Bahen & Co Chocolate Maker

At Bahen & Co. the chocolate making machinery comes from another time; a time when life was slower and the final produce was only as good as the original raw ingredients. Josh Bahen travelled the world to find it, and to find beans from heirloom cacao trees.

Bahen & Co. Chocolate is made using only cacao beans stone ground in the circa 1910 Guitard Melangeur grinder, and organic cane sugar. Applying skills garnered in previous careers as winemakers, Josh and Jacqui Bahen are compelled to make chocolate that expresses the individuality of the beans they source from traditional growers in Papua New Guinea, South America and South East Asia. Like the crafting of a fine wine from a single vineyard estate, the provenance of their beans displays distinct characteristics and flavours unique to place.

At the Margaret River Farmers’ Market, Josh and Jacqui Bahen share their passion for cacao, recipes for chocolate and offer tastings. Bahen & Co. brings the art of chocolate making back to a gentle pace and explores the wonders of the world’s favourite bean.
