Cooking with this remarkable Single Estate Venezuelan Rio Caribe couverture dark chocolate is a revelation.

Cakes and desserts are transformed by the wonderful depth and complex flavour notes of the cacao. To create a completely clean palette for chefs to work on, we don’t use soya lecithin or vanilla.

All our chocolates perfectly reflect the distinct flavour notes of their beans, so you can choose the one perfect for your recipe.

Rio Caribe’s robust flavour and notes of nuts and coffee make it the classic chocolate for cakes and brownies. I find it pairs perfectly with brown spirits like brandy and rum.

Willie himself is a cocoa farmer, so we buy our beans directly from the farmers, paying premium prices.
Rio Caribe is a king among cacaos. It is grown on the Paria Peninsula on the north eastern side of Venezuela and takes its name from the small fishing port of Rio Caribe. Farming methods are traditional and no chemicals are used.
It is an exceptionally fine Trinitario bean, and has really unusual levels of depth and complexity. It’s nutty coffee notes unfold slowly and stay with you.

Cooking with this extraordinary Venezuelan Rio Caribe 72% dark chocolate is a real pleasure.

It’s coffee nutty notes make it my go to chocolate for cakes, brownies and baked chocolate puddings.

Also good for moulding, truffles, ice cream and ganache.

They are easy to weigh and quick to melt and bring beautiful deep pure flavours.

Ottolenghi uses exactly these Rio Caribe drops to make all his brownies.

Their classic chocolatey flavour makes them perfect fo all kinds of cakes.

They pair particularly well with spirits like rum, cognac and whisky.
