Casa Bosques - Cardamom


Conceived as a personal project by New York's Savvy Studio, Casa Bosques' organic handcrafted chocolate builds on the foundations of a single origin, bean-to-bar practice in an experimental exploration of the history, methods, origins and culture of chocolate. Searching for rare and unique cacao beans from specialty organic producers across Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and other countries of South America, Casa Bosques captures authentic stories of provenance and creates new flavour harmonies incorporating herbs and spices, grains, seeds, medicinal plants and insects. Every bite takes you on a mouth-boggling journey of tradition and innovation. Only available in a few select stores in America, London, Tokyo, Mexico and Luxembourg. And now, Sydney :)

Their charismatic Cardamom choc embodies a world of scent and possibility. Dark chocolate spiced with the piquant aroma of cardamom leaf, evocative of another era. All natural, all organic. 60g. Comes with a poem, too:

It's six o’clock,
Moment of all moments,
Repose and respite.
Fingers running through layered grains of sand,
Time and time again—standstill,
Mirage staining the dry air,
Inhale—restart, restore,
Replenish the palette,
Reinstate of the mind,
Graceful kick to bring back a harmonious aroma,
Sweet elegance,
Fading to dark.
