The last island of note in the eastern region of the Solomon archipelago, the remote island of Makira - with its rich volcanic soil - provides us with a cocoa bean that has a rich and complex flavour enhanced by gentle hints of grapefruit, raisin and caramel overtones
Makira has two guest houses, a grass landing strip, a small hospital, and Lucy's all-female cocoa farm. It is the personal, artisanal nature of the farm that ensures the distinct character character of this delightful chocolate.
The long finish and lingering taste of our chocolate is due to the firetree, or cocoa tree, which thrives on the uniquely rich, porous soils of the South Seas' remote volcanic Islands. Firetree's superior beans yield a distinct depth and complexity.
Tasting Notes: Soft grapefruit and raisin tones married with rich caramel. To enjoy fully, take time to let the flavours develop on the palate.
