De Villiers Artisan Chocolate


Our friends gave us this DV Chocolate Taster Pack and I love the packaging so much that I wanted to share it with you.  DV Artisan Chocolate in the Cape Winelands is one of the few ‘Bean to Bar’ micro batch chocolate makers in the world. They combine ancient chocolate making techniques with modern technology to optimise the inherent flavours in the cacao bean.

This taster pack is the perfect way to experience the incredible variety of tastes in their different chocolates. The pack contains 6 single origin mini bars complete with a guide to tasting chocolate. I couldn't always detect the specific hints of flavour they described, but each chocolate definitely had a very distinct flavour and is worlds apart from readily available commercial chocolate.
