The cocoa grown by 71 small scale farmer families in the midst of the remote forest of Kaithapara in an altitude of 1200 m is inter-cropped with timber trees like teak and fruit trees like coconut, papaya, mango, jack fruit or banana but also with spices like black pepper, nutmeg, cashew and Cardamom.
With a total forest area of approx. 835 km2 and 77 hectares of farming lands (organic) cultivated, this scenic wild forest provides ideal growing conditions for the fruity, raisin, chocolatey and buttery/caramel beans, named Malabar forest.
After fermenting the beans in wild jack wood containers they are sun dried before they reach us, post which we roast and crack them making them a perfect healthy and delicious vegan snack!

ORDER PROCESSING TIMES
Every single chocolates is made fresh at our chocolate factory in Jaipur, in small batches, by hand. We make our very best effort to ensure that every order goes out within 24-72 hours during business days. Please note additional time is needed during peak holiday rush.
Our shipping days are Monday through Thursday, to avoid your chocolate being in a transit facility over the weekend. We may due to unforeseen conditions, not be able to ship out orders on certain days. This is to prevent the chocolates from melting in transit or a shipping facility that is not temperature controlled.
Shipping can take anywhere between 24-96 Hours depending on where we are shipping to. All orders are sent out with gel packs or dry ice to ensure your chocolates stay cold during transit. However despite that we cannot guarantee that your chocolate will not melt, specially during the hot summer days
