RAAKA Brooklyn, New York, USA
Raaka is devoted to making uncommonly delicious chocolate that captures the brighter, bolder, and fruitier side of cacao. That's why they make every bar from scratch, with unroasted cacao beans, sourced from trusted and admired growers. The unique flavor of Raaka's unroasted chocolate is part place, part process. Each bar is crafted in celebration of each cacao origin's unique character.
All Raaka chocolate is Organic, NON-GMO certified, gluten-, soy-, and dairy free, Vegan and 'Transparent Trade'.
Raaka is available from stock: lead-time is 1-3 days.
In a former warehouse in Brooklyn, New York two young guys make progressive chocolate.
In the past few years the number of bean-to-bar makers has risen fast. In 2010 Ryan Cheney and Nate Hodge were daring enough to start their own chocolate brand and next to this they had the courage to put traditional recipes to the test. Today they make price winning chocolates.
Cheney took a year off to learn how to make chocolate. Together with Hodge he found a method to turn unroasted (virgin) cocoa into their own Raaka bars. Raaka never stops pioneering. They will mature cocoa in old Whiskey barrels or combine chocolate with the flavour of Chinese Chai: the boundaries of traditional flavours get tested. You can find the little factory on Tripadvisor or Yelp: They’re always open for public.
Raaka also translates boldness to packaging and makes a perfect fit for counter sales or as a special gift.
