Medal
Pod
Forastero
Bean-to-Bar

Shiso is the Japanese name for perilla, a herb that is widely used in Asian cuisine as well as traditional Chinese medicine due to its incredible health benefits. The seeds are sourced in the northern province of Mae Hong Son, which is known to produce the best shiso in all of Thailand.

After regularly visiting farms and mountains to enjoy the simple pleasures of nature, they learned about authentic Thai cacao varieties and the local farmers who grew them. The couple naturally became inspired to embark on this journey, getting their hands dirty and making chocolate from Thai grown cacao trees.
