Winner: Silver, Northwest Chocolate Awards 2018
Review: Chocolate journalist (@thechocolatejournalist), Sharon Terenzi, recently reviewed the bar saying, "You don't become a multiple award-winner by luck. Smell of honey, incredible smooth texture (without being too creamy), notes of fudge, brownie, earthy brown butter, an incredible clean mouth and a long chocolatey aftertaste. Can't find one defect even if I wanted to!"
Origin story courtesy of Uncommon Cacao: On the southern pacific coast of Colombia, Tumaco is a region that has been hard hit by historic political conflict and plagued by narco trafficking. The predominantly Afro-Colombian population has faced a great deal of prejudice and sustainable local development has been hijacked by extensive penetration of paramilitary and narco groups. When Cacao de Colombia first explored the region back in 2011, they found cacao everywhere; drying on any flat surface farmers could find, including the road. The sheer volume of cacao was overwhelming, and the opportunity for quality and systemic improvement was obvious. Cacao de Colombia has worked with three community cooperatives to introduce centralized processing and drying. Because of the introduction of centralized processing and Cacao de Colombia’s expertise in high-quality flavor development, farmers today earn 70% more income from cacao today than they did when selling dried beans to the commodity market supply chain, and have a true sustainable alternative to coca production or involvement in the narco groups.
This chocolate is divine. It is what I call a "nibbling" chocolate similar to a "sipping" bourbon. The flavor is intense enough that it is best in small doses paired with a good glass of red wine or mug of black coffee. I only took 1 star off because of the lack of nutritional information which I couldn't find on the website either.
Absolutely the best dark sweetened chocolate. I love to have some as a treat everyday!
I’m very discerning about my dark chocolate. I take one small piece every night. This is my favorite!
This dark chocolate is delicious.
The chocolate is smooth, dark and absolutely delicious!! I could eat an entire bar in one day slowly piece by piece!
