Ingredients:
Cocoa beans, cane sugar, cocoa butter.

Together with Na’Lu’Um Cocoa Institute, an association of local Maya cocoa farmers, they have delivered thousands of free saplings to these farmers and are supporting them with training and microfinance. Thanks to this initiative, about 204 cocoa producing families now have a steady, reliable source to sell their beans at a fair price and help them expand their agricultural activities to provide a better life for their families.

The post-harvest takes place in a centralised facility. The beans are fermented for 7 days in boxes made from Santa Maria wood. Once the fermentation process is complete, the beans are transported by wheelbarrow to drying tables. The beans remain on the wooden drying tables and are raked until they have reached a certain degree of appearance.

KRAK, Ermelo, the Netherlands

Krak Chocolade is created by Mark Schimmel in Ermelo, The Netherlands, about 18km from our office! Although Krak Chocolade officially launched in 2013, Mark’s journey towards chocolate making developed over many years. Mark is a talented pastry chef who worked in three-Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Europe, before starting his own pastry and chocolaterie business. The more he worked with chocolate, the more he wanted to create it himself, from bean-to-bar. After initial experiments with micro batch chocolate making, Mark upgraded his equipment and started working with some of the finest cacao origins in the world.

About Krak

  • Mark creates a mixture of dark and milk single origin bars using ethically sourced cacao from small farms and estates around the world. Currently he’s using beans from Belize, Colombia, Cuba, Madagascar, Vietnam, The Philippines, Tanzania, Mexico and Saint Vincent & The Grenadines.
  • Krak Chocolade sources its cacao beans via Amsterdam’s Daarnhouwer & Co., which guarantees traceability, diverse origins and high quality, fine-flavour cacao that is usually certified organic.
  • Mark works with top chefs throughout Europe, creating chocolate that is specific to the chef’s needs, in terms of flavour profile and texture.
  • Many of the bars have won awards at the International Chocolate Awards and the Academy of Chocolate Awards. The Sierra Nevada 55% Milk Chocolate won the Golden Bean Award for best bar at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2021.
  • Mark wants to transform the quality of chocolate used in fine dining restaurants, where the highest quality ingredients are used, but often alongside cheap industrial chocolate.
  • All Krak Chocolade bars are wrapped in recyclable paper, with cacao origin and chocolate information hand stamped on each individual bar.

Krak is available from stock: lead-time is 1-3 days.

Most ethical, most delicious

Perhaps it is because we have not been working in the chocolate business for so long (since 2014) that we work so passionately, accurately and in a personal way. In our team everyone brings his or her own expertise to the table. Organizing chocolate events, selling chocolate, writing articles, organizing tastings or master classes, judging at chocolate awards and much, much more. Our broad work and expertise leads to us always being on top of the latest trends. That is why we also know what your customers need, and how you can have a competitive advantage with the specialty chocolate that not many others sell.
