Bare Bones Chocolate Makers

Bare Bones Chocolate is a micro-batch, bean to bar chocolate company based in Glasgow. As chocolate and speciality food enthusiasts, the founders' wanted to create their own brand that was built on incredible chocolate with impeccable detail through every process. Bare Bones make their chocolate in their workshop in the centre of Glasgow in batches of around 30kg at a time, roasting their cacao on a modified Giesen coffee roaster. Having engineered some of their equipment from scratch, Bare Bones get the best possible quality for their batch sizes. Find out more about the Bean to Bar process here.

Cacao is one of the most complex, delicious and fascinating foods in the world. It is one of the few foods that is both fermented and roasted – creating unparalleled flavour profiles. Handcrafting the chocolate from a raw cacao bean through to a finished bar allows Bare Bones to control every step, and are proud to be one of the very few UK producers who craft from bean to bar.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)
Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
