Casa Cacao – chocolate love from Girona
We are very pleased that people who are so busy and know about taste also share our love for chocolate & cocoa, and want to spread it further. Because it is so special that there is so much to taste purely due to the origin and processing of the cocoa, but also because attention to the quality of the cocoa automatically leads to a higher price for the cocoa farmer. The vast majority of cocoa in the world is sold as a bulk product for a low price that cocoa farmers cannot live on. For cocoa origin, a price is paid that is fortunately much higher. Paying for quality & a decent income for the cocoa farmer. Two sides of the same coin. And in our opinion no more than logical.
Chocolate made by people from a 3 star restaurant? That must be the best in the world, the best in our assortment? Well, we are already spoiled with a lot of (world) top chocolates in our range… We hope that this chocolate will reach many more people, and that even more people will discover how incredibly diverse chocolate can be. How nice it is to taste the differences. How a chocolate can taste slightly different per year and even per cocoa harvest. And in any case how completely different it is from the sugar bomb bars from the supermarket. But we can think of a few brands (Soma, Friis Holm for example) that we appreciate more across the board for the time being. Not surprising, Casa Cacao has only just started. In a year during a pandemic. And starting with a high overall quality and a lot of attention to detail is no mean feet. We are happy to sell these chocolates. More good chocolate, more attention to good cocoa. Hooray, for that!
