Have had some great chocolate from ArribaNoir but several months ago the location closed. He used to use only a very specific selection of chocolate beans.

Excellent hand made chocolate lots of the best imported cacao, it's bizarre to ask for a person to have to write 100 character minimum. The chocolate is great.

Wow! FANTASTIC! All of these chocolates are hand dipped and to die for. This is my 2nd visit, all the way from California. The wide assortment of nuts and fruits are terrific. My favorites are the cranbury nut mixes. Yum!!!

A real gem. The best dark chocolate to savor with port, red (sweet) sparkling or heavy duty red from Rhone, Barossa Valley or California Zin/Primativo. Go for the bars, but try some of the artisan creation. Also perfect cure for Sunday morning hangover with Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee

ArribaNoir Chocolatier is awesome! I love that this family-run business doesn’t try to do everything, but rather sticks to what it loves and does best – 75% dark chocolate surrounding all kinds of delicious treats. The truffles are gorgeous to look at, and even better to eat. They have substantial size and density, a real heft to them, and I... More

I'm not a very big dark chocolate fan, but the variety/quality of the chocolate at ArribaNoir was unbelievable. Colette was a HUGE help in picking out the perfect chocolate for my taste buds. Everything that I've gotten has been more than satisfying. From the truffles (which are my favorite) to the chocolate covered fruit I've never been disappointed!!!

I am normally not a big dark chocolate fan but Colette completely changed my mind. Everything I've ordered from Arriba Noir was freshly prepared, the quality of their chocolate was Amazing. From the assorted chocolate covered fruit to the chocolate covered graham crackers, I enjoyed it all.

You will need to pay a visit to the Millstone, NJ store to really appreciate the dark chocolate and confections produced by ArribaNoir Chocolatier.

Description
Whether watching your favorite TV cooking show or perhaps observing a gourmet chef create a unique and decadent chocolate dessert, you constantly hear: "make sure to use the best quality chocolate you can find." But what is the "best quality" chocolate? Where does it come from? Fine chocolate, like fine wine, results from the combination of many factors such as geography, weather, ground conditions and type of cacao beans. As with wine, chocolate can vary with characteristics of flavor and fragrance, distinguished by the senses as woody, fruity, floral, musky, spicy, earthy, silky, tarty etc. What does "Single-Origin, Ecuador Arriba Dark Chocolate" mean? Single-Origin means that this chocolate is produced only from cacao beans originated from a single geographic region. Ecuador & Cacao: Did you know Ecuador is recognized and ranked as the source for the finest quality cacao in the world? Although Ecuador only yields 3% of total world production, due to its bio-natural resources and unique geographic conditions, Ecuador produces and exports about 70% of total world "high-quality and aroma" cacao. This high quality and scent soft flavor cacao is known as "Arriba"; a synonym for the finest cacao. Arriba is admired by chocolate makers and artisans, chefs and demanding consumers alike, worldwide. "Arriba" was a location given by local traders to a Swiss chocolatier over a century ago when asked where he could find the "fine aroma and flavored bean." He was instructed to go "del rio arriba," or up the river. Arriba Cacao: Not all Ecuadorian cacao receives the ARRIBA certification. World chocolate manufacturers strategically blend this scarcely available cacao with inferior cacaos to enhance flavor and scent of their chocolates. While the flavor and quality might improve, it is far from the fullness and quality of 100% Arriba cacao. ArribaNoir Chocolatier, in a meticulous process, has carefully selected the finest Ecuadorian Arriba cacao and combined it with over a 100 years of knowledge and expertise. Through the talent of our master artisan chocolatiers, we have crafted the world's premier gourmet Arriba chocolate. Our chocolate is produced using only 100% single-origin Arriba cacao and cane sugar: nothing else. We refuse to add any flavor changing natural or artificial ingredients such as vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom, coffee, etc, to change, disguise, or "enhance" what is already natural and perfect! Whether you eat it straight up or use it in your favorite recipes, we guarantee and stand behind our Single-Origin Arriba Dark Chocolate. Our mantra is not a slogan, but a part of our DNA: Our Passion is Chocolate! Indulge and Enjoy.
