Aschenti Cocoa: Organic Farm To Bar Chocolates!

Aschenti Cocoa: organic farm to bar chocolates! | Help us grow and make Manitoba a premier chocolate destination!

Superfood Not Candy

Thanks for checking out our Indiegogo campaign! We’re Christian and Christelle, a new farm to bar chocolate maker couple, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In the past years, Manitoba is becoming a premier travel destination and the new Lonely Planet list of Best places to travel in 2019 is just a proof of that. We want to make Manitoba a chocolate destination!

 

FARM TO BAR CHOCOLATES

 

After being in Winnipeg for a few years, we started looking for a wholesome chocolate and couldn’t find anything locally. With our connections back in Cameroon, we invested in a cacao farm with the help of our family there. Now, we get to control the quality of the beans we grow and don’t have to worry about Fairtrade conditions since it’s a small family operated farm. We visit the farm a few times per year especially during harvest season. After harvest, the beans are fermented then we ship them to Manitoba. In our open concept store, we sort, roast, crack, winnow, grind, refine, conch, age, temper, then mould and hands wrap our chocolates. The result is a luxurious chocolate, made without additives, using the highest quality ingredients, a rich and virtuous chocolate. The support we received after attending a few local events motivated us to work harder and open a store in order to be able to share our passion and knowledge with a broader community.

Over the past almost two years since opening our store, we have worked very hard to craft chocolate that meets these standards. Along the way, we have also continued to learn, experiment and taste to increase our understanding of chocolate and chocolate making. This knowledge has led us to improve our process resulting in even better chocolate.

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP & WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

We are looking to get one tempering machine and one melanger.

  • We will always be a humbly-minded local business, and we will always be closely involved in the process. But at the same time we want to grow and expand across the Prairies as more specialty stores, boutiques and shops want to carry our products. We love it that our chocolate makes people happy! 
  • If we go from one big melanger to two or more machines, we can make all two or more varieties at once instead of one at a time. We won’t have to work all night to get the chocolate tempered, hand-wrapped, and shipped to the stores on time. 

Lately, we have been receiving phone calls and emails from people across the country who want our chocolate. In order to continue sharing our bars with more people, we need your help! 

  • We wish to raise enough money to purchase a larger, more advanced tempering machine. This machine has the ability to temper 16Kg of chocolate, or 228 regular bars per hour and can deposit the appropriate amount of chocolate into each mold. Currently, we are limited by a machine that only allows us to temper 1kg of chocolate or 22 regular bars every two hours and a half and requires us to manually pour the chocolate into each mold. With this new machine, we can increase the efficiency and scale of our production, allowing us to meet the growing demand, expand our line of organic products and continue to share our passion for fine, handmade chocolate that is good to us and to the Earth.

As a BONUS, when you you pledge your support, you get a reward. Have a look below. If you know anyone who would enjoy fine chocolate rewards, please share this with them. If you know anyone who would enjoy these exclusive rewards, please share this with them. Merci!

 

Risks & Challenges

Risks and Challenges are always a part of a new venture. However, we have gone to great lengths to learn the art and alchemy of creating small batch, farm to Bar Chocolate. Since opening the store, almost two years ago, we have spent hundreds of hours in research and development, perfecting a truly magnificent tasting chocolate.
