    TASTING NOTES

    This silky 100% bar from French chocolate maker Encuentro enjoys earthy notes of plum and the characteristic pleasing bitterness expected of 100% bars.

    ABOUT THE MAKER

    Encuentro’s co-founder Candice discovered the beauty of chocolate in 2008, when she lived in the Dominican Republic for a year. She and her partner, Antonie, set up their first chocolate factory in 2012 in Punta Cana, DR, which put them in close proximity to their cocoa producers and allowed them to become a hub of chocolate tourism. They returned to their home country of France a year later, and re-established a thriving chocolate factory in the suburbs of Paris in 2016. Now they’ve come full circle, having last year moved their factory to Lille, where Antonie and Candice first met.

    THE BEANS

    The beans for this bar are sourced from Öko Caribe, the most prominent cocoa supplier in the Dominican Republic and one of the most popular in the world. The two owners, Adriano de Jesus Rodriguez and Gualberto Acebey Torrejon, maintain close relationships with their farmers, often giving out loans for family emergencies and community needs. They also educate their farmers about sustainable land management and environmental responsibility, and pay consistent premiums for the farmers’ award-winning cocoa.
