We hebben er maar vier van in Nederland. In Rotterdam staat er eentje: een kleinschalige chocoladefabriek waar op ambachtelijke wijze single origin chocolade wordt gemaakt. Ewald Rietberg en Jan Willem Jekel produceren chocola van Heinde & Verre.

“Chocolade met een wolkje melk”, chocolate with a “cloud” of milk as we tend to say in The Netherlands. This new Heinde & Verre dark milk bar of 54% combines cacao from Venezuela, Bali and Brazil with creamy Dutch cow milk.

Crafted in the Dutch flavour tradition this milk bar reminds us of the rich Dutch chocolate history and dairy tradition. The blend of premium cacao origins brings complexity and depth to this bar. The combination of the full-bodied Dutch Milk and the fruitiness of the cacao brings a natural hearty flavour to the chocolate.

• Cacao from Venezuela, Zulia, Andes region
• Cacao from Indonesia, Bali, Tabanan region
• Cacao from Brazil, Pará, Amazon region
• Cow milk from the Netherlands
• Beet sugar from the Netherlands

Red and white fruit, caramel and herbs


Cacao in its purest form: Porcelana Black, 100% cacao, no sugar, no additives.

We have selected this Venezuelan bean as our 100% bar because it is naturally low in acid and bitterness. The art of slow grinding and aging made this bar surprisingly light for a 100% cacao bar.

Tasting notes: complex elegant lingering taste of white fruit, herbs, flowers and nuts.



BLOSSOM BALI is our new single origin grand cru white chocolate bar. Made of premium cacao butter from organically grown sun dried beans from the Indonesian isle of Bali. The perfect match for quality Dutch cow milk and sugar beet.

A roaring bouquet of flowers, butter, herbs and honey pampers your senses when opening this package. The natural rich cacao butter is so exciting, aromatic and savoury, that no vanilla or other flavouring is needed.
