Growing up in the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago, the Maloney brothers were always surrounded by cacao trees and enjoyed eating chocolate made from the trees that they had grown and picked themselves. Cacao and chocolate are staples of the Caribbean culture and an inherent part of the Maloney family livelihood. Upon arriving to the United States, the brothers realized that the same quality of chocolate that they were able to enjoy back home was highly scarce in America and decided to bring to the market a type of chocolate that elevates the taste, coupled with a level of unparalleled refinement and quality to the selections available.
