About Hummingbird Chocolate Maker

After working with farmers and food processors from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, Drew and Erica Gilmour became intrigued by everything to do with chocolate. What began as a hobby at home, turned into a passion in 2012 with the advent of Hummingbird Chocolate and success at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market. 

Hummingbird sources the finest quality cacao beans from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras and Peru, paying sustainable prices to farmers.  We craft single origin chocolate, highlighting and celebrating the natural flavour characteristics in each bean, adding just organic cane sugar or local maple sugar and a little bit of cocoa butter.   

We’re industrious, not industrial.  Our chocolate is made in the small town of Almonte,  just outside of Ottawa, Ontario.  Our chocolate is crafted in small batches, slowly, taking about a month to go from the raw bean to a finished bar.  It’s definitely worth the wait.
