Chequessett Chocolate is based in Cape Cod, Massachusetts and named after the Wampanoag language’s “rushing water”. It’s not only the fact that the founders, Katherine and Josiah, were partial to the alliteration of “Chequessett Chocolate – Cape Cod Craft Chocolate”, but they also wanted to honour the history of the Wampanoag tribe, who are the first recorded Native Americans living in Cape Cod. And nearby Chequessett’s chocolate factory, where the tide rushes in and out of the land, this tidal inlet is aptly named the “Chequessett Neck”.
About the beans
This chocolate is made from Arriba Nacional hybrid clones (eet-95, eet-96, eet-103) as well as Acriollado varietal beans cultivated on an estate owned by the Salazar family in the Esmereldas region of North-West Ecuador.
Chequessett’s 72% Esmeraldas plays around with honey, pineapple, fudge, tamarind amongst a chocolatey rich background.
