    Product Description

    Create with Firetree 2kg bags of easy melt pieces. For chefs, patissiers, chocolatiers, and home cooks who demand the best ingredients and single-estate chocolate in their kitchens. Taste notes of red fruits, citrus, and plum, with enduring cocoa undertones.

    Our Guadalcanal cocoa farmers are based along the North coast of the island, not too far from the historical Henderson airport. As education is mandatory on all the islands we buy from, after school, all the children are seen playing around the fermentation boxes and cocoa boxes. Our main farmer has four sisters and a wife that help maintain the farm. Each playing a part in the cocoa production – from finance to fermenting - which means it’s a family discussion when our Chocolate Makers goes out there to meet them and check the crops.

    The fermenting of our cocoa beans takes place just 50 metres from the main houses and with the smell of acetic acid (vinegar) aroma that occurs during fermenting of cocoa being present during harvest season. Due to the showery squalls that dash in from the South Seas, our farmers are invested in solar drying enclosures in the form of raised drying beds that can be quickly covered with canvas after the 50-metre dash! This form of drying and not fire-drying - allows the true flavours inherent in the cocoa bean to come through without smokiness being a flavour note.

    The island of Guadalcanal, nestled in the heart of the Solomon Islands, is home to some of the finest cocoa from this region. Honiara is the Capital of the Solomon Islands and main port for all exports, including cocoa, coconut, and tuna. The cocoa trees grow in this rich volcanic soil, protected from the midday sun beneath high coconut palms.

    Comes in a resealable pouch.

    About the Producer
    Founded by two passionate chocolate makers and eaters with over 70 years of chocolate experience, we launched firetree in 2019 but have been sourcing rare beans from remote oceanic islands for several years now. We started firetree to create a range of chocolate without parallel. Each island variation we make only uses cocoa from a single estate. We create a range of single estate chocolate bars, all with their own subtle tastes derived from the volcanic soils of the islands the cocoa trees grow on. As we work directly with our farmers, we are able to influence the picking, fermenting and drying of the beans before they are shipped directly to us in the UK.

    Our promise on sustainability: Instead of dealing with our farmers through agents, we go to them directly. By cutting out the middle man, the farmers get more for their hard work. Two or three times the market rate in fact. It means they can provide for their families, and commit to high agricultural standards that makes for a great chocolate.
