TASTING NOTES

This earthy bar is typically “Ecuador”, with some slightly savoury notes of balsamic and red wine.

ABOUT THE MAKER

You may have seen renowned chef, restauranteur, and pastry maker Jordi Roca on his own episode of Netflix’s The Chef’s Table. A trailblazing culinary figure, he discovered the magic of cocoa on a visit to the Awajún native community in Peru. He saw their under-appreciated dedication to the craft of cocoa farming, and determined to make bars that – as with wine – resemble the people who create them. He partnered with chocolatier Damian Allsop, and together they have successfully launched a boutique hotel and café in their hometown of Girona.

 THE BEANS

Hacienda Victoria is a 500-hectare cocoa plantation about half an hour from Guayaquil, Ecuador. Established in 2012 by Carlos Eduardo García Fuentes and named after his wife, Victoria, the estate is leading the way in sustainable, socially responsible cocoa agriculture.
