History South African-born Gabriel Myburgh left a career in corporate law in 2011 to set up Gabriel Chocolate as Western Australia’s first bean to bar chocolate maker(1). Frustration at the dearth of good quality chocolate in the state(2) saw the self-taught chocolatier seek out premium fine flavour cacao beans from producers in such diverse regions as Ecuador, Peru, Ghana, Madagascar, Papua New Guinea (East New Britain), Indonesia (Java), Vietnam and Rio Caribe and Chuao in Venezuela.(3) Many farmers in these regions produce high-quality beans but their operations are often too small-scale to win contracts to supply large chocolate companies like Cadburys.(4) Myburgh quickly realised industry success, winning two gold medals, three silver and a bronze at the Royal Melbourne Fine Food awards in 2012.(5) Since then, his creations have “won countless gold medals at shows across Australia”.(6) In more recent years, the business has collaborated with other local boutique brands such as Yahava Coffee, making the latter’s chocolate bars (that blend chocolate and coffee).(7)

Technique A bean-to-bar company List of bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturers produces chocolate by processing cocoa beans into a product in-house. Each bean is hand sorted, carefully roasted, and immediately winnowed to produce cocoa nibs good enough to eat by themselves.(8) This is in contrast to chocolatiers who make their wares from ‘couverture’, a high-quality chocolate which is melted and flavoured.(9)
