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

Taza Chocolate

Taza Chocolate makes stone-ground chocolate. Cacao is so complex in flavor that they want to let it shout loud and proud. That is why they do less to bring us more. They stone grind organic cacao beans into perfectly unrefined, minimally processed chocolate with bold flavor and texture, unlike anything you have ever tasted.

Taza Chocolate Mexicano Super Dark 85%

Taza's 85% Super Dark Chocolate Mexicano disc is the purest expression of Taza's chocolate. This new 85% dark chocolate disc has just two ingredients: organic cacao beans and (just a little) organic cane sugar. 

Bold and Fruity

Jcoco Chocolate

When CEO Jean Thompson founded jcoco (pronounced jay-koko) in 2012, her mission was twofold: elevate the way people experience chocolate and turn an everyday indulgence into an opportunity to make a difference. We were thrilled to learn the company uses Peruvian chocolate made by Cacaosuyo. Today, jcoco is a cult-favorite among epicureans and has donated more than 3.7 million servings to organizations working to combat hunger.

Jcoco Contamana 85%

Jcoco 85% Dark is crafted from a single Contamana varietal of cacao sourced from the Quillabamba region of Peru. Quillabamba valley is in the beautiful Cusco region, near famed Machu Picchu and is known for its unique fine aroma cacao trees. The beans are fermented 6 days, dried 5 days with a low roast to retain much of the cacao's natural fruit flavor and acidity. The bar is low in sugar and high in antioxidants, heart-healthy cocoa butter fat, and rich, robust flavor.

Sour Cherry and Floral 

Ranger Chocolate

Based on family recipes and named for founder George Domurot’s niece, a National Park Service Forest Ranger, Ranger Chocolate Company carefully handles each cacao bean to unlock nuance, regionality, and terroir-driven flavours in their chocolate.

Ranger Oregon Sea Salt 75%

Ranger's sea salt adventure explores salt harvested from the Pacific Ocean. In Oregon, they teamed up with their neighbors at Jacobsen Salt Co. They paired their Pure Flake Finishing Salt with their beloved Salitral cacao beans from Peru. Sea salt is turned into the chocolate to add texture and retain its true flavor.
