Bean-to-bar chocolate is chocolate without crap in it
For a long time, we were trying to find a short and simple definition of craft bean-to-bar chocolate that could serve as a conversation opener. And this one, probably, it. But, of course, there's more. To craft bean-to-bar chocolate, you first start with organic cacao beans of some sort - in other words, the beans are farmed organically. Then, once the beans are harvested, fermented and dried and you start the chocolate-making process, you don't add anything foreign or remove anything from the chocolate. This is bean-to-bar chocolate. Oh, there is a little thing we should mention: sometimes soy or sunflower lecithin derivative may be added, as a smoothening ingredient, and in a minimal amount. The ideal, however, is there is none.
Almost everyone is shocked when they find out that not all chocolate is natural like bean-to-bar chocolate and not all chocolate is made from one simple ingredient, cacao beans. Quite the contrary. It's astounding that there're about a hundred official, perfectly legal, completely unnecessary, possible additives. And additives aren't only for supermarket chocolate. Even some of the high-priced, "Belgian" chocolates will have at least ten. But bean-to-bar chocolate is so different. It may still be a microscopic speck in the global chocolate scene, but its' popularity is growing. Like the Little Engine That Could, this tiny bean-to-bar chocolate movement, and Hello Chocolate is a part of it, is slowly pulling the rest of the chocolate world up the mountain. Its' influence is outperforming its' size.

What customers say about our chocolate
One the most delicious and well balanced taste. I have enjoyed every single mouthful.
If you follow the rule of taking out the choc 15 mins before consumption from the fridge and then cutting it into slices to share, you’ll be rewarded with a smooth filling and the crunch of hazelnut within semi solid dark chocolate couverture coating. Very delicious and also rich tasting. After a full meal, I gotta say a bar is enough for 8 pax to share. Will repurchase!
My girlfriend loved the gift and I'd say it's a good value, she said all of them were delicious.
Awesomely delicious milky, crunchy pistachios in almond nougat and the chocolate melts like a snow. It was a great gift with love.
Was enjoyed by the recipient very much - thank you for a great service as usual :)
