The chocolate:

Auro chocolates are made from the finest Filipino beans. But not only that: This chocolate is not only single origin but single estate. This means that it was made exclusively with cocoa beans from a very specific region, namely the Saloy region. Auro tries to carefully work out the special characteristics and the terroir of the respective varieties. Set amidst tropical mountain forests, fresh spring water flows through Saloy's lush cocoa farms.

This gives the 70% chocolate notes of herbs, cherries and a hint of bergamot.

Auro is a newcomer among the bean-to-bar manufacturers. Founded in 2015, the Filipino company sources its cocoa beans directly from local farmers who are known for cultivating and thus preserving old and special cocoa varieties. Auro pays the cocoa farmers higher prices to ensure high quality beans and improve the farmers' standard of living. Through direct contact, they can improve cultivation and fermentation styles together.


Currently, the Philippine cocoa sector is booming and recovering from the long-lasting low that can be explained by political mismanagement in the 1980s. Many Filipino farmers now dare to resume cocoa cultivation. Also because the government is specifically promoting cocoa cultivation. The Philippines were originally the first Asian country to actively produce cocoa: the first cocoa seeds of the Criollo variety found their way to the islands as early as the 17th century. Unfortunately, the traders back then were the Spanish colonialists and not the Filipinos themselves. Most cocoa is currently grown in the Davao region on the island of Mindanao. Philippine single-origin chocolate was still considered a rarity for a long time. However, some bean-to-bar manufacturers are now offering fine chocolate based exclusively on Filipino beans.
