Many details distinguish good chocolate from excellent chocolate. Each cocoa variety has its own flavour characteristics. The experience of the chocolate maker is crucial to make a good chocolate out of the beans. As with good wine, you can taste the terroir of the beans. This gives the chocolate an unique flavour. Because of relatively small production, the chain is transparent. Bean-to-bar makers buy cocoa directly from farmers, which enables them to improve their living, unlike any mass-market chocolate.
