Created in collaboration with Feve Chocolates, our Chocolate-Covered Nibs highlight the solid heart of the cocoa bean — the nib. Cocoa nibs are the purest, most direct expression of a cocoa bean’s flavor, and the Costa Esmeraldas, Ecuador cocoa nibs used for these Chocolate-Covered Nibs feature notes of buttermilk, dark chocolate, and orange zest.
Feve coats each dark-roasted cocoa nib with layer upon layer of our smooth, dark 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador single-origin chocolate using the old-world process of hand panning. A bold expression of chocolate in two of its purest forms, the Chocolate-Covered Nibs provide a refined flavor pairing with hearty crunch.

A Chocolate-Covered Tradition
Feve coats each cocoa nib with more than 20 layers of our rich 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate using an old-world confectionery technique called hand panning.
Panning, one of the oldest technical skills a chocolatier masters, is an artisanal method of covering nuts, cocoa nibs, or other small confection centers with chocolate. Tempered chocolate is slowly poured or ladled over a batch of centers as they tumble gently in a rotating cylindrical panning drum, or kettle. The drum's rotation speed, and the number of chocolate layers, are carefully controlled by the chocolatier. Friction created by the centers' tumbling action distributes chocolate evenly around every center; once a single chocolate layer solidifies, the next pour of melted chocolate is ladled over the centers. This process is painstakingly repeated until the desired chocolate-coating thickness is achieved.
ABOUT OUR COLLABORATOR
Dandelion + Feve
San Francisco-based Feve Chocolates has been our friend and collaborator since 2012, back when we opened our factory doors on Valencia Street. Their chocolate-covered almonds were our first collaboration and an immediate hit, kicking off a beloved tradition of partnering with local chocolatiers who use our single-origin chocolate to make mouth-watering treats, pastries, and confections.
With a shared commitment to ethical sourcing, and to using the best ingredients, Feve works with us to craft all of our chocolate-covered nuts, nibs, espresso beans, and sea-salt caramels, transforming single-origin chocolate into exquisite, boldly flavored confections.
