Origin, Circa 1884 Southeastern France. The Bonnat Family are fourth generation chocolatiers, not milliners. Bonnat is French for cap. Their family tradition has spanned many lifetimes dedicated to the excellence of making something so simple, but gives so many people pleasure all around the globe. The very part of the process that makes their chocolates so special is going the extent of importing the very best cocoa beans and roasting them themselves in their factory; such as in the Java Bar - the best java beans are imported from Indonesia for this velvety smooth bar. Their dark roasted flavors go hand-in-hand, much in the same way a well made pot of french coffee is made.
