Amedei’s journey starts with foundress Cecilia Tessieri’s small artisanal laboratory and her commitment to excellence. A search that gradually developed through study, passion, and the rediscovery of ancient processing techniques. The raw cocoa pods selected by Amedei from plantations are harvested and sent directly to Tuscany, to be turned into true art pieces by their chocolatiers, who masterfully dose and hand-process a small number of selected ingredients.
Pure Criollo cacao is difficult to come by and even more difficult to mold into a chocolate bar that speaks to the bean's fine, delicate flavor. Amedei has rare access to these of which only 3000 kilograms are harvested each year. Chocolatier Cecilia Tessieri creates an aromatic, well-rounded bar worthy of these coveted, rare beans.
