"We went to the heart of chocolate," said Rossetto, "which is cacao." Tcho hand-picks cacao beans from Peru, Ghana, and Madagascar and works in their flavor lab to home in on the inherent flavors of each kind of bean.
Tcho has mapped out six different flavors on a flavor wheel: chocolatey, citrus, nutty, earthy, fruity, and floral. None of their chocolate has added flavors; it all comes from the bean. "We're making that one flavor the hero of the chocolate we're making," says Rossetto.
