Solkiki – GRAN CHILILIQUE 70 – Dark Chocolate
European GOLD medal, Organic Dark Chocolate 2018.
Gran Chililique: ultra-premium cacao, winner of the 2013 Peruvian Gold Cacao Award. This cacao grows on the hills around Chililique, and benefits from very favourable climate conditions. The cacao growers are smallholders that live and cultivate cacao around this community, located in the District of Chulucanas, Piura, North Peru.
50% of the members of this small cooperative are women who – with hard work and dedication – produce one of the most flavourful cacao beans of Peru. Solkiki are proud to promote these wonderful cacao beans and support gender equality.

Solkiki Chocolatemaker has earned over 60 major international awards for over 20 products. Their micro-batch craft chocolate is made from bean to bar using ultra-premium cacao beans directly-traded with special tropical farms.
~99% of the global chocolate trade uses the same type of cacao: easy to grow, high yield, very poor flavour profile. This is why dark chocolate is typically cheap & tastes bitter: it‘s an industrial product, chemically processed and farmed under horrific conditions. Even Fair Trade is not effective for most cacao famers, so we avoid that industry.
Solkiki assess a lot of fine flavour cacao and source the best via a very short chain. Direct trade protects vulnerable rainforests and wildlife while improving the lives of farming communities and quality of cacao long-term. As a bonus, Solkiki’s minimal-process, bean-to-bar approach creates delicious chocolate! We remove the middlemen and encourage farmers to grow these fickle trees, promoting equality, biodiversity, sustainability, nutrition and flavour.
Our sourcing principle is more than simply paying what the farmers ask.
At Solkiki, direct trade means we work in partnership with farmers and fermenters to improve both quality of cacao and livelihoods, long term.
