Cacao and coffee in perfect harmony. This lightly roasted filter coffee pairs beautifully with our milk chocolate. The coffee is a beautiful Organic Ethiopia, sourced and roasted by Tin Donkey Coffee (Lara's Dad!), who we share a roaster with here in Glasgow.

A little bit about us:
We are Cameron and Lara, the makers behind Bare Bones Chocolate. We have been obsessed with specialty coffee and food for the last 10 years, and that passion quickly translated into chocolate about 3 years ago. We dreamed of having our own chocolate company and can't think of a better way to spend our days.
With a passion for coffee and bicycles, Cam is a mechanical engineer and is behind the precision and focus that goes into being a chocolate maker. He is constantly tweaking and designing new machinery and makes sure the chocolate tastes better with every batch.
Lara is a food photographer and chef. She is the person behind the handwritten notes in each order, curates the Bare Bones Instagram and wraps each bar in the beautiful brown paper.
