Cacao Barry Couverture Chocolate
Signature Chocolate Discs, “Pistoles”
Creating the very best chocolate is somewhat similar to crafting a fine wine – it takes time, patience and commitment. You can’t rush the experience needed to become an expert chocolatier. Luckily, Cacao Barry has this experience in spades. Having been founded in 1842, Cacao Barry has 175 years of chocolate-making experience under its belt. The Barry family were pioneers who traveled as far away as Africa to find the very best cocoa beans, which they then brought back to create their world-renowned chocolate. Since then, Cacao Barry has continued to pioneer new and exciting ways of creating the very best chocolate for you, our valued customers.

For Respect & Valorization of Cacao
Pureté is focused on the respect and valorization of the cacao fruit. It is the association between art and science, uniting sourcing capabilities, technical expertise and meticulous processing methods. Cacao Barry® discovered that specific enzymes are naturally present in plantations, which reveal the purest and the most intense flavors in every cocoa bean. Thanks to the Q-Fermentation™ process, farmers select natural enzymes and add them to the pulp of the cocoa beans, creating a strong, homogeneous fermentation.
Cacao beans sourced from a single country to bring a diversity of flavour that come from each specific origin and bean genetics. With a total of 8 single origines, the aromatic profile of this range features fruity, spicy, smoky or even woody notes.
With a great degree of provenance and traceability, our 2 Plantation chocolates offer a flavour that is distinctive to a single plantation source. Truly natural, these chocolates have individual flavours that also reflect our ideals of fairness, localization, transparency and sustainability.
