Premium award-winning bean-to-bar chocolate made from single-origin fair trade organic cacao beans in Montreal
barbon is an artisan bean-to-bar chocolate-maker that handles every step of the production, from selecting the cacao beans to molding the chocolate bars, all handmade and in limited quantities.
barbon uses only high quality cacao beans to provide the authentic taste of chocolate, while increasing awareness through transparency.
It’s time for a change for the “Léopard 70 %” Crunchy Maple.
From now on, Barbon will be using cacao beans from only one single origin – Honduras.
In fact, in all transparency, the supply of the cacao beans from Ecuador has been limited, and it has been challenging to make the product available on a regular basis. This is the reason why the decision to shift to Honduras was made.
Unfortunately, because of this change, the Léopard bars will no longer display the medal that was won with the Ecuador beans at the International Chocolate Awards in 2019, but rest assured that the high quality of the product will not be affected.
It’s no secret that Montreal is home to some of Canada’s best bean-to-bar chocolate producers and Barbon is proud to be mentioned in this list of Montreal’s best chocolate shops.
These past weeks chocolate has been flowing non stop for Barbon! Proud donor partner of the Montreal Passion Vin 2020 edition, Montreal’s most attractive wine event, Barbon donated 350 chocolate bars for the benefit of Fondation de l’Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont. This year, due to the pandemic and health guidelines, the fundraising event will be virtual. Thanks to the purchase of a wine case, every donor will receive a gift box including lovely surprises, of which a Barbon chocolate bar! In these difficult times, we need hospitals more than ever, and they need us. Barbon is honoured to participate in such a good cause.
