Ah! So many answers for this. In short. It’s a movement and a way of making chocolate. From the cacao beans to the final chocolate bar all in the same place.
We like this description from ‘bar and cocoa‘:
The term bean to bar chocolate started as a way for small chocolate makers to distinguish their chocolate from both chocolatiers, and also mass produced chocolate. Starting around 2005, craft chocolate makers began operating in the small batch territory, some producing just a few hundred bars a month. After buying small quantities of cacao, they were cleaning, roasting, cracking, winnowing, and grinding the cacao beans themselves.
They began calling this process “bean to bar,” meaning from cacao bean to chocolate bar, as shorthand for the long process of micro-batch chocolate making, whereas chocolatiers melt pre-made chocolate to make chocolate confections.
