The raw natural beauty and integrity of the Margaret River region makes it the perfect location to embark on an exotic journey with the cocoa bean. The process involves roasting, winnowing, stone grinding, conching and tempering. Old world machines that craft chocolate in an old fashioned way. In a way that gently teases out and captures the individual character of the beans.
Using vintage chocolate making equipment and only 2 ingredients, cacao and cane sugar, Bahen & Co. strives to make chocolate in a traditional way that pre-dates the mass production of the industrial revolution. Chocolate that exhibits ancient aromas and flavours and carries the senses back to the times of the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas. Chocolate that speaks of the Growers’ and the unique personalities of the plantations. We hope you enjoy the journey. From bean to bar.
