Enjoy a range of chocolate products made with beans sourced from across the world with this A Taste of our Origins set.

From originally 2 varieties we now have more than 33,000 different cocoa varieties cultivated in growing countries around the world. At York Cocoa Works our mission has been to explore these flavours and better understand the influences of the cocoa growing, fermentation, roasting and making process in flavour.

We’re delighted to be able to share our latest creations together with some insights into the tasting process; how to identify different cocoa origins, bean varieties and chocolate recipes. With this tasting set you can embark on your own adventure discovering flavour from cocoa and chocolate makers around the world.

A guided chocolate tasting journey from your own home, in this set you’ll find cocoa beans, cocoa nibs and cocoa mass for you to try, tasting the different stages of chocolate production. This taste of our origins set includes five 65% dark chocolate bars. Each bar has been crafted using beans sourced from different origins around the world.

This tasting set also includes a tasting guide booklet to help you explore the different flavours of each origin.
