Kiama Chocolate Company
My name is Shaye Lucassen and Kiama Chocolate Company is my baby. Actually, it’s not my only “baby” – I am a Kiama businesswoman and mum to an ever-growing family.
All my chocolate is handmade in small batches. It’s called “bean-to-bar” chocolate making, as I buy fresh dried cacao beans, roasting and grinding them to make chocolate.
Kiama Chocolate Company uses premium sundried cacao beans ethically sourced from farms in the Solomon Islands through Makira Gold, a privately funded social enterprise.
