Elements that make luxury chocolates exceptional

1. The Finest Ingredients for Unmatched Taste

Luxury chocolates, as with all items of luxury, are distinguished by the quality of their raw materials-ingredients that have known origins and tested through time. At Chockriti we source our cacao from known suppliers from organic single-origin plantations in South India and/or fine fair-trade cacao from Belgium depending on the chocolates we make. The vendors are selected after months of research and R&D with our ingredients to give the highest quality and taste to customers. See the video of the organic farm we visited in Mangaluru for our cacao.

All our flavor ingredients are natural high-grade teas, flowers, herbs, and spices from around the world that we extract in our own workshop. Chockriti gourmet natural chocolates are true to their origin, void of added sugar, butter, vegetable oil, corn syrup, invertase, alcohol, or artificial flavorings. All chocolates are further labeled with the calorie count along with nutritional information.

2. Sustainability

The cacao brands we source from are both sustainable and fair-trade. Please see this video of our visit to the sustainable organic Single Origin Indian cacao farm in 2019.

They ensure great emphasis on quality control throughout the entire chocolate-making process. The cacao beans of India are of the Trinitario and Forastero varieties. Below are the pictures of the visit o the Indian far during the harvest season.

The cacao beans of the Belgian brand come from Ecuador, Ghana, and Ivory Coast. To get more information about the brand's sustainable model, please click here: Callebaut With a simple QR scan and by entering the unique batch code on every pack, we can trace the chocolate back to the farmer communities where they source the cocoa beans.

At Chockriti, the waste of our chocolate production is used to create aromatic natural preservative-free soaps and candles. Due to the cacao butter in the chocolate, the soaps are gentle and skin moisturizing. The candles are paraffin-free and eco-friendly. More information and pictures soon as we launch in retail.

3. Craftsmanship and Techniques That Elevate Chocolates

Craftsmanship plays a vital role in creating luxury chocolates. Expert chocolatiers possess an exceptional level of skill and experience, using traditional techniques combined with innovative ideas. Our chocolates at Chockriti are made in small batches, using traditional techniques with meticulous diligence. The time-consuming process helps us create perfect pieces of art in chocolate.

At Chockriti, we temper chocolates by hand in small batches and create thin shells by hand painting. We do not use pre-made industrial fillings or artificial flavors for our chocolates. We tediously extract our flavors from the whole natural ingredients by brewing the overnight in cream and straining the flavored cream for our ganache the next day. From tempering the chocolate to creating abstract designs with art brushes, every step in the confectionary process is executed by the chocolatier with precision.

Rooted in India's culture and traditions, Chockriti brings chocolates that reflect the spirit of India. Flavors reconstructed from delicacies of Indian festivals and cuisines like the Banaras Paan, RoohAfza, Kulfi, Thandai, Sandalwood, Mogra, and Jamun.

The authentic aromas are tedious extractions of fresh brews of organic dried flowers, teas, herbs, and spices kept overnight in French cream. We do not add artificial essences, invertase, corn syrup, or use pre-made fillings for our bars or bonbons.

5. Exquisite Packaging That Reflects Elegance

We are constantly creating beautiful innovative creations inspired by nature, culture, and world cuisines. However, for me, beauty is the full experience of all the senses not just how they look. It is also the aromas of the finest ingredients when you open the box, the sounds of snap when breaking a good well-tempered chocolate bar, feeling the textures of the soft elegant packaging when opening, and most importantly the taste of chocolate themselves. We aspire to create a full experience and say true to our brand name Chockriti-"Choc" means Chocolate and "Kriti" means Fine Work of Art.
