Experience the rich delight of our single-origin Hot Cocoa Mix. McGuire carefully sourced organic, natural process cocoa powder from the renowned Kokoa Kamili, infusing this blend with more flavor than your typical hot cocoa mixes.

Distinguished from drinking chocolate by its blend of cocoa powder and cane sugar rather than chocolate chunks, our hot cocoa mix is a nostalgic nod to childhood memories. Transparently sourced, this blend utilizes natural cocoa powder to deliver a robust and flavorful chocolate drink.

Crafted from less refined natural cocoa powder, it preserves the distinct flavor of the cacao origin and offers higher nutritional value compared to conventionally processed cocoa powders.

Sourced from Kokoa Kamili in the Kilombero Valley of Tanzania, this cocoa represents more than just flavor—it supports a social enterprise dedicated to improving the lives of cocoa farmers.

To prepare:

  1. Heat 1 cup (8 oz) of water, milk, or a milk alternative on the stove until steaming.
  2. Remove from heat and vigorously whisk in 2 heaping tbsp (40 g) of our hot cocoa mix.

McGuire Chocolate is an artisanal chocolate producer, committed to the craft of transforming cacao beans into exquisite, uncomplicated, and high-quality chocolate.

Mark's serendipitous encounter with cacao beans occurred during his backpacking adventures in Central America. While relishing these beans as a nutritious and convenient snack, he found himself pondering the intriguing journey from cacao to chocolate.

Driven by curiosity and passion, Mark embarked on some experimental endeavors to create chocolate during his travels. This involved roasting cacao beans over an open fire, manually peeling them, and processing them through a meat grinder. His pursuit of this chocolate-making journey continued as he returned to Calgary, laden with suitcases brimming with cacao beans, in search of a mentor in the art of chocolate making.

Mark soon realized that although there were many individuals in the world of chocolate, few were truly engaged in the meticulous process of crafting chocolate from the very essence of the cacao bean.

Keep in a cool, dry place, away from direct light and strong odours. Store at maximum
18 ° C in its original packaging

Our chocolate makers proudly refrain from using any artificial stabilizers or preservatives in their products, making their creations more temperature-sensitive compared to other premium chocolates.

To ensure the optimal taste experience, it's advisable to store our chocolates in a cool, dry place where the temperature hovers between 16°C and 18°C. Please refrain from refrigerating our chocolates, as this may cause sugar crystallization due to increased humidity, altering their texture and flavor.

On the contrary, if stored in excessively high temperatures, cocoa butter may separate and form a white film on the chocolate's surface. This loss of cocoa butter can lead to the chocolate drying out and, consequently, a potential alteration in flavor. Your mindful storage practices will help preserve the integrity of our delectable chocolates.
