Fine Craft Drinking Chocolate - Solomon Islands
Free shipping on every New Zealand order over $30
We're proud to introduce a new origin of drinking chocolate. Sourced from Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, this exquisitely cared for cacao makes a divinely rich and satisfying drinking chocolate with hues of caramel and toasted nuts.
Our drinking chocolate is made from ground 70% single origin craft chocolate, not from cocoa powder. It's delicious with water, or oat, coconut, soy, nut, goat’s or cow’s milk. Our favourite is water.
The drinking chocolate is packaged in a home compostable resealable pouch.
Labelling note: we are still finalising the label design, so until labels are ready all pouches will be sent with plain labels.
From the July 2021 vintage. Please note the batch number you receive will differ from the one pictured.
Ingredients: Cacao Beans & Organic Cane Sugar. No added cacao butter, lecithin, vanilla or cocoa powder.
Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free and 100% Plant Based.
Diana from Cathliro works directly with over two-hundred farming families from villages in Central Guadalcanal, primarily working with women (70% of farmers are women). The farmers are paid cash upon weighing of the wet beans in the village. Cathliro then takes the beans into their location in Honiara and ferments and sun-dries the beans. Cathliro works directly with the villages in giving back and in educating the farmer families on tree management, health, farm management, saving schemes, sanitation and how to use cocoa as a food and sell their cacao locally in the villages.
The Cacao Ambassador, based in NZ, works with Diana of Cathliro in ensuring the highest quality in each step, from pruning, to fermentation, to sun-drying, and is a bridge to chocolate makers, ensuring that the on the ground care is taking place with the farmers.
