A Guided Tasting of Chocolate:
Our haut-chocolat is infused with a healing sound frequency to raise your vibe.

Close your eyes. Take three deep, ujjayi breaths. Listen to the space between thought and prepare your palate to experience chocolate.

Describe what you see. What is the shape, color, sheen and texture?

Run your finger against the chocolate, noticing its texture and releasing the aromatics.

Bring the chocolate to your nose. Close your eyes, cup your hand around the chocolate and inhale deeply.

Enjoy your haut-chocolat in two bites. In the first bite, you are just getting to know the haut-chocolat, and in the second, you delve deeper, searching out the aromas and nuances. You become immersed in the experience of the chocolate and the sensations. After you’ve eaten the haut-chocolat, take a breath and taste the air. The aroma should have a long, lingering finish that is layered with perfumed notes.

Living in Paris, Katrina learned the Parisian ritual of purchasing chocolate and pastry daily. We use exotic and ephemeral ingredients for all our products.

"From our Lab came the Pure Plant Cacao line experiment. It is a considered idea of simplicity and engagement with pure cacao. This is not a sweet escape, this is a different way of experiencing chocolate in a way of getting closer to the cacao bean itself, deeper, almost in a savory way.

Each chocolate was a challenge to myself to be thoughtful, selective, and limit how many ingredients I used, while still creating complexity and surprise on the palate. Wanting to also highlight the health benefits of the cacao, I chose to use only unrefined sweeteners and olive oil versus dairy to create creamy ganache and milk chocolate effects all the while, each chocolate is infused with a sustained 528 Hz healing, frequency vibration during the crystallization process.

I sought to utilize all parts of the cacao pod that are not typically used to make chocolate bars. Shouldn’t we try to use the whole pod and celebrate its natural perfection? So we blended in the pod fiber and the baba, which is the white fruit that surrounds the cacao beans and is typically discarded. A more sustainable choice as well.

This new line of chocolate introduces you to chocolate in a new way and that allows one to experience cacao and all its components - fiber, cacao fruit, and cacao - creating a sustainable experience and as close to how nature intended it to be discovered: simply."

Peace, Love & Chocolate,



    Wildflower Honey
    United States
    Savannah Bee Wildflower Honey is a polyfloral variety, meaning many types of nectar were collected by our bees to create it. Most likely, those nectar sources are white holly, gallberry, sawtooth palmetto, and tulip poplar. The flavor depends on the remote Georgia wildflower blossoms and the whimsy of the bees. It's the perfect "all-around" honey.

Don’t just take our word for it...
