Monsoon Chocolate

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Crafted in the American Southwest

Drawing inspiration from local ingredients, Monsoon Chocolate transforms transparently sourced single origin cacao from all over the world into craft chocolate bars and chocolate confections.

The chocolate produced is truly a collaboration between Monsoon and the farm workers who grow, harvest, ferment, and dry the cacao. Monsoon stays true to the bean, honoring the farms’ hard work by processing the cacao as minimally as possible, revealing the flavors inherent in the beans.

Monsoon Chocolate Mesquite 45% White Chocolate Bar

Mesquite 45% White Chocolate Bar

Single Origin Ecuador

Three varietals of mesquite trees are native to the Sonoran Desert, and the edible legumes they produce have been a staple food for indigenous people for the thousands of years. Mesquite pods are packed with natural sugars that, when toasted, lend a nutty and caramel-like flavor to this non-traditional white chocolate bar. Monsoon is proud to source their mesquite pod from the San Xavier Cooperative Farm, who employs tribal members to wild-harvest the pods, sun dry them whole, and then mill into a flour on their stone mill.

Tasting notes: caramel, toasted nuts, sweetgrass

Blue Corn Atole 42% White Chocolate Bar

With Heirloom Corn

This bar is inspired by the traditional corn and masa-based beverage Atole of Mesoamerican origin, where toasted corn or masa is blended with water or milk, piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar), vanilla, and optional spices, fruits, or chocolate. The consistency of this beverage can range from a thick porridge to a thin liquid. Here Monsoon has refined the blue corn into a traditional white chocolate that retains just enough texture to enhance the perception of the delicate and floral qualities of the heirloom corn.

Tasting notes: custard, sweet corn, floral

Kokoa Kamili Tanzania 77% Dark Chocolate Bar

Consistently High Quality

Kokoa Kamili was founded by Brian LoBue and Simran Bindra, in the Kilombero Valley of Tanzania. The company operates a central fermentary that works with nearly 3000 small shareholder farms. In an area that has historically received some of the lowest prices for cocoa in the country, Kokoa Kamili is now paying a premium well above market rate to the farmers for wet cacao, and controlling the post-harvest processing themselves. This results in higher compensation and a reduced workload for the farmers, and ultimately produces a more consistent, high quality product.

Tasting notes: tropical fruit smoothie, hong kong milk tea, black cherry
