Craft chocolate you won't find anywhere else!

Collection #1 is awesome. People love it...seriously LOVE it. You can currently still buy the full collection, but we are also splitting some so that you can buy the bars/items separately.

This method ensures that we can sell the rest of our product and start pre-sales for Collection #2. Now that we're getting the swing of things, we want to up our game next round!

Not sure what this is? We worked with some of the world's best chocolate makers to create a collection (limited to 200) full of delicious, ethical, micro-batch chocolate bars, goodies, and club member items. If you find the golden bean inside, you get your next collection free!

Funding:

$7,000 is our safety goal. This is an all or nothing campaign, so we set our number low.

$10,000 get's the ball rolling. All pledges $75 and over will receive a random fine chocolate bar from our shop and everyone will receive a collector pin that didn't make it to Collection #1.

$15,000 would secure that we can release Collection #2 in 2018. If we can reach this, we may just be able to pull it off this Spring. Fall 2018 at the very latest. At this goal, all pledges of $110 or more will receive an additional chocolate bar from our shop.

We plan on incorporating more Stretch Goals, which means you'll get more free perks if we reach larger numbers. We'll keep you posted on this!

Check out our perks below:

We've set up some amazing perks. Think of this as an online store where you get great stuff, and in return, we get the funding for our fun project!

ADD-ONS:

Many people have expressed their desire to Add-On more perks to their pledge. For instance, you may have gotten the Chocolate Tasting with Friends, but you also want to get the Map & Dick Taylor bar.

We can solve this by doing the following:

1. Go back to the project, and click the "manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and click "change your pledge".

2. Keep your current perk that you've chosen, but "up" your pledge dollar amount to the total cost of the perks that you want. So if you pledged $100 for Collection #1, and you want to add $30 for Map & Dick Taylor bars and $15 for Pin and Tasting Book, then update your total pledge to $145. You won't pay additional shipping.

3. Just make sure to specify (in a comment or message on this campaign) which additional perks you added so that I can adjust the quantities and apply the right perks to you. If you can't figure out how to, you can reach out to us at info@cacaoreview.com.

Thank you for making a pledge, we appreciate your support!

Risks and challenges

We intend to have all perks (minus Collection #2) mailed out before Christmas for your gifting plans. We are confident that we can accomplish this, but in the case of a life catastrophe, we better state that it is possible for shipping to run late.

In the small chance that a perk is not able to be fulfilled, we will give you a full refund or credit to our store.

    Durci Chocolate Nibs + Piura Blanco Bar

    • A blend of select Venezuelan Cocoa Nibs from Sur del Lage, Rio Caribe, and Carenero covered in 65% Ecuador Chocolate. These were meant to go in our Collection #1 but when they didn't fit in the bag, we replaced them with another item.

Eric was skeptical, but when the farmer took him to a 100-year old tree and opened a few pods, Eric found it to be true. He then worked with the farmer to perfect fermentation for a fruity lemon and apricot tasting chocolate bar.

    Exclusive to us, Limited Edition, Micro-batch of 200. The Piura Blanco is included in Collection #1, but you can get it separately here.
