Chocolate lovers – we now have Willie’s Cacao in the shop – the maker of some of the best chocolate in the world.
Willie Harcourt-Cooze is the UK’s pioneer of ‘bean to bar’ chocolate. As the owner of a one thousand acre cacao farm in the Venezuelan cloud forest, Willie buys direct from the farmers, roasts them in antique ball roasters and makes them into the most superior chocolate using just raw cane sugar and natural cocoa butter –no vanilla or soya lecithin – nothing that gets in the way of the flavour of the bean. Single estate cacaos are like fine wines, they all taste completely different.
We have a selection of bars – Peruvian Black, with its complex notes of nuts and coffee; Venezuelan Black; Rio Caribe Gold, Trincheras Gold, a rich, nutty smoothness, as well as Chef’s Drops – that cooks just love as they take away all the hassle and simply melt into your cakes and desserts.
We urge you to try this most exceptional adventure in taste.
