Pure Origin chocolate  is made from some of the finest cacao beans in the world. Keeping the single origin bars pure and natural without adding any unnecessary ingredients helps to bring out the full flavour of the bean, giving you a unique taste sensation.

The beans are ethically sourced from individual areas, meaning you can enjoy their chocolate with a clearer conscience. The single origins of the beans give each chocolate its own distinct flavour, from the citrus and zesty notes of the Grenada to the rich Morello cherry of the Colombia.

With a range of styles and cacao strengths, Pure Origin chocolates can compliment any situation. Whether you enjoy a piece of the Madagascar with a glass of fruity red wine, or letting the Colombia melt in your mouth with a hot espresso.
