17 Rocks Chocolates is a small independent OEM Australian chocolate factory that makes chocolate from imported cacao beans grown in Papua New Guinea. They have a small outlet store at their factory where the public are welcome to come and try their chocolate. Visitors are immersed in the smell and taste of pure chocolate. The smells and sounds are always changing depending on what is being manufactured. They could be roasting beans, grinding nibs, milling hot chocolate or tempering their delicious chocolate.
When they make the chocolate they limit the effects of the manufacturing on the super properties of the cacao. This is because both the genetic differences between cocoa varieties, the ingredients added and the methods used in the different stages of making chocolate effect the finished chocolate. Each of these must be carefully controlled to achieve high‐quality, nutritionally rich chocolate.
