The last island of note in the eastern region of the Solomon archipelago, the remote island of Makira - with its rich volcanic soil - provides us with a cocoa bean that has a rich and complex flavour enhanced by gentle hints of grapefruit, raisin and caramel overtones. (65g bar)


Not only does Lucy, our farmer own the land herself, but she also exclusively hires women to help produce the cocoa, too.

Due to the money she raises with selling super-quality cocoa directly to us, her two daughters have been able to go to university in Australia, aspiring to come back to the farm to take over the family business due to them seeing how sustainable and rewarding cocoa production can be.

Makira is the most Easterly of the main island group in the Solomon Islands and is abundant in tropical fruits. The island has one 10 km road going from the main village, past our farmer Lucy’s farm, to the other outlying village. There is a grass landing strip, which is perhaps the best route to Makira due to saltwater crocodiles taking up residency along the coastline.

Cocoa mass, cocoa butter, unrefined sugar, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin.

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!
