Heart Pharmacy is proud to introduce international award-winning Sirene chocolate at our Shelbourne location. This Victoria chocolatier is part of the growing “bean-to-bar” movement. Like many things ‘new’, bean-to-bar is actually a return to how people first experienced chocolate.
Sirene Artisan Chocolate Makers handcraft small batches of chocolate in their Victoria workshop. They source cocoa beans directly from farmers in Guatemala, Ecuador, Brazil, Madagascar and Tanzania. Once the beans arrive they are culled, roasted, ground, conched, tempered, poured into molds and then wrapped.
Conformity is never an artisan chocolate maker’s endgame. Instead they embrace, cultivate and celebrate variety. They understand that every harvest, even from the same region, will produce a unique taste experience so processes are continually altered to harness the full flavour of the beans. They take big risks and they’re rewarded by big results. Sirene chocolate will introduce your palate to flavours that you’ve never experienced with a run-of-the-mill candy bar.
The ingredients in these carefully crafted bars are simple — cocoa beans and cane sugar. Sirene’s only exception to this is their milk chocolate bar, which is still dark chocolate but with a little milk added. There are absolutely no chemicals or additives. It’s the real deal.
Come into our Shelbourne location and treat yourself to the complexity, depth and richness of Sirene chocolate. Put a piece on your tongue and let it melt. Guaranteed, you’ll anticipate more. Pair it with one of our international selection of small-batch artisan coffees for an exquisite after dinner treat.
