For our latest interview we caught up with Tania Lincoln from @flintchocolate in Auckland. It was great to learn more about what's happening behind the scenes at Flint, and about the life of a micro-batch chocolate maker in New Zealand. Have a read if you're interested - link in bio. 👀 "When I moved back to Auckland, I bought my first tabletop stone-grinder, and almost cried with happiness when the nibs ground into chocolate for the first time. I sold my first bar at the Auckland Chocolate Festival in 2017. I was under-prepared and completely out of my comfort zone! But everyone was so supportive and encouraging, it’s a such a great industry to be part of." 💕 Thanks to @t_creed  @thisislagom for the photo. 📷 . . . . . . . . . #flint #chocolate #aucklandcity #Auckland #aucklandfoodie #aucklandeats #newzealand #nzchocolate #chocolatelovers #chocolatemaking #chocolatemaker #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #artisanchocolate #organicchocolate #fairtrade #coconutsugar #singleorigin #stoneground #smallbatch #ethical #delicious #treat #interview
We are so excited to welcome @kadkokoa_chocolate from Thailand to our collection! You only have to look at the beauty of these bars to understand the level of quality and deliciousness we're dealing with here. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover! 👅 We have a Chumphon 70% and the Salted Caramel bar available. The Chumphon is a deep and rich single origin bar with notes of toasted nuts and chocolate brownie. The Salted Caramel is one of the yummiest bars we've ever tasted and it's completely dairy free! 🎉 Numbers are very limited on these bars and we don't expect them to be around for long. Get involved! ✌ . . . . . . . . #kadkokoa #thailand #thailand_ig #thai #thaichocolate #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #artisanchocolate #artisanfood #singleorigin #directtrade #ethical #delicious #newzealand #exclusive #limited #foodphotography #productphotography #productdesign #graphicdesign #chocolatelovers #chocolate #darkchocolate #dairyfree #vegan #plantbased #treat

Something exciting arrived from Peru yesterday... the @cocama_chocolate_pe Chocoazu 70%! This bar is made with copoazu (also spelled cupuaçu), which is a sister plant of cacao. It creates a unique and delicious treat with a soft texture like gianduia, and with a flavour that is just like tiramisu! Coffee, milky and subtly chocolatey, even though the only ingredients are copoazu and sugar. 👌 Please note this is not chocolate as it is not made with cacao. If you want an entirely new experience, be sure to give it a try! 🎉 . . . . . . . . . #chocoazu #copoazu #cupuacu #singleorigin #Peru #ethical #delicious #sustainable #beantobar #tirimisu #coffee #newzealand #newexperience #trysomethingnew #yum

Here's another delicious pairing suggestion for this month... the @pascatichocolat Mango Dark with the @sixbarrelsodaco Lychee, Coriander & Lime Experimental Release. Just the kind of tropical escape you need when it's so cold outside! 🍸🍫🌴🌄 . . . . . . . . . #mango #darkchocolate #lychee #coriander #lime #soda #craftsoda #foodmatch #drinkmatch #foodpairing #foodphotography #wellingtonnz #nzmade #local #sixbarrelsoda #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #artisanchocolate #artisanfood #ethical #organic #fairtrade #delicious #delivery #newzealand #chocolate #yum
The incredible @hogarthchocolate Porcelana bar is now available from our website! 🎉 Porcelana is some of the rarest and most coveted cacao in the world. It's only found around the lower part of Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela, and due to the current political climate there, it's very hard to export. This cacao is considered one of the purest forms of criollo; inside the beans are entirely white (hence the name, which is Spanish for porcelain.) 🍫 This 68% dark chocolate is unbelievably light and delicate, with gentle floral and strawberry notes, highlighted by a distinctive mint flavour. This is the first time we've ever tasted natural mint notes coming from the cacao! Make sure you have a nice clean palate when tasting this bar, if you want to enjoy all the intricacies and really get the most out of it. 👅 . . . . . . . . . #porcelana #cacao #venezuela #singleorigin #ethical #rare #delicious #delivery #Hogarth #chocolatemaker #chocolatelovers #chocolate #darkchocolate #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #artisanchocolate #nzchocolate #newzealand #limited #limitededition #limitedrelease
For this month’s pairing suggestion, we recommend trying the @standoutchocolate Haiti 70% bar alongside @quickbrownfoxcoffeeliqueur. This is such a deep and rich combo that you can easily get lost in it. There are worse ways to spend a winter afternoon! 🍫🍸 . . . . . . . . #coffee #liqueur #coffeeliqueur #foodphotography #foodmatch #chocolate #darkchocolate #mocha #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #artisanchocolate #artisanfood #nzmade #aperitif #ethical #delicious #treat #winter

For those of you who love 100% chocolate, we now have the @tibitochocolate Putomayo 100% bar available from our online store. This beautiful Colombian chocolate is perhaps our favourite sugar-free bar we've ever tried. It's not bitter at all - just a deep and savoury flavour that is floral, nutty and tannic like red wine. Very moreish and a great accompaniment to long winter walks. 👌 . . . . . . . #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #artisanchocolate #cacao #singleorigin #Colombia #sugarfree #ethical #darkchocolate #newzealand
