Choosing Tcho

Choosing Tcho

Let’s take a quick look at a new brand here at BakeDeco, Tcho Chocolate. A mouthful we know, but after reading this article you might consider getting a handful of their products.

Tcho is a fairly new company that is making quite a splash in the pastry world. Tcho products feature Fair Trade Certified ingredients and are Vegan and Kosher. Tcho also has an amazing initiative called Tcho Source. 

“TCHO Source is our unique program for partnering with cacao producers and research institutions worldwide to create a better cacao bean because better cacao means better chocolate.

And we’re not just talking about the quality and taste of the cacao beans; we’re talking about how they’re grown, harvested, roasted, and moved along every point along the supply chain. We care about the people behind cacao, from the farmer to the roaster and all the communities in-between.” (



This is how most of us describe what chocolate tastes like because the most abundantly used cacao is from west Africa, which is very chocolatey in flavor.
