BACK TO THE ORIGINS,
FLAVORS WITH CHARACTER
BRAINE LE COMTE, BELGIUM
From the start, 15 years ago, Thibaut has worked
and participated in the creation of his family’s artisan fine chocolate factory, known by the Brainois for its exceptional quality Belgian recipes.
Perfectionist and purist, Thibaut has put his
artisan passion to prepare all recipes from A to Z, including making chocolate from beans!
Pastry chef and maître-chocolatier,
Thibaut has used his talent to stand out natural flavors of cocoa in his creations.
After years of working with Colombian farmers in developing quality fine and flavor cocoa for exports, Patricia met Thibaut: a careful chocolate-maker, willing to be a patient buyer and trade partner for producers.
Paths and similar ways of working in the cocoa/chocolate world came together, and Patricia became a part of Legast Artisan team.
In our chocolates, Patricia plays an important role in establishing varieties, post- harvest procedures, and building lasting relationships with Latin- American farmers and customers.
US - LA MAISON
Quality and true flavors
In Legast artisan chocolatier©, we trace the origins of cocoa, visiting and evaluating plantations from the land where beans first grew and developed fine aromas: Latin America.
We craft our fine chocolates rescuing the most delicious character flavors from indigenous times. Our recipes, from the start 15 years ago, have been carefully conceived with quality ingredients and artisan work to develop real natural flavors.
We are all about quality and true flavors, and we believe in the benefits of a direct-collaborative trade with our sustainable local farmer-partners.
We hope to grant you a journey across flavors, people and places while building with you as well, an alternative trade- collaboration model. We trust that together, we can contribute to local farmers' better living, conservation of biodiversity and sustainable production.
