"I didn't feel like going back into an architect's office in front of a computer all day," she said. "I was Googling, like many people do at night before they go to bed, and I discovered the bean-to-bar movement by a family that was doing the same thing in Portland, Oregon," Blais recalled. "I didn't want to be in the chaos of Montreal, like traffic and stuff like that," Blais said. Blais said chocolate is now her passion. How bean-to-bar works The cacao bean comes from the fruit of the cacao tree — pods that can range in size from a lemon to a small football. Inside are the seeds or the beans, which are white when the.

Over the years, P. E. O. membership has grown to nearly a quarter million in chapters throughout the United States and Canada. Twenty-eight of Chapter HW’s 40 members attended the meeting, led by chapter President Marsha Cetta, to hear Castronovo discuss the background of Castronovo’s Chocolates. Castronovo Chocolate Factory, run by his wife, Denise, has been recognized in international competitions the past few years for the quality and taste of their chocolate bars, but also for its work in sustainability. In 2005, there were only a handful of bean-to-bar chocolate makers in the U. S. When Castronovo Chocolate Factory opened in 2013 in downtown Stuart, there were about 50 craft chocolate makers in the U. S. With Castronovo’s among the leaders of...

From bean to bar – welcoming Cocoa Life farmers to the UK

We were honoured to host two cocoa farmers from our sustainable cocoa sourcing programme, Cocoa Life, as well as Ghana’s Cocoa Life Director, on a four day visit to the UK in November. They got to see how their cocoa harvest is transformed into Cadbury chocolate and we got an insight into how Cocoa Life is helping whole communities to thrive. Without cocoa there is no chocolate. Without cocoa-farmers, there is no cocoa. Cocoa Life is addressing this very real threat by becoming a partner...

Geeks are using science to make the best chocolate ever

Rob Anderson is a geek. So he makes chocolate for other geeks, or, more accurately, "people who really like chocolate and geek out about it."What does he mean by that? If you change one step of the chocolate-making process, you change the taste of the resulting chocolate entirely. And Anderson wants to show you exactly what that means. Fresco Chocolate, his company, roasts beans four different ways and conches (aka aerates and stirs) chocolate four different ways to create totally unique bars...

Chocolate War: When Geeks Make Better Chocolate

What is Ruby chocolate?Bean-to-Bar (BTB) means that all the process of making the chocolate happens in-house. From sorting, to roasting, to cracking, all the way to moulding, the entire BTB process happens inside one facility with one person or a small group of people. The efficiency of the system even includes the farms where the BTB companies get their beans from. It can be assumed that such a tight system makes it easy to produce chocolate that is said to rival with any other chocolate on...

Kansas City chocolatier Christopher Elbow ups his chocolate bar game

If $10 seems a steep price to pay for a chocolate bar, consider how much you’d be willing to pay for a bottle of wine.This month, Kansas City chocolate maker Christopher Elbow is rolling out the first three bars in his new single-origin bean-to-bar chocolate lineup. He will start with beans from Peru, Madagascar and the Dominican Republic. Throughout the summer, Elbow roasted the individual beans in micro-batches, varying the time and temperature until he hit a “nose” that he liked. “Lots of...
