CONTOUR CHOCOLATE Founded by James Nichols after training as a chef, whilst working as a chocolatier in London the idea behind Contour chocolate began; to create smooth bean to bar chocolate discs in a range of flavours. Sourcing heirloom Nicaraguan cocoa beans and flavouring with whole natural ingredients, such as whole hazelnuts, peanuts, coffee beans, passion fruit and red peppercorns. Contour Chocolate roast the cocoa beans, nuts and coffee beans in house to ensure freshness and refine all ingredients into the chocolate for a smooth texture and natural taste. Care was taken to source all ingredients for their highest quality and buying directly from producers where possible. To create a sense of theatre, 20 discs are packed into an elegant pull-out draw box, perfect as a gift or to share amongst family and friends at a dinner party.
