International Chocolate Awards USA GOLD Medal Winner 2020-2021
Made with Sierra Nevada, Colombia beans, the addition of goat milk creates a delicious caramel flavor with a slight tang and a lovely smooth and velvety mouthfeel.
The Sierra Nevada is a mountain range in northern Colombia, located just 26 miles from the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean coast. These cocoa beans are sourced from about a dozen farmer families. Biodiverse cacao agroforestry is practiced with the cacao trees intercropped with walnut, cedar, zapote, citrus, corn and beans. The technical expertise of the farmers is excellent; they even do their own pollination experiments to improve quality and yields.
Started in 2020, Moku is dedicated to spotlighting cacao farmers around the world, and handcrafts high-quality, bean-to-bar, single-origin chocolate from raw, direct trade cacao beans. Moku’s direct trade beans are sourced from farmers in Nicaragua, Peru, Dominican Republic, Sierra Leone, Madagascar, and Colombia. Direct trade ensures socially-responsible compensation to the cacao farmers and fosters prosperity among the farming communities with a focus on integrity, quality, and environmental sustainability.
Going a step further, Moku strives to share the stories of the communities where the cacao beans are grown to help connect consumers to land and people of the chocolates’ origins. Moku’s single-origin chocolate bars each tell a different story, each with enchanting and unique flavor profiles.
Moku’s single-origin dark chocolate bars are made with just three ingredients--cocoa beans, organic sugar, and organic cocoa butter—and are also vegan, non-GMO, and gluten free. These artisan chocolates represent the finest and purest taste of the lands where the cacao beans are grown with a touch of magic from Moku’s handcrafted process.
