Here is a masterpiece in a box for the true chocolate connoisseur. All from the same appellation of Ecuador’s Piedra de Plata, one of the many reasons this seasonal collection of 3 to 6 different harvest editions (18 mini bars in total) is so appealing is because it is perfect for a vertical tasting. Wine enthusiasts often partake in vertical tastings that include different vintages from the same origin. Try this practice with the To’ak Harvest Selection and a group of your most sophisticated chocolate lovers. Delight in how each harvest year reveals its own elegant charm!

If you plan to experience these mini bars as part of a chocolate tasting flight, you may enjoy pairing them with a variety of whiskies, well-aged Cognac (VSOP or XO), añejo Tequila (Casamigos or Don Julio), Zacapa 23 Rum and/or sweet fortified wines.

Fine cheeses may also be savored alongside these dark chocolates. Brie, Comté, Gruyère, Beaufort and/or Gouda would be lovely selections.

To’ak bars are prominently featured at Harrod’s gorgeous, new Chocolaterie, which has been selling the finest chocolate since 1870. Feel free to catch a flight to England and stop by this “theater of chocolate” for a box of To’ak mini bars, or, if you prefer to pair convenience with your opulent chocolate, look no further than Barometer Chocolate.

 

To’ak bars are rare, and Barometer Chocolate is delighted to be a stockist. The beans that comprise these beautiful bars come from the tropical forests of Ecuador. To’ak was born out of a rainforest conservation project that co-founder Jerry Toth started in 2007.

 



In the lush, secluded Pacific Equatorial Forest in coastal Ecuador, between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Jerry formed a nonprofit foundation called Third Millennium Alliance and helped to create the Jama-Coaque Ecological Reserve, which currently protects over 1,400 acres of tropical forest. At the reserve, Jerry began cultivating cacao trees and making tree-to-bar chocolate by hand in a thatched bamboo house without electricity.

 


After years of honing his passion and skill, Jerry started collaborating with To'ak's other co-founder, Carl Schweizer, and fourth generation Ecuadorian cacao grower, Servio Pachard.

From tree to bar, To'ak crafts their chocolate bars with the exquisite care of vintage winemakers. As with wine, the characteristics of fine flavor cacao vary according to terroir. At To'ak, the divine chocolate bars are an artistic expression of the land and weather fluctuations from season to season and year to year. There is wild beauty in the variability, and rather than trying to tame the exotic, the makers at To'ak embrace Mother Nature's capriciousness, inviting her to offer a unique kiss to each and every small batch of chocolate. One-of-a-kind masterpieces incapable of being duplicated are the result. 

 Cacao has a noble history, thousands of years long. In the industrial era, chocolate began to be mass-produced and the great respect for rare beans nearly vanished, as did many of the beans themselves due to widespread blight. To'ak's mission is to restore chocolate to its former grandeur and glory, literally raising the bar for all aspects of tree-to-bar production. Elevating the culture of chocolate to an art form is their specialty.
