Hogarth Chocolate is a small craft chocolate maker in Nelson, New Zealand. The founders Karl and Marina started making chocolate after Karl was inspired by craft chocolate after a trip to South America when he tasted pure cacao for the first time. Karl was inspired by the true flavors of chocolate is capable of. Their chocolate hobby evolved into a business so Karl could spend more time at home with his family, a completely different direction from his 20 years of former seafaring life. Karl tinkers with and makes machines to make the chocolate making process more efficient and precise. The team at Hogarth is always on a mission to find new inspiration from the world to be transformed into their next chocolate bar.

Cacao Region

Piura, Peru

Piura is a department of northwestern Peru, bordered in the north by Ecuador and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. Several rivers run through the province from the region’s mountainous zones, serving to keep the coastal plantations naturally well-irrigated and productive year-round. The region is the second most-populous in the country, responsible for roughly a third of Peru’s annual petroleum production, as well as a significant amount of its mining. Similar to the rest of the country, much of Piura’s agriculture relies upon commercialized crops, such as sorghum, rice, corn, and yucca, though an increasing amount of native criollo cacao is being cultivated throughout the region.

Cacao Estate

Norandino Cooperative

Founded in 2005, the Cooperativa Norandino represents more than 7,000 families producing cocoa, coffee and panela across the north of Peru. Its mission is to improve the livelihoods of its member families by offering access to local and international markets. The cooperative is large by Peruvian standard, but it’s driven by its core values of transparency, equality, respect, responsibility, democracy and quality. All of Norandino's producers are Organic- and Fairtrade-certified, but because it represents cacao producers from so many regions of the country, chocolate makers are able to source Norandino cacao based on area of cultivation or even type of cacao. This allows makers to invest in a sustainable and equitable system while still maintaining control over their unique flavor proposition.

Excellent bar!

Such a good bar! Very fruit forward. Great snap an melt in your mouth texture. Not as intense of a dark as some would like but probably one of my favorites so far. Really like the air tight packaging as well compared to most others paper wrapped, reall seems to keep these bars nice and fresh.

A great lighter dark chocolate

Excellent piura bar. This bar will surely please even those who aren’t fans of dark chocolate.

Love Norandino Coop in Peru!

We have consistently loved bars made with cacao from the Norandino Coop in Peru, and this bar did not disappoint. It has a bright flavor with fruit, honey, and a touch of acidity, my wife and i found it reminiscent of a delicious, fruity champagne. Really light and crisp flavor, sweet but not overly sweet. Would highly recommend.

Thank You Chocolate Club!

This came as one of the monthly chocolate club offerings, and I’m very happy it did. It’s Peruvian, and high-quality. It’s a smooth, creamy bar, and I taste notes of caramel and banana (definitely not a stone fruit!). This is the bar that should please those who like super dark chocolate and those who like semisweet chocolate. In case you haven’t guessed, I really like this bar, and I recommend to all chocolate lovers, even those who say they like only milk chocolate.
