In 1883, a Belgian chocolatier journeyed to Africa’s Gold Coast in search of the finest cocoa for a new kind of chocolate. In the equatorial sunshine of present-day Ghana, he found hardy, flavorful cocoa beans that were brought to life as Cote d’Or chocolate through patience, craftsmanship and unwavering standards of quality.
The African elephant on the Côte d’Or label quickly became Belgium’s recognized symbol of fine chocolate. In 1965, Côte d’Or earned the title of Fournisseur Breveté de la Cour de Belgique — official supplier to the Belgian royal family. After more than a century as one of Europe’s most coveted taste experiences, the exquisite taste and texture of Côte d’Or chocolates are yours to discover all over again on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
Fine chocolate gains its taste, aroma and silky texture from an intensive blending method called conching; Cote d’Or uses a time-tested, proprietary method for precisely heating and cooling the chocolate confection to produce the perfect “snap”. Fine Belgian chocolate confection breaks without rumbling, melts smoothly in the mouth, and rewards the palate with a nuanced experience comparable to drinking fine wine. This tradition finds its highest expression in Côte d’Or.
