Lucid Chocolatier – Cusco 86%


“The final chocolate in our collection is absurdly smooth and complex due to its origin. The darkest feature in the Purist collection owes its lack of bitterness to the unique growing climate of the beans. Within high altitudes in the South Peruvian jungle dwell passionate cacao farmers working tirelessly in isolation to produce acutely high-quality beans.”

Johnty Tatham started Lucid Chocolatier in December 2020 at the age of 23! Moving from creative arts into food science he discovered the magic of chocolate as a material in which he can express artistic messages. After researching for a year he found himself back on the family farm pre-COVID and invested in some chocolate making equipment. The name "Lucid" comes from a French word which means "to give up and dedicate yourself to something". He is aiming to create ultra specialised and micro batch chocolates at the highest end of the craft chocolate market using fine Peruvian organic cacao. He's also committed to leaving a small little environmental footprint as possible, the interior wrap is compostable and the box is recyclable (spot UV logos + foil stamping with plant-based inks). All production waste is composted for use on the Lucid orchard.Listen to this fabulous interview with Johnty and family on the NZ radio. See more
