Luxury Eco Chocolate Brand With New Product Launch at Claude Bosi’s Hibiscus

Original Beans Chocolate

Original Beans Chocolate

Original Beans, the eco-luxury conservation-led chocolate company founded on the simple idea “what we consume we must replenish” held a deliciously successful launch for its new Chef’s Chocolate Buttons and Mini Bar Collection at Claude Bosi’s 2 Michelin star restaurant Hibiscus last week.

Claude Bosi served up both his summer vegcentric tart: fresh pea and coconut confit in a chocolate pastry case and his superlative signature chocolate tart with an exquisite molten yet fluffy textured filling – both made with Original Beans Piura Porcelana 75% from Piura River Valley. 

Says Bosi: “The taste of Original Beans chocolate is so distinctive: I like the unusual balance of acidity in its fruitiness which adds incredible intensity to chocolate dishes.  Their commitment to sustainability is impressive too.   It’s good to know that for every 2 kilo bag of chocolate I use, Original Beans replant 20 trees conserving both communities and nature.”

Now home bakers can cook with Original Beans Chef’s Chocolate Buttons with both Piura Porcelana 75% as used by Claude Bosi RRP £6.39 per 200g bag and Cru Virunga 70% RRP £5.99 per 200g bag the first directly traded chocolate from E Congo’s Virunga National Park as used by Phil Usher, Executive Chef of Caprice Holdings Restaurants including The Ivy, J Sheekey, Scott’s, Le Caprice and 34.
