Let's take a closer look at what chocolates you can expect to receive this month with the Kekao Box

Raaka Chocolate

Raaka is devoted to making uncommonly delicious chocolate that captures the brighter, bolder, and fruitier side of cacao. They make every bar from scratch with unroasted cacao beans, sourced from growers they trust and admire. The unique flavour of their unroasted chocolate is part place, part process. They craft their bars in celebration of each cacao origin's unique character. Their chocolate making process values the community of growers, producers, and makers whose livelihoods depend on cacao and chocolate. All of their chocolate is made from scratch, bean-to-bar, in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

Raaka Pure Cacao & Strawberry & Coconut 80%

Super dark chocolate with an easy, ice cream-like melt and a natural, juicy sweetness from strawberries. You won’t believe they made this bar without added sugar, but they did.

Juicy and Fruity

Dick Taylor Chocolate

Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate, based in California, is renowned for its meticulous bean-to-bar process. Using the finest fair-trade cacao and traditional techniques, they transform simple ingredients into exquisite chocolate bars. Known for their attention to detail, they roast, crack, winnow, stone-grind, and temper small batches of chocolate, ensuring quality and flavor. Their packaging, with its distinct, elegant designs, matches the sophistication of the chocolate inside. Dick Taylor's commitment to sustainability and direct relationships with cacao farmers reflect their dedication not just to great chocolate, but to a better world.

Dick Taylor Black Fig Chocolate 72%

Their bestselling BLACK FIG dark chocolate is made using cocoa beans from Akesson Plantation, a cacao farm in northern Madagascar in the Sambirano Valley. They handcraft their 72% Madagascar dark chocolate with these beans alongside organic cane sugar from Brazil to bring out the subtle fruity & floral notes in the cacao. They honor this incredible cacao by pairing it with beautifully rich and chewy, dried California black mission figs that have been generously sprinkled on the back of the chocolate.

Fruity and Floral




Cacaosuyo is a premium chocolate brand rooted in the rich traditions of Peru. Dedicated to showcasing the diverse flavors of the Peruvian cacao bean, the company meticulously sources and crafts its chocolates to preserve the unique tastes of each region. Through sustainable and direct partnerships with local farmers, Cacaosuyo ensures that each bar not only represents the finest Peruvian flavors but also supports the communities that nurture them.

Cacaosuyo Piura Select 70%

A vibrant chocolate reminiscent of sweet tarts, the cacao for this bar is carefully selected and processed to preserve all of its vibrant, natural flavors. Made with rare Porcelana cacao from the Piura region, this chocolate offers abundant bright, tart, fruity notes and then settles into a more nutty, woodsy finish.

Vibrant, Sweet Tarts, Balsamic Vinegar, Citrusy and Nutty

Monsoon Chocolate

Handcrafted in the Sonoran Desert, Monsoon Chocolate embraces the challenge of making exceptional chocolate in a unique environment. They believe that true craftsmanship comes from overcoming obstacles. Their chocolate is a tribute to the farm workers who grow, harvest, ferment, and dry the cacao. They honor their dedication by processing the beans minimally to highlight the natural, complex flavors inherent in the cacao. Each bar reflects the harmonious collaboration between the farmers and our artisans, bringing you a taste of the desert's finest.

Monsoon Chocolate Sonoran Sea Salt 69%

The unrefined, solar-dried sea salt that garnishes this chocolate bar is rich in minerals and trace elements, giving it a distinctive depth of flavor and pleasing texture. Harvested from a remote and pristine estuary where the Sonoran Desert meets the Sea of Cortez, the salt bears traces of its journey down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.
