Small-Batch, Artisan Chocolate
If you love foods that are made with a great level of care and dedication, you’ll love Amano chocolates. These artisan chocolates are made by hand to deliver an incredibly rich, flavorful and fresh taste with every single bite. Based in Orem, Utah, this company was founded by Art Pollard and Clark Goble, two chocolatiers who have traveled around the world in search of the very best ingredients. Pollard and Goble only buy their cocoa directly from growers, and they visit the cocoa bean plantations in person to ensure they get the highest-quality products. Amano chocolates are made with cocoa beans from areas as diverse as the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Venezuela, Madagascar and Papua New Guinea.

Cuyagua Village 70% Dark Chocolate Bar
Signature Edition, Single-Origin Venezuela
Cuyagua is home to some of Venezuela’s most highly prized cacao. Cuyagua’s plantation is old — tracing its history back to the 1600’s. Its trees are tall – many twice the height of that found on other plantations. Amano buy this special cocoa from Cuyagua’s farmers, import it, and using their proprietary and labor intensive techniques transform them into a truly remarkable chocolate. The flavor can be described as being deep and hauntingly rich with wonderful fruit notes of melon and spice. This is an incredible chocolate – one you will treasure and share with your friends and loved ones (if you don’t eat it first).
