Chocolate Bar Set for “Origin Stories”
A tasting set of single-origin Kokoa Kamili bars accompanies a lively and informative talk with Kokoa Kamili owner and co-founder Simran Bindra and the makers of all six bars on July 15th 2-4 p.m. PDT.
We’re excited to bring you into the conversation with Greg D’Alesandre, our Bean Sourcerer, as your host on the topic of single-origin chocolate, alongside those who know the beans and chocolate best: the cocoa producer, and chocolate makers from throughout the industry.
Each month we will feature one of our origins, assembling a set of six bars crafted from that origin by makers from around the world. The cocoa producer and each maker will share stories of their products with us. We hope you’ll join us as we taste a curated flight and dive deep into one of our favorite origins.
The conversation is approximately two hours in length and is hosted on Zoom video-conferencing software. We ask that you use only one login per chocolate set. You are welcome to invite a family member or a few to join from your screen (and it's up to you how much of your chocolate you want to share).
This set includes single-origin bars from six chocolate makers, and instructions to join this month's discussion.

All of our single-origin chocolate is made with just cocoa beans and sugar; no added cocoa butter, lecithin, or vanilla. Our chocolate is free of soy, dairy, eggs, and gluten, and it is made in a factory that does not process nuts.
This selection of chocolate from other chocolate makers is all dark chocolate; however, some makers might have processed their bars on machinery that also processes milk chocolate, or chocolate with additional ingredients. If you have an allergy, we have linked each company, so feel free to research your specific restriction. We strongly suggest looking at the labels, and while there are no substitutions, we recommend passing any bars you are unable to eat along to a friend.
