To’ak chocolate is sourced exclusively from 14 cacao growers in the valley of Piedra de Plata, Ecuador, from cacao pods that match the morphological and color profile of Nacional cacao, referenced from DNA testing. Each bar (50 grams / 1.76 ounces) is presented in a handcrafted Spanish Elm wood box that is individually engraved with the bar number;
Spanish Elm is the same wood used to ferment To’ak’s cacao beans. In the middle of the bar is a single roasted cacao bean that was measured and hand-selected by the co-founders themselves. The box includes tasting utensils and a 116-page booklet that tells the story behind the sourcing of our cacao beans and provides a guide to the ritual of dark chocolate tasting. Only two ingredients are used: cacao mass and cane sugar. To’ak chocolate is USDA Organic and Fair Trade certified.
