Our first ever chocolate from Mexico sets a very high bar! Adding only a touch of organic cane sugar to the cacao, we allow the nuances of these flavors to shine through without distracting with any other ingredients. The cacao itself displays flavor notes of persimmon, fudge, prunes, and molasses. We're honored to be working with such a unique cacao origin, building on the foundation laid by centuries of growth and cultivation.
Each bar is 2 oz/57g.
Made in the United States.
"We have always loved working with our hands, deeply rooted in a background of woodworking and boat building. The concept of craft has been a guiding principle in our lives from the beginning. After hearing about what was going on in the young and growing American craft chocolate movement, we were drawn to the common threads we saw in working with wood and crafting chocolate from bean. We became fascinated with a new challenge and loved the idea of reinventing the chocolate experience.
The most hands-on approach we could take was to start with the raw cacao. We source the finest fairly-traded cacao and perform all the steps in-house to turn the raw ingredients into delicious chocolate, all in our small factory in Eureka, California. This process takes approximately three weeks to complete but allows us to make some of the finest chocolate possible. We use organic cacao and organic cane sugar in our chocolate. By not cutting corners or taking shortcuts in our process, we can leave out vanilla, additional cocoa butter, or other emulsifiers, in hopes of capturing and highlighting the subtle flavor nuances in the cacao we source from around the world. we hope you will get as much enjoyment eating our chocolate as we do making it."
