As I review chocolate bars I make note of whether a company is a "bean to bar" company or a "fondeur". I'd like to use this thread to ask whether certain companies are fondeurs or b2b. I want to be clear the I use the term "fondeur" as purely a descriptive term that Clay suggested to differentiated these companies from bean to bar makers. I don't intend this term to have any derogatory connotations; it is meant to be descriptive not qualitative.
It would help if we do a little homework first, though. First, check the TCL "Chocolate Maker" database
to see if the company is bean to bar. There are a few fondeurs listed there too. Second, check any websites for information about the company in question.
I've attached my list of Bean to bar makers and Fondeurs as it has more listed than the database at TCL.
