Firetree Soloman Islands Makira Dark Chocolate


The last island of note in the eastern region of the Solomon archipelago, the remote island of Makira – with its rich volcanic soil – provides us with a cocoa bean that has a rich and complex flavour enhanced by gentle hints of grapefruit, raisin and caramel overtones.

With the cocoa trees’ yellow, red and orange pods, from a distance it can look like a tree on fire, say the founders of Firetree Chocolate.

This chocolate maker’s name also resonates with its sourcing of cacao from small islands on the Pacific Ring of Fire, all of which have a volcanic past. In some cases, the cocoa trees are still growing besides dormant volcanos.
