Collection: Raaka Chocolate

Raaka Chocolate makes every bar from scratch with raw unroasted cacao beans, sourced directly from growers Raaka trust and admire.  Raaka is devoted to making uncommonly delicious chocolate that captures the brighter, bolder and fruiter side of cacao. The unique flavor of their unroasted chocolate is part place, part process. They craft their bars in celebration of each cacao origin's unique character at their factory in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

Raaka Chocolate believe their process should value the community of growers, producers, and makers whose livelihoods depend on cacao and chocolate. They print a transparency report inside every bar. Learn more about Raaka's progressive sourcing transparency. (Transparent Trade) 

What is unroasted?

In the Merriam-Webster dictionary, chocolate is defined as “a food prepared from ground roasted cacao beans”. This nice and concise definition had us in a minor existential crisis when we first started making “chocolate” without roasting our cacao beans. We asked ourselves, “Are we actually making chocolate?”

We simply love the bold, bright, and fruitier flavor of unroasted cacao beans. We couldn’t find these flavors in other chocolate since most of what is available is made with roasted cacao beans, so we decided to make our own.
