Willie´s Cacaco chocolates were bort of love and adventure. Owner Willie Harcourt-Cooze buys in Venezuela Hacienda El Tesoro, place where it grows best cacao. His chocolate is all about flavour. Great cacaos are like fine wines, each one with own stunningly individual flavour born of its specific genetics, soil and climate. One might taste naturly of nuts, another of summer fruits. He buys single estates cacaos direct from the farmers, roast them in antique ball roaster and make them into chocolate using just raw cane sugar and natural cocoa butter – no soya lecithin, no vanila, nothing that gets in teh way of the flavour of the bean.

SEED AND BEAN
Seed and Bean we believes in courageous chocolate. We spend hours in our kitchen mixing flavours from nature to transform the simplicity of a pure cocoa bean into kaleidoscopic moments of pleasure; some will be easy on the palette, some will be quite unusual, others will rocket your taste buds, but whatever takes your fancy they promise that chocolate will never be a dull experience again.
Seed and Bean are getting personal with Cocoa suppliers and growers so they can better understand the issues and controls they have.
Rococo Chocolates was founded in March 1983 by Chantal Coady. Armed with a little knowledge, a dangerous passion for chocolate and a belief that there was room for a radically different approach to chocolate, she decided to open a shop in the King’s Road (Chelsea, London). 26 years later and the author of three books about chocolate, she still pushes forward to boundaries of chocolate retailing with 3 shops in London – the original Kings Road store, Marylebone High Street, and a new flagship store with its own cafe, kitchen and chocolate school on Motcomb St in the heart of Belgravia.
Chantal Coady and Rococo Chocolates were awarded a special prize for ‘Changing the way people think about chocolate’ at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2008.

For three generations, the Cluizel family has evolved amidst fragrances of chocolate. With the help of skilled Cacaofèviers®, Confectioners and Chocolate Makers, the family carries on with their tradition, where everything started: in Damville, Normandy. The Manufacture Cluizel developed a direct, sustainable relation with cocoa planters. This fair commitment is a pledge of quality.
A genuine, natural taste, this is what the self demanding chocolaterie always strives for.To achieve this, cocoa beans are fermented according to a skilfully controlled technique, at the planter’s premises. Then, everything is made at the Manufacture Cluizel: from the slow roasting process that perfectly reveals all the cocoa flavours, to the subtle decorations which are often handmade. This results in a range of tastes from unique soils, emphasized by traditional or innovative recipes: Michel Cluizel’s chocolates.
