A white chocolate like you’ve never tasted before. This is made with 34% cocoa butter, pressed by Askinosie using beans from the Philippines, along with organic cane sugar and goat’s milk. Rather than being sickly sweet, it has a creamy, tangy flavour and the organic pistachio’s add a lovely crunch.
Cocoa content: 34% Origin: Davao, Philippines Beans: Davao Made in: Springfield, Missouri, USA
Shawn Askinosie left a successful career as a criminal attorney to make bean-to-bar chocolate.
Having built the business from scratch, the greatest opportunity and challenge has been weaving social responsibility into everything they do. Askinosie uses an innovative ‘Stake in the Outcome’ model to work directly with farmers in Ecuador, Honduras, the Philippines and Tanzania, and gives each farmer a share in the profits of Askinosie.
At the end of their 70 step chocolate making process, Askinosie hand wrap their bars, with a picture of one the farmers they do business with on the front. The bar is then tied with string recycled from their cocoa bean shipping bags. See more
