At Atypic, we are truly passionate about our chocolate and only work with cacao growers who provide respect, care and love to their produce and the land it comes from. Our beans are sourced from farmers practicing organic growing processes and support independent businesses who follow ethical, sustainable and fair-trading practices. Nature has done its part to create distinct flavour profiles for each cacao bean source and we invest a lot of time bringing out these authentic cacao flavours.
We pay a premium fee for our beans which are sourced from our neighbours in the Pacific Islands, working directly with the farmers who grow, ferment, and dry the cacao we buy. We frequently visit our suppliers to learn about their process, visit the plantations and ensure the highest standards of quality and sustainability are met. We are also proud to participate in community events and workshops which have not only strengthened our partnership with the farmers but also formed great friendships within the community which is reflected in our product.
You can view the entire process in our open workshop in Melbourne. Preparing premium chocolate isn’t a mechanical process, it requires handcrafting methods at every stage to ensure the highest quality.
