dark chocolate

Ahoy! Cocoa sets sail: this cocoa was transported from Nicaragua to Hamburg on a sailing vessel. For the first time in 20 years, a sailing cargo ship landed in Hamburg’s port, and with our cocoa on board, having completed an entirely emission-free and sustainable voyage, guarded by the crews of Brigantes and Timbercoast!

In this day and age, almost every product, for 90% of our global trade, is shipped. Thousands of container vessels rely on heavy fuel oil. In order to protect the oceans, Brigantes has switched to sailing cargo ships. Due to their own ship currently undergoing maintenance, our cocoa has hitched a ride with Timbercoast’s AVONTUUR this time. After making landfall in Hamburg, this sailing cocoa continued its travels by train until it arrived for us to turn it into a delicious single origin chocolate with an outstanding life cycle assessment.

Fragrance notes: dried fruit with accents of fermentation, notes of caramel and nuts with hints of malt
Taste notes: an intense aroma of roasted nuts with malt, caramel and subtle hints of whipped cream and fruit (jammy dried fruit, in particular berries and raisins), nutty and malty finish with echoes of fruit

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.
