Jasper & Myrtle

Jasper & Myrtle Chocolates is a small chocolate maker based in Canberra, Australia. Created by Li Peng Monroe, the name was chosen because of its Australian origins. Jasper is a semi-precious stone found in Western Australia where she spent many years, while Myrtle is commonly found around Northern New South Wales where Peter, her partner and co-owner of Jasper and Myrtle, comes from.

With a magnificently simple goal of creating the most delicious chocolates they can, all of Jasper and Myrtle's chocolates are handmade from cacao beans ethically sourced from Papua New Guinea in particular the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.

The beans are roasted in house to bring out their flavour, husked and ground into a rich cocoa liquor before other ingredients are added and this mix is allowed to grind for at least 24 hours. The chocolate is made in small batches to ensure that every bar is perfect.
