Ingredients:

The Sierra Nevada is a majestic mountain range in the northern part of Colombia, bordering the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean coast and reaching 18,700 feet in height. Cacao de Colombia recently installed a state-of-the-art fermentation and drying center in the lower community of Macondo, where they primarily source cacao from about 10 farm families in the department of Magdalena.

The technical expertise of these farmers is excellent: farmers even do their own pollination experiments to improve quality and yields, which are currently around 700 kg / hectare in the region. Cacao de Colombia has been providing technical support and a stable market to farmers in the Sierra Nevada for the past 6 years, and the results are clear in both the quality of the cocoa and the impact on the farmers. Farmers report a 72% higher annual income than before this new market existed.

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.

  • 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.
