Product reviews from our experts…


The taste was excellent and the cacao was smooth and creamy. I loved the packaging and ease of reading the labels to educate myself more about the product.

I also love that it is cultivated in Samoa and its supporting communities in the Pacific Islands through fair and ethical trade!

This cacao was absolutely delicious! I would sometimes eat the chocolate shavings as is but enjoyed serving it up as recommended too. I also love the all-female staff that supports mums and migrants with flexibility and love the no waste ethos of the brand.

Smooth taste and inviting smell – a more conscious way of drinking cacao! It is also so commendable and impressive all the work that is done for vulnerable communities. Sustainable farming methods, especially using solar power is amazing.
