Conexión Chocolate produce chocolate made exclusively from Ecuador’s emblematic fine of flavor “Arriba Nacional” Cacao Beans. This bar is harvested from beans by small farmers in the Los Rios province of Ecuador from the Apovinces co-op. The beans from the Apovinces Co-Op have been designated as “Heirloom Cacao” by the HCP (Heirloom Cacao Project) to encourage the preservation of the rare and old varieties of Arriba Nacional Cacao.
This bar achieved a Silver at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2017.
This bar is rich with woody, floral, nutty, herb, and caramelized notes. The creamy caramel leaves you wanting more.

I love this company. The owner is incredible and has accomplished so much. Farmers make more money if they make their own chocolate and Jenny, the owner, has made this possible.
I like the bar. Nice tempering and texture. To me, it could be improved if it had a bit less astringency.

This is a superb example of bean to bar chocolate. Wonderfully creamy, melt-in-the-mouth texture, and a bottomless depth of rich flavour, finishing off with a moreish flourish. Highly recommended.
