Like all their cacao products, these are a work of natures crafty work, unconditionally intertwined with the pulse of Bali, The Island of the Gods.

The word Bali, in essence, means Tribute or Offering.  Everywhere one goes on Bali, one sees offerings.  

The cacao that grows from the rich volcanic soil is no different and the communities that grow cacao and many other fruits pay Tribute to the earth, as to the sky, as to the deities that exist on and around Bali.

Food of the Gods from the Island of the Gods

We work directly with over 3,000 farmers farmers on the islands of Bali and Sumatra to procure our fine cacao. 

The history of the Bali Cacao is linked to the history of the legendary Java Criollo, which is linked to the Philippines, which is directly linked to the cacao the Spanish brought there from the legendary Aztec cacao orchards of Soconusco, Mexico.

These genetics that made their way into Indonesia were dominantly planted on old Dutch plantations found on East Java. These same genetics that were so highly regarded were also planted on the next island over, Bali.  As the chocolate industry become more industrialized in the mid 1900’s and production output replaced quality of flavor, the plantations started to replace the Java Criollo with hybrids that increased the volume of cacao per hectare.

Fortunately, the island of Bali was mostly ignored during the hybridization period. This is probably due to the fact that villages and small family farms populated these smaller islands, not plantations. In the mid 1900’s, Bali was nothing like it is today; it was still quite forgotten and remote. Today, many of Bali’s farms still remain as they were. The cacao is grown interspersed with other food crops such as, vanilla, exotic peppercorns, passion fruit, banana, jackfruit, palm trees and mangosteen. We refer to these as “food forests”.
