FAQs

What does unroasted mean? Group 11 Group 11

Cacao beans are the seeds of the cacao fruit, harvested and prepared by producers at origin. Every bean has a flavor profile shaped by the soil and climate it grows in, as well as the care each producer takes in cultivating and processing it. This fruity flavor is often roasted away in favor of that classic chocolatey note. We love this fruit-forward flavor, and we make our chocolate without roasting so you can enjoy it too.

Is this chocolate vegan? Group 11 Group 11

You bet. All our bars are 100% vegan. Some dark chocolates still contain milk powder, but ours do not. Instead, we make a couple vegan "milk style" bars with oats and coconut.

What does this chocolate taste like? Group 11 Group 11

Every recipe we make is inspired by the unique flavors of whatever bean we’re working with. If you’re curious about a specific flavor, check out the flavor page and the reviews! If you still need help, feel free to email us.

How do you ship chocolate when it's hot outside? Group 11 Group 11

Don't fret, we check the weather before mailing every order. If it's going to be hotter than 70 degrees, we use insulation and ice packs to ensure you receive your chocolate in perfect condition!
