Cocoa growing on our own estate in St Lucia

A passion for CoCoA at the rabot estate on the island of St Lucia we’re doing something that very few chocolate makers do – we grow cocoa. It’s the very origin of chocolate and getting this close to it is where our passion has naturally taken us. But the vast majority of cocoa is grown by small holders who can struggle to make a living, which led us to create a unique programme of Engaged Ethics.

The Purist’s Library Half a kilo of some of the rarest and best tasting chocolate around. A balanced selection of 7 Purist Bars from our range of single estate and single region chocolate. Presented in a sleek bookcase style box for the true aficionado. Alcohol-free. 525g.

ref 1724


It’s a hands-on, sleeves-rolled-up approach to helping cocoa growing communities in Ghana and St Lucia. And with sustained investments of expertise, sweat and passion we’ve seen tangible results in helping to revitalise cocoa growing and improve livelihoods. You can experience the full authenticity of Rabot Estate cocoa and other rare chocolates in our Purist range. And you can find out more about our programme of Engaged Ethics at

Purist’s Collections

4 Purist bars grouped by theme and tied in grosgrain ribbon. A great way to pursue your tasting interests or to send to foodie friends. All alcohol-free.
