Chef's Chocolate: Bulk Single Origin Cocoa Bean To Bar

Chef's Chocolate: Bulk Single Origin Cocoa Bean To Bar


Our Chef’s Chocolate is specifically designed for the culinary trade professionals (hotels, restaurants, pastry + chocolate shops, etc.) who are looking for an alternative to commonly available industrial chocolate thus seeking to create a truly unique and distinct product to their establishment. Our Chef’s Chocolate is produced entirely in our small artisan chocolate factory from Single Origin, Direct Trade, often Certified Organic cocoa beans. Cocoa bean-to-bar chocolate-making, on an artisan basis, is a long and painstaking process with numerous steps. We sort, roast, crack, winnow, grind, conch, temper and mould our chocolate in small batches directly from premium cocoa beans.

As Canada's only artisan science-based cocoa bean-to-bar chocolate-makers, we work closely with the University of BC in Vancouver on various research projects relating to the science of chocolate-making within Wild Sweets® micro-batch laboratory settings and small-scale machinery. For an overview of the complete process, see the bean-to-bar chocolate-making section of our website at this link.

We offer ‘seasonal’ single origin 70% dark chocolate and our Chef’s Chocolate is perfect for most recipes where a dark (70% and up) chocolate is called for. It is very low in added cocoa butter (< 2%), has no vanilla, no lecithin and thus also works for savoury applications. Currently, we have the following chocolate option/s available including; 

  • Tanzania: Kokoa Kamili is a cooperative of about 1,500 smallholder farmers located in the Morogoro region of Tanzania that conducts its own fermentation and drying yielding consistent high quality beans, which tend to be a mix of Trinitario and Criollo with notes of cherry, coffee and lemon.

  • Ecuador: Camino Verde is a fermentary near the Guayaquil region of Ecuador, which produces consistent high quality beans through applied science in cocoa fermentation and new-age methods of post harvest processing. Camino Verde is a Neo-Nacional with rounded notes of chocolate, almond and sweet spice.
