Beatriz’s idea is very simple: to produce good chocolate at an even better price.

She carefully selects chocolate with character which has a striking and recognisable aroma.

The ingredients for the fillings are of the best quality and freshness with out any artificial flavourings, fragrance or colours. As a result the chocolates have a shelf life of six to eight weeks, but this doesn’t seem to be a problem for her clients as they tell her the chocolates do not normally remain in the box uneaten for more than six to eight days!

 

OUR CHOCOLATES

  • Dark chocolate: A combination of cocoa beans from Africa produces with a quite bitter and intense taste, and aromas of jungle fruit, but not too complex, to be able to combine well with all our fillings. Minimum cocoa content of 72%.
  • Milk chocolate: Creamy with a subtle taste of caramel which combines well with our hazelnut, almond or peanut fillings. Minimum cocoa content of 33%.
  • White chocolate: A very baçanced taste of caramel and natural vanilla of the Bourbon type which combines well with soft fruit, ginger or mint. Minimum cocoa content of 29%.
