A melange of golden honey and citrus top notes sing with the rich chocolate brownie depths of our Philippines cocoa. For this dark milk chocolate bar, our Mindanao Island beans have a complexity of flavour that gives those ringing top notes without drowning the creamy milk flavour. A dark milk chocolate in perfect harmony. 

Our cocoa is grown in the lush volcanic hills under a canopy of coconut palms and plantain leaves 10 degrees north of the equator.  The farmers divide the skills of harvesting and fermenting, resulting in this exquisite dark milk chocolate.

"The depth of joy this bar brought is hard to translate into words" Annalisa Barbieri, The Guardian (70g bar)

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!
