Amedei is an artisan chocolate manufacturing company located in Pontedera in the Tuscany region of Italy. Their products range from chocolate bars to truffles and pralines. Their award-winning chocolate bars use single-origin and single varietal cocoa beans. One of their products, Amedei Porcelana, is known as the world’s most expensive chocolate. They obtain the cocoa from a Venezuelan region called Chuao; it has been called the best of the world in 2005 and in 2006 by the Academy of Chocolate, although every year this association elects a new chocolate as the best one, being this only a one-year lasting award. Amedei chocolate is also used in making the most expensive cupcake, the Golden Phoenix, which is made by Bloomsbury's, a boutique cafe in Dubai.
