Here you will find the firetree, or cocoa tree, with its flame red cocoa pods thriving in the rich, porous volcanic soil. Soil is where the seeds of Firetree’s flavour are cultivated, but it is of course, only the beginning.
The Art of Great Chocolate
To craft the finest chocolate, each step in the process must be intentional, starting with the beans. Cocoa beans rarely ripen on the tree all at once, which is why our expert farmers complete multiple passes through the estates during harvest, picking only the pods that are perfectly ripe.
Once picked, ripe cocoa pods are fermented. Through years of experience, our farmers can tell whether pods have fermented for long enough purley through touch. Perfectly fermented beans are then sun dried and sent to the chocolate factory. Finally, by roasting, grinding and conching the mixture, our skilled craftsmen are able to bring out the wonderful flavours inside each bean.
