Sol Cacao is an artisan “bean-to-bar” chocolate manufacturer that crafts single origin chocolate bars in the South Bronx (Port Morris). Founded by brothers Dominic, Nicholas and Daniel, the company strives to create the finest quality chocolate by thoroughly understanding every step in the chocolate manufacturing process, from growing cacao pods to crafting the bars.
Growing up in the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago, the Maloney brothers were always surrounded by cacao trees. They enjoyed eating chocolate made from trees that they had grown and picked themselves. Cacao and chocolate are staples of the Caribbean culture and an inherent part of the Maloney family livelihood.
Upon arriving to the United States, the brothers realized that the same quality of chocolate that they were able to enjoy back home was scarce in America. They decided to bring to market a type of chocolate that elevates taste, coupled with a level of unparalleled refinement and quality.
Sol Cacao offers three chocolate bars that are made from only two ingredients: cacao beans and raw cane sugar. The company prides itself in both the quality of its product as well as its environmental, ethical, and social values. These include sustainable organic farming practices, environmental preservation, and ethical sourcing of raw materials.
