TO'AK, Quito, Ecuador

To’ak exclusively produces small-batch editions of single-origin Ecuadorian dark chocolate, with an emphasis on terroir, heirloom genetics, and cask-aging. To’ak prides itself on being the first tree-to-bar chocolate maker to comprehensively explore the science and the art of aging dark chocolate. To’ak’s mission is to transform the way that the world experiences dark chocolate, elevating its making and tasting onto the level of vintage wine and aged whisky.

  • Known as the most expensive chocolate in the world, To’ak Chocolate was born in 2007 from the minds of Jerry Toth and Carl Schweizer.
  • Made from bean to bar in Ecuador, To’ak Chocolate is sourced exclusively from cacao pods that match the morphological and color profile of heirloom Nacional cacao referenced from DNA testing. This cacao was awarded the Heirloom designation from the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Fund in 2016.
  • From the exclusive quality of the chocolate to its exquisite packaging, To’ak Chocolate offers the most luxurious craft chocolate experience from purchasing to unwrapping, and finally savoring. In their most iconic chocolate bars, connoisseurs are presented with a precious wooden box, tasting instructions and tools.

  • To’ak has been the continuous recipient of press releases, media exposure and dedicated articles for its bold price tag, always justified by craftsmanship, ethical sourcing, high-quality raw materials, long ageing processes and unparallel packaging.
  • To’ak cask aged Chocolate bars are aged in barrels of whisky, tequila, sherry or bourbon, so that the cocoa nibs can absorb the enchanting aromas of these liquors without the alcohol.
  • To’ak works hand-in-hand with a small group of cacao growers in Piedra de Plata and pays them the highest price per pound in all of Ecuador.

The To'ak range

Formerly known as Art Series

To’ak has never been satisfied with simply making chocolate. Masters Series is a collaboration with prominent Ecuadorian artists. We're thrilled to introduce To'ak's second Masters Series edition—their most valuable chocolate to date. In collaboration with esteemed Ecuadorian artist Enriquestuardo, they have created this rare edition of dark chocolate to connect to Ecuador’s ancient traditions while celebrating a treasure that transcends time. This is their most sublime chocolate expression yet. Their 78% Duality Blend has matured for eight years, drawing out a delicate yet complex flavor profile of buttery caramel, plum honey, and cashew. The chocolate is enclosed in an elegant wooden box made of sustainably sourced Spanish Elm wood.
