MS 4: Ritual Chocolate

RitualLaunching July 28, 2017. Please join us in tasting the Peru Marañón 75% bar.

Ritual Chocolate was founded in 2010 by Robbie Stout and Anna Davies and is based in Park City, USA. The company handmakes small-batch, bean-to-bar chocolate using classic European methods, and offers single-origin chocolate from Belize, Peru, Ecuador and Madagascar, as well as drinking chocolate and cacao nibs. In this episode, Robbie tells us how the grinder would keep them up at night when he and Anna began Ritual in their Boulder apartment, about the checklist they use when choosing a cacao origin, and a great story about the farmers behind the bar we taste in the show.
