Our 2017 vintage, created with that year’s very best fine flavor cocoa varieties, which we dry-age for an entire year in order to let the cocoa’s aroma fully develop. Experience a superb blend with rare cocoa varieties from five different countries: Brazil, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru and the Congo.

Our latest vintage blend using cocoa from the year 2017 is an aromatic masterpiece presenting with a powerful but elegant chocolate character. The fine mist roasting method, which we have developed, along with the storage of these harmoniously balanced cocoa beans for an entire year, produce veritable fireworks of flavor. Its intense fragrance of creamy chocolate cake and notes of caramelized nuts and dried fruit make for a very sophisticated combination. The best characteristics of its aroma range develop on the palate. Initially, you will be presented with a flavor of caramel and gently roasted walnuts followed by subtle notes of liquorice and cream. It culminates in a creamy and super chocolate-y main aroma of cocoa alongside mild hints of biscuit. Suggestions of dried fruit and slightly tangy grapes make for a fruity-tingly finish, dominated at the very end by chocolate-y notes of cream and liquorice.

Zotter produces individual chocolate for individual people who savour each moment. The diversified Zotter assortment is a reference to the biological variety. “The assortment is nothing but a small extract of what the cocoa bean with its countless aromatic components renders possible in terms of biological diversity.”


The inventor Josef Zotter has constantly invested in his products. He has been involved in fair trade since 2004, in 2005 his company converted to organic and in 2006 he opened his own Chocolate Factory. For this reason he is throughout Europe the only manufacturer who produces chocolates starting from the bean (bean-to-bar) exclusively in organic and fair quality!


Josef Zotter has succeeded in transforming the world of chocolates. With the hand-scooped chocolates the creative chocolate maker from Riegersburg has managed to upset our familiar view of the world of chocolate. Bacon Bits in chocolate, Pumpkin Seeds with Marzipan and Apples and Carrots with Ginger surrounded by chocolate. The chocolate revolution started: novel flavour combinations, a new format, art as packaging and the transformation of delicacies into green food. In 2012 the hand-scooped chocolates were celebrating their 20th anniversary. More than 20 years of chocolate history filled with a tremendous amount of creations, crazy ideas and the rebellion against the mainstream.


Bean-to-bar – from the bean to the chocolate Since the opening of the Chocolate Factory Josef Zotter has ranked among the few quality chocolate makers around the world whose chocolate production processes are located under the same roof: From the roasting of the cocoa beans via the rolling up to the finishing touches in the conching plant everything is carried out with a high degree of sensitivity. In this way Zotter clearly positions himself against standardized mass production and the concentration of the chocolate market. In his Chocolate Factory there is no run-of-the-mill processing. The entire manufacturing process becomes transparent and tangible for visitors in the Chocolate Theatre. Zotter even was invited to the renowned Harvard University and his company is the only Austrian company included as part of the students’ curriculum as a case study.
