The secret of Indian cocoa
The secret of the diverse flavors begins with the cultivation of the cocoa. At the foot of the Anamalai hills, not far from the Indira Ghandi nature reserve, the cocoa trees grow between nutmeg, coconut and pepper. Soklet works according to the principles of permaculture, a sustainable, natural cultivation method. This means that the use of pesticides can be completely avoided. By the way, you can find out why this is so special and so important in Caro's text about the connection between good chocolate and biodiversity .
Excellent tree-to-bar chocolate of India
Soklet proves that bean-to-bar chocolate from India is very promising! Karthikeyan Palaisamy and Harish Manoj Kumar produce exciting tree-to-bar chocolate from sustainable cultivation, with a lot of expertise and craftsmanship. In 2017 they received the Cocoa of Excellence Award, which was awarded by the research organization Biodiversity International, among others. And of course – you almost guessed it – you can also get the great tree-to-bar chocolate from India from us. We have our absolute favorite bars from Soklet here in our shop ...with a bit of luck there will even be their special edition chocolate with black garlic soon 😍.
