Celebrate World Chocolate Day with single estate dark chocolate from Grenada

L’Esterre Chocolate is an ethical and sustainable chocolate, made using cocoa from a farm in Grenada, which is transformed from ‘tree to bar chocolate’ in the Cotswolds using just two* ingredients: cocoa beans and cane sugar. The chocolate is wonderfully dark, full of fruity flavours, and is incredibly moreish, even for those who don’t usually choose dark chocolate – that’s how good it is.

There are three varieties with varying intensities and flavours:

  • 70% chocolate buttons: flavours of banana, berries and caramel
  • 72%: sea salt chocolate buttons (*also contains Maldon salt)
  • 85% chocolate buttons: flavours of coffee, caramel, hazelnut

60g pouches of each flavour cost £7, or if you can’t decide, a trio of pouches with one of each flavour is available for £19. Larger 120g pots cost £15 each, and a trio of pots can be obtained for £40.

For all orders made in July, 5% will be donated to the relief efforts for Hurricane Beryl, which has severely afflicted Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique.
