From remote oceanic islands comes a rich volcanic chocolate with its own unique taste.
The Ring of Fire
The remote islands of the southern Pacific and Oceania are part of what is known as “the ring of fire”: a circle of 452 volcanoes surrounding that ocean. This is where you will discover the firetree, or cocoa tree, with its flame-hued pods. The firetree thrives on the rich, porous volcanic soil that is found on these islands. It’s here and a few other places in the world like the volcanic island of Madagascar, where we source our cocoa from. But the soil is only the beginning of our story.
