We’re a multiple award-winning chocolate maker located in Sudbury, Massachusetts.  We search throughout Latin America to find the very best single-origin cacao beans and use those beans to handcraft our chocolate.  Because our beans come from only one farm or region and we never alkalize or use additives, our chocolate reflects the incredible true flavors of the beans from which it’s made.  We also take the exceptional step of freshly pressing our own single-origin cocoa butter from the same beans we use to make our bars.  The result is intensely flavorful and exceptionally smooth, true single-origin chocolate.

Beyond Good.png

We’re Beyond Good: both in name and practice. And we’re redefining quality and sustainability standards in the chocolate industry. The typical chocolate supply chain usually has anywhere from 3-5 middlemen sitting between the cocoa farmer and the chocolate maker. That doesn’t work for farmers and it doesn’t work for us. So we put our money where our mouth is. We built a factory in Madagascar. And we built it as close as possible to our cocoa farmers. Making chocolate where the cocoa grows is our burning desire in life.

We recently launched our new line of three bars made with Ugandan cocoa, the beginning of another direct supply chain: https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2020/01/16/1971713/0/en/Beyond-Good-Sweetens-its-Offering-with-Three-New-Chocolate-Bars.html

We’ll be offering 20% a Baking and Ice Cream Chocolate and Vanilla Pack ahead of Father’s Day (June 21st), and National Ice Cream Day (July 17th).

Established simply from a love of chocolate, Mark Merritt began experimenting with how to make chocolate in 2013. His hobby led him to explore the origin of the cacao bean and how flavors develop to culminate in a bar of chocolate. In a day when less is more, Mark discovered the essence of bean to bar is ultimately in the process, a proper balance of both chemistry and physics. With limited ingredients- cacao beans, cocoa butter, cane sugar- each aspect of the process, enhances the unique character of a cacao bean.

Mark named his chocolate passion after another passion, his best friend and wife, Maribea (pronounced merry bee).

Maribea brings chocolate enthusiasts an exclusive taste experience found only in a bean-to-bar product. With cacao beans growing only in countries up to twenty-two degrees north and south of the equator, all aspects of the cacao beans’ journey offer a distinct result with each batch of chocolate produced. Maribea produces chocolate for both retail and wholesale.

What is fine chocolate?

Fine chocolate is defined in terms of its flavor, texture, and appearance, as well as how its limited ingredients, high cocoa and low sugar content, are sourced and processed.

Sensory: Fine chocolate makers are committed to coaxing the unique flavors from each bean, allowing the consumer to experience complex flavors from the terroir of various regions and countries. Textures should be smooth and creamy, unless purposely creating unrefined chocolate.

Visual: Fine chocolate professionals are committed to creating stunning visual experiences through perfectly finished products which are often artfully designed.

Processed: Fine chocolate makers and chocolatiers use artisan methods to create minimally processed chocolate with flavor complexity.

Sourcing: With a commitment to the farmer, fine chocolate makers use ethical practices to source the highest quality flavor beans and cocoa, often from single countries of origin and individual growers.
