TO'AK, Quito, Ecuador

To’ak exclusively produces small-batch editions of single-origin Ecuadorian dark chocolate, with an emphasis on terroir, heirloom genetics, and cask-aging. To’ak prides itself on being the first tree-to-bar chocolate maker to comprehensively explore the science and the art of aging dark chocolate. To’ak’s mission is to transform the way that the world experiences dark chocolate, elevating its making and tasting onto the level of vintage wine and aged whisky.

  • Known as the most expensive chocolate in the world, To’ak Chocolate was born in 2007 from the minds of Jerry Toth and Carl Schweizer.
  • Made from bean to bar in Ecuador, To’ak Chocolate is sourced exclusively from cacao pods that match the morphological and color profile of heirloom Nacional cacao referenced from DNA testing. This cacao was awarded the Heirloom designation from the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Fund in 2016.
  • From the exclusive quality of the chocolate to its exquisite packaging, To’ak Chocolate offers the most luxurious craft chocolate experience from purchasing to unwrapping, and finally savoring. In their most iconic chocolate bars, connoisseurs are presented with a precious wooden box, tasting instructions and tools.

  • To’ak has been the continuous recipient of press releases, media exposure and dedicated articles for its bold price tag, always justified by craftsmanship, ethical sourcing, high-quality raw materials, long ageing processes and unparallel packaging.
  • All To’ak Chocolate bars are aged in barrels of whisky, tequila, sherry or bourbon, so that the cocoa nibs can absorb the enchanting aromas of these liquors without the alcohol.
  • To’ak works hand-in-hand with a small group of cacao growers in Piedra de Plata and pays them the highest price per pound in all of Ecuador.

Recipes are designed in collaboration with world-renowned food educator and culinary alchemist, Charles Michel. Ingredients are sourced from small family farms and community cooperatives committed to preserving ancestral foods and endangered biomes. Each package features artwork from some of the most innovative and promising young artists in the region.

To’ak chocolate is made with Heirloom Nacional cacao and produced entirely in Ecuador, from tree to bar.
