Richard von Geusau has a passion ... it is chocolate ... not just good chocolate but great chocolate.
The creation of his fine artisanal product begins with the best couvertures from Belgium. This chocolate is distinguished by its high cocoa content and absence of artificial flavours and vegetable fats. Each chocolate is meticulously handmade using only the finest original ingredients – fresh cream, roasted nuts and exotic liqueurs, to mention a few. Specifically, and in contrast to these more traditional chocolates, the range boasts those spectacular combinations of spicy and aromatic ingredients and flavours that have become the Von Geusau legend.
Not least of the benefits from this exquisite chocolaterie is the passion for perfection and personal attention at all levels from the man behind the product ... Belgian trained Richard von Geusau ... a true entrepreneur and absolute master of his art.
Greyton has adopted him and so have many others, including some of the country’s finest hotels and wine estates. Richard recently worked with the masterful Kevin Arnold at Waterford Wines…a collaboration that resulted in a world class wine and chocolate pairing. And now the fascinating options of branded whisky and chocolate are also underway.
The romantic 15 year Von Geusau journey has delighted many. It is a journey we all need to partake in at some point in our lives.
Von Geusau is chocolate from the heart.
