Z Beans Chocolate will be available for purchase online and in-store beginning Friday, October 30, 2020!
Z Beans Coffee is excited to expand into new territory with the introduction of Z Beans Chocolate. From numerous flavored chocolate bars and chocolate-espresso bark to new chocolate-based drinks in the coffee shops, the Z Beans Chocolate line is sure to have something for everyone!
Z Beans Chocolate continues the mission that started with Z Beans Coffee– to create sustainable solutions for hardworking Ecuadorian farmers. By creating daily jobs for their Ecuadorian teammates through both the coffee and chocolate ventures, Z Beans encourages and promotes the continued crop diversification of their farmers’ plantations. This diversification not only allows them to produce a delicious chocolate product but also provides ample shade for the farmer’s coffee plants, resulting in a truly incredible coffee!
The chocolate is produced and exported directly from Zaruma, Ecuador where longtime international Z Beans counterpart Arturo Penarreta oversees every step of the manufacturing process. From purchasing processed organic cacao directly from farmers and roasting & winnowing cocoa beans to molding the refined chocolate into bars and packaging them into containers destined for The States, Arturo manages the international supply chain in order to provide the finest chocolate possible.
