Basel, Switzerland

Idilio Origins‘ sole focus is sourcing rare varieties and famous types of Criollo from single plantations in Venezuela. Veteran chocolate connoisseurs will recognize these beans and their sad lack of availability these days. Be careful not to glaze over the significance of “single plantations” either, an indication in line with the direction of the modern wine industry. A respected bottle of wine doesn’t just list the country or region the grapes came from, but rather also indicates coming from an acclaimed farm. 

Idilio Origins decides the correct roast and conching times for each variety, but it is master Swiss chocolate maker Felchlin who executes their vision by making the chocolate for this award winning line-up.
