Amano Cinder Toffee With Nibs

This honeycomb with cacao nibs is so addictive, you'll be thankful it's so difficult to buy.

Amano Morobe Papua New Guinea

Amano's latest (and greatest) offering, made with Papua New Guinea beans and a whole lot of love.

Amano Dos Rios

Amano Dos Rios (Two Rivers) is a 70% dark chocolate made with beans sourced from the Dominican Republic.

Amano Chuao and Truffles

Starting off my journey were the berries, with some saltiness sparking up the halfway point. It’s deep like a black ocean...

Amano Cuyagua

Amano Madagascar & Ocumare

A pair of wonderful artisan, bean-to-bar dark chocolates from Amano.
