Indulgence to begin ‘Bean-to-Bar’ production

Last updated on July 3rd, 2019 at 07:24 pm

Indulgence Chocolatiers will begin small-batch production of “Bean-to-Bar” chocolate at its facility at 211 S. Second St. in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood.

The term “Bean-to-Bar” describes the process of sourcing, roasting, grinding and processing cocoa beans into chocolate. While Indulgence will continue to use the finest blended bean and single origin chocolate from around the world to make most of its confections, over the past year the company has invested in knowledge and equipment that will allow it to offer a line of Bean-to-Bar chocolate bars providing consumers with a different type of experience.

Indulgence owner Julie Waterman said, “While complex and relatively expensive, producing from Bean-to-Bar will allow us more control over the taste of the chocolate. Our Bean-to-Bar products will enable customers to really experience the ‘terroir’ of the beans along with the unique flavor profiles chosen by our chocolate makers.”

Waterman added, “At Indulgence, we are always striving to provide unique ways for Milwaukee to explore and enjoy fine chocolate, and this new aspect of our business is another example of our dedication to that goal.”

Indulgence plans to debut its first line of Bean-to-Bar chocolate bars in the next several weeks. Theses single origin bars featuring relatively high cocoa percentages will be available at Indulgence’s stores in Walker’s Point and Shorewood, as well as at retailers throughout Wisconsin.
