Chocolate is Changing

"We were genuinely torn over which bar to pick – both are excellent, delicious and intriguing. And they’re probably the best-looking bars we’ve seen, with their expertly crafted, geometric moulding and eye-catching packaging. The Asajaya, named after the estate on which its beans were grown, has a lot going on with the flavour, with a certain, almost herby kick to it, while managing to remain alluringly smooth."

Beau Cacao (France): Chocolate is Changing

Beau Cacao, a chocolate venture with a distinctive vision, is on a mission to redefine the chocolate experience in a modern and sensory way. The founders, who initially pursued careers as a product designer and a professional waiter, embarked on a journey that led them to explore the world and discover the multifaceted nature of chocolate. They recognized that chocolate had the potential to be as intricate, elegant, and captivating as wine, and they felt that this realization was something that should be shared with the world.

Driven by the desire to make chocolate a source of indulgence and pleasure, they gave birth to Beau Cacao, a brand dedicated to producing seasonal, single plantation chocolate bars meticulously crafted in Briançon, Hautes-Alpes. Their core mission, both as individuals and as a company, revolves around transforming beloved treats into intimate, shareable moments of wholesome delight, all the while preserving the Earth's precious resources.

The founders of Beau Cacao are passionate about ensuring that people can enjoy chocolate with confidence. This confidence is rooted in their commitment to sourcing the finest cacao beans from the right farmers and treating everyone in their supply chain ethically and fairly. They take a responsible approach and adhere to equitable standards, striving to have a positive impact on the ecosystem and support sustainable agricultural practices.

Beau Cacao's rejection of the modern mass-market approach to chocolate-making is a testament to their dedication to creating a direct connection between consumers and cacao farmers. By working closely with small-scale cacao growers, they maintain full transparency in their products, fostering strong and prosperous partnerships that benefit the farmers, the company, and the discerning chocolate aficionados they serve.

This unique approach allows Beau Cacao to capture and retain the distinct flavors and aromas, often influenced by the terroir, that leave their mark on the cacao beans. The result is a collection of exceptional single plantation fine chocolate bars, each one telling a story of origin, care, and dedication. Beau Cacao's unwavering commitment to excellence and sustainability shines through in every delectable bite of their exquisite creations.
