OUR CACAO


Casa Bosques Chocolates is a project based on the exploration
of the history, methods, origins and culture of chocolate.
 
Our bean to bar chocolate features the rare and very pure white bean cacao Criollo, grown by a small holder ranch in the southern region of Pichucalco, Chiapas in México. We partnered with a farm specialized in growing these heirloom cacao beans; they are thoughtfully and exclusively produced for Casa Bosques, this allows us to be involved in every step of the process. To complement our selection, we source from other origins such as Tabasco and countries like Belize and Ecuador.

Building on our foundations of a single origin, bean-to-bar practice, we are constantly experimenting with new techniques in chocolate making. The constant search for rare and unique cacao beans leads us towards purity, intriguing cacao blends and the highest quality raw ingredients available - as well as the chance to encounter local farmers and farming practices, diverse climates, and methods of fermentation. 

Each new approach to the cacao bean informs our practice, invoking the constant discovery of new harmonies in flavours aromas, and textures. By experimenting with herbs and spices, grains, seeds, medicinal plants and insects, Casa Bosques Chocolate surveys a vast pedagogy of international culinary experience in order to recount authentic stories of provenance and taste.
