For the Love of Chocolate
Willie Harcourt-Cooze’s love for chocolate stemmed from his desire to try new things. Growing up in a large
family leading a virtually self-sufficient existence on an island off Southern Ireland. His family kept goats for
milk and cheese, milled their own grains and evaporated off sea water for salt. So using completely natural ingredients
and making everything from scratch comes naturally to Willie. His boyhood spirit of adventure led
him to Venezuela, where he bought Hacienda El Tesoro high in the cloud forest, and it continues to guide him
in his quest to make wonderful chocolate. He has journeyed around the Equator and into the world’s jungles in
pursuit of the best cocoa beans.
It’s all about the flavor at Willie’s chocolate. Great cacaos are like fine wines, each has its own flavor profile influenced by genetics, soil, and environment. One can naturally taste like nuts, while the other tastes like summer fruits. Willie’s chocolate from the bean – also known as bean to bar chocolate – is made to capture these delicate subtleties and unique aromas.
Artisan Chocolate Truffles
Willie rolls each truffle in fine cocoa
powder after hand-dipping it in
chocolate using his antique cocoa butter
press. Dark and milk chocolate truffles
are standard, with dark chocolate being
vegan-friendly. There are many
remarkable flavors to choose from,
including Dark Chocolate Champagne
truffles and Raspberry Praline truffles.
The raspberry combination is brimming
with fruity enjoyment, with a raspberry
center surrounded by white chocolate.
