The Story of Paul And Mike

 

Named after two Latin American fine cocoa farmers, Paul And Mike would love to show you how great fine flavour chocolate can be. We believe farming and fermenting cocoa is both art as well as science. That the purest chocolate doesn't have to be bitter. And that everyone deserves great chocolate.

We are headquartered in Kochi, Kerala and grow and ferment cocoa on our own farms in Kochi and Coimbatore. Also, we source wet cocoa beans from progressive farmers in Kerala and Andhra and take care of the entire post-harvest operations. Our chocolate making unit is based in Kochi, just a km away from our cocoa farm. You are most welcome to drop by anytime for a farm-to-bar tour and learn from our agronomists and chocolate-makers.

SUSTAINABILITY

By 2023, we aim to be Carbon Negative meaning every Paul And Mike bar you eat will help remove CO2 from the environment and will help secure our children's future. Just in case you needed a second reason to eat more chocolate.
We grow and ferment cocoa on our own farms in Kochi and Coimbatore. Also, we source wet cocoa beans from progressive farmers in Idukki, Kerala; Pollachi, Tamilnadu and West Godavari region in Andhra Pradesh. We pay a very high premium, far higher than the Fairtrade premium. This premium incentivizes the farmers to harvest and ferment cocoa beans as per Paul And Mike’s exacting standards. These fine flavor cocoa beans later become our fine flavour chocolates, loved and valued by our customers.
