Single Origin Chocolate
A large discussion on who is right in this one, does single origin mean by country province plantation?, people argue about this all the time but the real focus should be on the ingredients that go into producing the chocolate not necessarily where from. Using only cacao from one origin is already enough to win the definition of single origin chocolate. Including also spices and other ingredients that come solely from that place brings single origin bars to a whole new level.
By producing from a certain area the entire community of cacao farmers from that specific place face a tremendous economic growth. Consistent purchases guarantee a steady income to the families of cacao farmers companies looking after their workers and crop instead of money being spread across the countries.
If the beans butter and ingredients came from the same area people are happy calling it single origin, but if the butter was to come from a different area or country then the labelling side to things would be flagged.
