"Monte Grande" is the name of the farm where this cacao is lovingly grown. Located in the pacific coastal region of Costa Sur, Guatemala, the farm was bought for 6 gold coins in 1867 by the family that still owns the land today. A beautiful image... But why does this matter? You see, fine chocolate is grown to be eaten and savoured for its unique flavour - flavours that differ depending on where the chocolate is grown. It's what makes craft chocolate so enticing. Each region will have its intricacies, each year will taste slightly different, and - depending on how the chocolate is fermented and roasted - each batch will taste subtly unique.
This bar is intense and can be savoured slowly, so as to notice the flavours as they reveal themselves.

Goldie Craft Chocolate believes that as conscious consumers, we do not need to compromise our ethics, in order to experience the pleasure chocolate brings us! What chocolate provides for us is truly unique - a memory, a moment of celebration, a comforting solace. It transforms in our mouths, satisfying so many of our senses. However, underneath all of this deliciousness, lies a history of chocolate manufacturing that is uncertain and unethical for the majority of the worlds five million cacao farmers. Our aim is to make great chocolate, but to do so by putting the change we wish to see worldwide, into practice. Each bar is lovingly crafted in small batches from transparently traded whole cacao beans, and mixed with organic ingredients wherever possible.
