Why We Love Them
This hot chocolate is pure indulgence, it really is a special treat. It’s absolutely delicious mixed with some hot oat milk!
We love the dedication that Cameron and Lara have to ensuring all their cacao is ethically sourced and of the highest quality. They carefully source speciality cacao, paying a premium price which is so important in guaranteeing high-quality crops, creating a sustainable future for the farm and building a mutually beneficial relationship with the farmers.
Their 'bean to bar' process begins with them hand sorting and assessing each cacao bean individually for defects followed by roasting and grinding the beans in a 3-day process which also works to mellow the chocolate, eliminating the volatile acids and bitterness commonly associated with dark chocolate. It's then aged for 2-3 weeks to allow the flavours to develop further.
They’ve shown how incredible chocolate can taste without all the added extra’s usually found in chocolate products - soya lecithin, excessive fats and sugars, additives and e-numbers - honouring the farmers, the cacao and the maker.
“Bare Bones Chocolate is a micro-batch, bean to bar chocolate company based in Glasgow created by us, Cameron and Lara. As chocolate and speciality food enthusiasts, we wanted to create our own brand that was built on incredible chocolate with impeccable detail through every process. We make our chocolate in our workshop in the centre of Glasgow, in batches of around 30kg at a time. We roast our cacao on a modified Giesen coffee roaster and have engineered some of our equipment from scratch, to get the best possible quality for our batch sizes.
We designed the branding ourselves in a simplistic and minimalist style that compliments the quality of the chocolate inside. We wanted to create packaging that mother nature would be proud of – focusing on reducing our impact on the planet rather than increasing profit margins! All of our packaging is sourced from inside the UK. We only use packaging that is from recycled sources and which can be recycled or composted after eating.
We want to build a sustainable brand that can make a difference in the chocolate and food scene. We want to share our fascination for cacao with our customers and demonstrate how incredible it can taste – without soya lecithin, vegetable fats, additives or E-numbers. Chocolate should be pure, delicious and ethical. Honouring the farmers, the cacao and the maker.”
