Real chocolate starts with high-quality cacao beans sourced from the best cacao farms in the world. Each bean has unique terroir, or character and flavour, and as craft chocolate makers, Humming Bird Chocolates challenges themselved to find the best possible expression of the cocoa through their chocolate making process.
their process is rooted in traditional 18th century style chocolate making techniques, but modernized through Hummingbird’s own innovative and industrious style.
Chocolate is a delicate balance of art and science and they make their chocolate slowly, in small batches, with careful attention to detail at every step. Their chocolate makers are diligent and patient folks, carefully checking, monitoring and testing to ensure quality is preserved throughout.
It takes ten steps and over a month to craft their chocolate from cacao bean to yummy bar. They love our craft and nothing is more important to them than taking the time to do it right.
