Disclosure: I want all of you to be your own judge of chocolate, so I've included makers that I myself don't quite enjoy (due to my quality and flavour evaluations). However, I encourage you to try whatever you encounter and come to your own conclusions.

 

Can't Find Your Favourite Maker? 

I'm happy to add them!  Fill out the form below. 

The focus here is bean to bar makers that aim to create a range of dark chocolate bars that vary according to variety, origin, or variance in flavour according to the cacao seed. Please, no chocolatiers, unless they are also bean to bar. You may add chocolate bean to bar specialty shops (online or brick and mortar).
