Rich volcanic chocolate thins.  Situated on the most southerly of the larger islands of the Philippines – and in the “Goldilocks zone” 10 degrees either side of the equator – the cocoa farmers of Mindanao Island have the ideal combination of tropical rainforest and volcanic soil. It is perfect for growing a cocoa bean with a distinctive chocolate flavour complimented by layers of citrus, honey and caramel notes. Hand packed into boxes of 25 thins, this makes the perfect gift, enjoyed after dinner, or best of all, a gift to self. (150g/25 delicious thins).

As commercial cocoa is relatively recent in the Philippines, it is still made up of multi-crop small holders where they grow cocoa alongside a whole host of crops, mainly for the local market – think pineapple, coconut, and yams. There are more cooperatives in the Philipps as each farmer doesn’t produce enough beans to build a fermentary.

Mindanao is the southernmost main island in the Philippines group, just inside the “Goldilocks zone” 10 degrees either side of the equator. It is Firetree’s only cocoa origin North of the Equator. The cocoa we buy directly from our farmer grows on the slopes between Mount Apo and Davao city in the fertile tropical rainforest-like conditions.

So many things to love about this chocolate – the taste, the packaging, the lovely stories about where it comes from. Have bought a couple of the gift boxes for friends and family too!
