The Chocolate Life

Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

Here is a list of bean to bar makers. It is not a list of ethical companies or artisan chocolate makers. It simply means that these companies all make their chocolate all the way from raw cacao beans to the molded bar. This list is the result of an ongoing project conducted at 70%, where members maintain a discussion and make attempts to verify that each company on this list actually makes chocolate from raw beans. The reason for verification is that sometimes companies wish to sound hip and trendy and so they claim to be bean bar. The idea is to have some type of definitive list going of who actually makes chocolate from the bean for RETAIL (not solely commercial, industrial, sale).

You forgot to include Ki Xocolatl.

 

Ki Xocolatl is a bean-to-bar manufacturer in Merida, Mexico.  They also grow their own cacao in a vast plantation in the heart of the Yucatan peninsula.  And they have an office in New York to distribute their chocolates.

This is their website: www.ki-xocolatl.com.  This is the site for the Plantacion Tikul: www.ecomuseodelcacao.com.  You can get their chocolates from Amazon.com.  And if you are interested in wholesale, you can contact them by email at info@casa-catherwood.com or mexicanchocolatecompany@gmail.com.

Hi Louis,

What is the relationship between Ki Xocolatl and CACEP, a chocolate manufacturer in Tabasco?  Is Ki Xocolatl subcontracting CACEP for the manufacturing?  FYI, I live in Battery Park City, so I will try to attend the Battery Place Market tasting on April 3.
