN OUR PROCESS WE ARE ABLE TO LEAVE OUT VANILLA, ADDITIONAL COCOA BUTTER OR OTHER EMULSIFIERS, IN HOPES OF CAPTURING AND HIGHLIGHTING THE SUBTLE FLAVOR NUANCES IN THE CACAO WE SOURCE FROM AROUND THE WORLD. WE HOPE YOU WILL GET AS MUCH ENJOYMENT EATING OUR CHOCOLATE AS WE DO MAKING IT."
