Cocoa bean-to-bar chocolate-making, on an artisan basis, is a long and painstaking process with numerous steps. We sort, roast, crack, winnow, grind, conch, temper and mould our chocolate in small batches directly from premium cocoa beans. We then bag, box and wrap each chocolate bar by hand in our graphic artist custom designed packaging.

As Canada's only artisan science-based cocoa bean-to-bar chocolate-makers, we work closely with the University of BC in Vancouver on various research projects relating to the science of chocolate-making within Wild Sweets® micro-batch laboratory settings and small-scale machinery. For an overview of the complete process, see the bean-to-bar chocolate-making section of our website at this link.

Maleku refers to the indigenous population of the northern plains of Costa Rica where about 240 smallholder cocoa farmers are sourcing pods from native trees, which tend to be a mix of Trinitario and Criollo with notes of plum, molasses and spice.
