Welcome to my site!
I'm Anisa. I'm a chocolate maker based in Ely Cambridgeshire. I first started making chocolates in 2013 to get me through the gruelling post-graduate job hunt. Even after Ianding the jobs I wanted, I kept coming back to chocolate. Finally after a year of maternity leave I decided to follow my gut and make chocolate my part time occupation, (second to the full time occupation of motherhood)!
When I started Anisa & Chocolate back in 2017, I specialised in luxury, Artisan chocolates using fine, ethical couverture.
Back then I was selling bonbons, truffles and bars at various speciality markets and online. But my quest for more ethical chocolate led me into the craft chocolate industry. Since then, I have learnt to make chocolate right from the cocoa bean, joining the tiny but growing number of bean to bar chocolate makers in the UK.
I make micro-batches of chocolates with premimum cocoa beans from Ecuador, India, Peru and the Philippines, among other origins.
Ethics and quality are at the heart of what I do. I make sure that my cocoa beans are transparently sourced, from family farms and estates where the farmers are paid a premium price for their crop. You can learn more about where my cocoa beans come from by reading the descriptions of each chocolate bar on my products page.
