Where Art & Design: meet Chocolate and Tea.
We spent over a year making batch after batch of teas blends, coffee beverages, and chocolate confections, without making a single cent. We wanted to do our raw ingredients justice. With these raw ingredients, we chose a single variable and controlled everything else.
We learnt how a few degrees centigrade difference in temperature, or an extra 30 seconds of processing affected the batches’ flavour. Money was not our ultimate goal. Our only objective from this exercise was to crack the code and reach perfection, financial results would naturally come after.
In choosing our supplies, we advocate for ethical labor practices, fair wages, and healthy working conditions.
