Original Beans Mini Bar Collection (Piura, Virunga, Udzungwa, Esmeraldas)
Since 2008, Original Beans has ventured into remote rainforests to source the world’s rarest cacao beans and transform the cultures of chocolate, food, and luxury. Original Beans founder, Philipp Kauffmann, represents the 7th generation in a family of recognized nature explorers and conservationists who coined the term “sustainability”.

For each bar purchased, Original Beans plants a tree with their initiative, One Bar One Tree.
This gift set comprises their four mini-classics in a beautifully decorative case giving a flavour of the diversity of our Original Beans; enjoy the bright dark Piura Porcelana, the deep dark Cru Virunga, the playful dark Cru Udzungwa with Nibs, and the silky Esmeraldas Milk.
Raaka Botanical Collection Gift Box
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's Botanical Collection box, made in collaboration with New York Botanical Garden, is a celebration of ﬂowering plants and their delicious, delicate ﬂavors. Each box contains three limited batch ﬂower-infused bars wrapped in artwork featuring historical botanical illustrations: the marshmallow-like Vanilla Violet, the soothing and gentle Chamomile Lavender, and the lush, ambrosial Rose Cardamom.
The set features the following bars:
Vanilla Violet 68%
Violet-infused cacao butter and flecks of ground vanilla bean create a thick, melted marshmallow-like chocolate. Dominican cacao lends notes of cinnamon and brown sugar.
Chamomile Lavender 66%
Wind down with this gentle and floral single-origin dark chocolate infused with calming chamomile and lavender. Let your mind drift with each bite...
Rose Cardamom 70%
To make this bar, Raaka gently steams Tanzanian cacao over rose petals and cardamom, conjuring a luscious and dreamy floral bar. Celestial, ambrosial, transcendental.
Ranger Chocolate Gift Set, Medium Bars
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.
OmNom Love Collection
Omnom is a small-batch, craft chocolate maker based in Reykjavík, Iceland. The company started as an experiment to see if the two friends could master how to make chocolate. From the start, they received positive tasting feedback. After receiving positive feedback, they set up a small chocolate-making lab inside a converted gas station and launched. Omnom's mission is to make the best chocolate possible using the highest quality of ingredients.
OmNom's delicious Love Collection, which draws inspiration from Icelandic festive traditions. The set includes two chocolate bars that have a very special place in their hearts:
OMNOM SEA SALTED TOFFEE
Golden-hued toffee chocolate whose key components are barley malt, Icelandic milk, and sea salt. Nostalgically reminiscent of sweet and salty toffee biscuits.
OMNOM LAKKRIS + RASPBERRY
Caramelized licorice chocolate sets the stage for tart raspberries and sea salt in this bright fuchsia bar, topped with additional dried raspberries.
