Mackenzie Rivers makes chocolate with the most passion of anyone we’ve seen. She does EVERYTHING herself, by hand (where possible), and you can tell from the moment you hold these bars they are something special.

Mackenzie started with $50 of beans and a borrowed roaster, because she believes “Chocolate is not just a flavor to crave, but a food group. A stand-in for the day when your best friend is MIA, a breakfast food, a bartering tool when words are not enough, a currency of kindness, a fine and lovely thread wrapping round the world.”

Mackenzie ran a crowd funding campaign to enable her to expand and buy a new stone grinder – it didn’t reach it’s goal but that won’t stop her!
