Mast have worked with legendary chefs including Thomas Keller of Per se and the French Laundry and Heston Blumenthal of the Fat Duck.

Bean to Bar Chocolate Making

Some of their most popular Mast Brother flavour profiles are their coffee chocolate, dark chocolate, milk, almond butter chocolate, and sea salt chocolate. Dark undertones and the deep colour from long roasting gives a unique flavour to the dark chocolate by Mast Brothers. For subtle flavors, the California almond butter chocolate is a perfect choice and perfect chocolate for vegans. Sea salt is a unique blend of cacao with marine salt, the salty flavor of the sea salt flavored chocolate helps bring out the amazingly sweet and bitter taste of the Mast chocolates.

Best Artisan Chocolate

Milk Chocolate is your childhood favourite with a lot less sugar and more organic buttermilk for a creamy smooth texture. The coffee chocolate tastes like a mocha with coffee from Stumptown Coffee.

While Mast Brothers popularized the bean to bar chocolate bar, the process is not that well understood and in essence means a firm being involved in the entire chocolate manufacturing process from sourcing the best beans possible from local farms or co-operatives, drying, transporting and manufacturing the chocolate in-house to ensure strict quality control.
