The pair tested multiple combinations before perfecting a unique blend that highlighted the true flavor of cacao instead of masking it with sugar and other flavors. The result is an array of truly distinctive chocolates with balance and complexity â not unlike those found in exceptional wines. As the first American ‘bean-to-bar’ chocolate manufacturer in over 50 years, SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate Maker led this country’s contemporary resurgence in artisan chocolate-making. It was also the first chocolate maker to label their chocolate with the percentage of cacao inside.Today, SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate Maker travels the world to source the finest cacao. We select the best beans from small sustainable farms in fabled cacao-producing countries: Madagascar, Indonesia, Trinidad, Venezuela, Brazil, Guatemala, Vietnam, Grenada, Paupua New Guinea, Bali, Ghana and Peru. Of the more than 150 samples we taste each year, only a select few are chosen to become SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate. Beans from each region are picked for their unique flavor characteristics, and our roasting parameters are specially developed for each origin to bring out the best in each flavor. We blend these freshly roasted beans to produce our signature flavors, balanced and complex, highlighting the true, rich flavors of cacao. This artisan process, honed with a wine-maker’s attention to craftsmanship, results in the richest, most flavorful chocolate perfect for your favorite cakes, cookies, desserts and savory recipes.
