To us, chocolate is isn’t just chocolate, but something very special. Chocolate has a story, one that connects us to farmers and growers all around the world.
Quality cacao is the heart of real chocolate. You need great beans to make great chocolate, it’s as simple as that. Our quest to make the best chocolate starts here, with travelling the world to seek out the most exquisite, sustainably grown cacao.
Real chocolate starts with high-quality cacao beans sourced from the best cacao farms in the world. Each bean has unique terroir, or character and flavour, and as craft chocolate makers, we challenge ourselves to find the best possible expression of the cocoa through our chocolate making process.
Our process is rooted in traditional 18th century style chocolate making techniques, but modernized through Hummingbird’s own innovative and industrious style.
Chocolate is a delicate balance of art and science and we make our chocolate slowly, in small batches, with careful attention to detail at every step. Our chocolate makers are diligent and patient folks, carefully checking, monitoring and testing to ensure quality is preserved throughout.
It takes ten steps and over a month to craft our chocolate from cacao bean to yummy bar. We love our craft and nothing is more important to us than taking the time to do it right.
