Dandelion Chocolate

Tasting Notes: crème fraîche, black coffee, and roasted peanuts

These beans come from Camino Verde Cacao, located in central Ecuador in Duran (near Guayaquil). Vicente Norero, the owner and general manager, is one of the most innovative cocoa producers we know. He buys freshly harvested, unfermented beans from over 100 farms and associations around Ecuador and aims to achieve optimal fermentation and drying, imbuing the beans with nutty notes we love. To create this rich, completely unsweetened bar, Eric roasted the beans at a relatively high temperature, bringing out a smooth, chocolatey finish. After an initial hint of bitterness, this bar reminds us of a creamy mocha sprinkled with roasted peanuts.

Our Chocolate Philosophy

Bean to Bar in San Francisco

We’re Dandelion Chocolate, a bean-to-bar chocolate maker in San Francisco’s Mission District. For over 10 years, we’ve been turning cocoa beans and organic sugar into pure dark chocolate. We travel and build lasting relationships with cocoa farmers and producers, then craft small batches of chocolate back home in our factory. With our minimal approach, we aim to highlight different beans’ distinctive flavor notes—from classic fudge to tangy fruit.

JUST
TWO INGREDIENTS

Beans and sugar.
That's all.


Our chocolate bars are just two ingredients: cocoa beans and organic sugar. We never add cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla, flavorings, or preservatives because those ingredients mask the inherent flavors in beans.

PRODUCER
FOCUSED

Good cocoa starts
with good relationships.


Good relationships are absolutely essential to procuring consistently good flavor. We work closely with the producers who grow, ferment, and dry the single-origin cocoa beans we source, so we can share this amazing cocoa.
