Lovebean is in the business of pure and potent chocolate. We use only 100% Organic ingredients in our spreads and we always sweeten with delicious low-glycemic Coconut Nectar. Since our products are Virgin Coconut Oil-based not only are they a healthier option to your typical chocolate spreads and bars, but this allows the texture to vary from thick and creamy when cooler to completely liquid and perfect for dipping when warmer. You’ve never had so much fun with chocolate!
The idea for Lovebean sprouted in the lush landscapes of Costa Rica where I was living amidst playful howler monkeys, beautiful beaches, and oodles of cacao plantations. The raw materials were there, but finding a truly organic, healthy chocolate bar was still not an option at the local markets.
Setting out to make Costa Rica’s best chocolate bar, I soon discovered that it is a very delicate art that requires lots of fancy machinery and therefore a large investment which was not an option at the time. After a few weeks tinkering with different ideas in the kitchen, my first ‘chocolate bar-in-a-jar’ was born.
It was a win-win situation. A delicious dark chocolate flavor with all the added benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil that was spreadable and versatile and virtually immune to the Costa Rican heat. Response at the local markets was immediately enthusiastic. A few months later I headed home to Austin to share this new superfood fudge with all the good people Stateside.
Two years down the road now and I continue to make each batch of Lovebean with love by hand in our kitchen in lovely Austin, TX. My family has joined in on the fun as well, with my sister around town rocking demos at Whole Foods, Dad doing the books, Mom as Chief Marketing Director…we’re having a blast and hope you will enjoy the fruits of our efforts to bring you a truly guilt-free chocolate!
