Quality & Direct Farm Trade
We work directly with farmers to grow and improve the quality of cacao. Our beans are sourced directly from Coastal Andhra estates- practicing natural farming- and crafted into chocolate bars at our kitchen in Delhi.
Natural, Vegan and Gluten Free
We like to keep it simple and pure. The main ingredients in our chocolates are cacao beans, raw sugar, and cacao butter. We don’t use any emulsifiers, flavors or additives.
Our cacao grows in the Eastern Ghats of India near the Godavari river basin - mainly from three regions Eluru, Pollachi and Puttur. Every bean in a bar comes from a single-origin, thus ensuring the unique flavor profile of that region stays intact.
We hand-sort the beans, roast them, winnow, refine, conche, and temper all our chocolate in the micro factory. Then carefully handcraft it in individual batches, using only the finest ingredients.
Bean to Bar
Darkins is a premium Bean-to-Bar dark chocolate maker on a journey to create Indian-origin artisan chocolates with a focus to promote healthy food.
We deal directly with cocoa farmer helping on how the beans are to be treated from the moment they’re harvested and ensuring the best possible quality and price for cocoa farmers in Andhra Pradesh.
The care, skill and attention to detail of everyone involved in making the chocolate is what makes it special. It doesn’t just taste good, it does good.
We started Darkins to celebrate Indian cacao- its terroir, acidity and undertones. To create a brand of Indian chocolates that excels in combining the finest Indian cacao and flavors. To decouple fine from foreign. We at Darkins strive for chocolate that not just tastes good but does good. We hope that you appreciate the artisanship and love that goes into creating your Darkins bars.
