Bahen & Co. founder, Josh Bahen, has a decade of experience in the making of fine wine and a wine-makers attention to craftsmanship.
Together with his wife Jacq they operate the chocolate making facility from a family operated farm in Margaret River, Western Australia. The farm has a long history in growing and producing noble food produce – products that speak of their source and the collective passion of the people involved in their cultivation.
The raw natural beauty and integrity of the Margaret River region makes it the perfect location to embark on an exotic journey with the cocoa bean.
Using vintage chocolate making equipment and only 2 ingredients, cacao and cane sugar, Bahen & Co. strives to make chocolate in a traditional way that pre-dates the mass production of the industrial revolution. Chocolate that exhibits ancient aromas and flavours and carries the senses back to the times of the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas. Chocolate that speaks of the Growers’ and the unique personalities of the plantations.
We hope you enjoy the journey. From bean to bar.
