Bean to Bar Chocolate Tasting


At Bullion, Max Scotford produces craft chocolate from bean-to-bar. Using the finest cacao sourced from smallholder farmers, he strives to showcase the beans' unique flavours within his award-winning single origin bars.

By starting right at the source and working from the bean, he's able to have complete control over the complex steps needed to make chocolate and showcase the distinct flavours of the beans from each single origin.

As a result of this meticulous approach, he believes you will experience chocolate from a totally different perspective. Just as with fine wine, at Bullion he wants people to discuss the different origins and flavour notes of the chocolate he crafts - using his signature bars as a platform to give cocoa the appreciation it deserves.

In this demo and tasting, Max will cover:

  • A brief look at the history of chocolate production
  • Bean-to-bar chocolate and the craft chocolate movement
  • The bean-to-bar process
  • Chocolate tasting
  • Chocolate pairing
