The search for the purest chocolate

My journey



'I travelled to Costa Rica, a country mostly known for its coffee bean plantations but also produce some of the most finest cocoa beans in the world. The country has an ideal climate throughout the year to grow many different types and flavours of cocoa beans. Cocoa trees need lots of heat and sun all year round (although shade is needed during its early life). The country has remarkable and beautiful landscapes, it flourishes in greenery and extraordinary wildlife'.


'My chocolate adventure begun in the mountains of Mastatal in Costa Rica, a village with a population of just 150. Here my amazing journey began working along side the family who ran the La Iguana chocolate farm. The family have been growing, harvesting and making chocolate for three generations and still continue to produce beautifully aromatic and flavourful cocoa beans. Like me, you may have thought that chocolate is just chocolate, and surely there can't be much difference from one bean to another. Surprisingly, there is a huge variety of flavours in the world. At La Iguana Chocolate, they specialise in growing five different types of cocoa, which, can be mixed or separated depending on the desired flavour of chocolate wanted. The family use traditional techniques in their cocoa production, no heavy machinery or air-conditioned factory, this is a hard grafting chocolate farm who peel every cocoa bean by hand.'





About Us


Our very special selection of chocolates and truffles have been carefully and extensively created just for you to enjoy over and over again. Jamie has spent a long time experimenting with delicious and innovative flavour combinations that any chocolate lover will adore. Jamie believes that cacao should be celebrated for what it is, an exceptional diverse fruit that is packed full of antioxidants, fibre and protein. Rather than being known as a high sugar food that mass produces has made it out to be.


We love to use other sugar alternatives such as honey and syrups. ​
