Handcrafted garden cacao from Suriname

At Tan Bun Skrati artisanal chocolate is made from tree to bar. The hands doing the harvesting are the same as those that do the fermenting, drying and all other steps in chocolate making up to the packing and shipping of the bars.

We harvest in privately owned gardens and orchards in the districts of Saramacca, Wanica, Para and Commewijne and then process the cacao in our studio in the capital: Paramaribo.

Suriname is the smallest country in South America. Part of the Amazone, it borders the Atlantic Ocean on the Northeastern shores of the continent that are nicknamed 'The Wild Coast'.

Suriname is home to both wild cacao in its rainforest covered interior as well as cultivated Trinitario cacao growing in the coastal area.
