Ian Matthew Baker - Original Beans

"One thing that has always been a big part of my education and career is "respect for ingredients''. This is one of the main reasons I use Original Beans, a brand who respects not only its product but also the people behind it. Tending plantations, farmers and creators of some of the finest chocolate in the world."


Ian is an English born Pâtissier an d Chocolatier and freelance consultant with over 23 years experience in the industry.
