Solkiki – MARANON 71 MARABA COFFEE – Dark Chocolate
Bronze winner of the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2018 (Category flavoured dark chocolate)
We’ve partnered up with our sustainably-minded friends at Union Hand-Roasted Coffee to create 3 coffee inclusion bars.
Fruity, full bodied and perfectly balanced. The world’s first Rwandan specialty coffee. Grown by Abahuzamugambi Ba Kawa (though we just call them Maraba). Union Hand-Roasted Coffee began trading with Maraba in 2002. They were just a small group of farmers, back then. Today, they’re a co-operative of 1,500.
Varietal: Red Bourbon
Altitude: 1750m ASL
The rarest cacao in the world is combined with this fantastic coffee. Notoriously temperamental but delicious when tamed, we hope you enjoy the Solkiki interpretation of the Fortunato No. 4 bean. Into this sophisticated, potent and fruity chocolate, we add the coffee to trigger even more flavours during the very long luxurious melt. A delicate balance allowing you to taste both coffee AND cacao.
Allergen information: contains no nuts, dairy, wheat, gluten, or soy (nut-free, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free). Made in a facility that uses nuts and soy. Vegan friendly.

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.
