About Calm Cocoa:

Calm Cocoa use responsibly sourced single origin chocolate to help you create little joyful and mindful moments in the day.

Did you know that many ‘hot chocolates’ are mainly sugar with a bit of cocoa powder thrown in? Calm Cocoa is always at least 90% chocolate - and often more. The chocolate is flaked on a much loved hand-powered rotary grater to create an easily meltable blend.

Calm Cocoa are a small batch maker, blending and packing their mixes by hand, and without any single use plastic.

Depending on the flavour mix, Calm Cocoa might have a little organic cacao powder added to help thicken the blend as it simmers, plus a dash of caramelly organic coconut sugar to balance and bring out natural flavours of the chocolate.

Wherever possible, Meredith uses organic and sustainable ingredients, designed to complement rather than overwhelm the natural flavours of the chocolate. This includes organic cacao powder, organic coconut sugar and amazing sea salt from Halen Mon in North Wales.

As well as being a meditation teacher, Meredith is an affirmed chocolate geek. She has tasted MANY chocolates over the years, including during her stint working as a Chocolate Tour Guide in London and as a judge for the Academy of Chocolate Awards.

Meredith is often asked if she makes her own chocolate - and the answer is no! It’s actually pretty complicated to make good quality chocolate from the beans (which includes grinding the beans over 3 to 5 days) so instead she uses some of the very best couverture* chocolate available.

She has incorporate one of her favourite brands, Pump Street Chocolate, in both her making and meditation sessions almost since the beginning of setting up her company, Food At Heart. And this is the chocolate that features in most of the Calm Cocoa blends.

Apart from the fact that the chocolate is truly delicious, Pump Street is a very ethical and environmentally-friendly company. The team work with a carefully selected set of cacao plantations and co-operatives, fairly and sustainably sourcing their beans. They produce their chocolate in small batches in a fantastic (and aromatic) chocolate factory in Orford, Suffolk on the east coast of England.

Meredith currently uses four of Pump Street’s single origin chocolates in the Calm Cocoa blends.

The other main chocolate maker used is the Golden Bean-winning Chocolat Madagascar.

Chocolat Madagascar is a tree-to-bar chocolate maker, creating bars in Madagascar from its own cacao plantations. It’s fairly unusual for fine quality chocolate makers to create chocolate in the country of the cacao origin and this process means more money stays in the country where the beans are grown. They also nurture their cacao under rainforest canopy so that important biodiverse landscapes aren’t cleared to create chocolate.
