About the Beans
These beans are sourced from Encuentro’s birthplace: the Dominican Republic. Nestled in the heart of the cacao rich Duarte province in the Dominican Republic, Öko-Caribe is a gem amongst cacao suppliers. Öko Caribe works in close relationships with its 165 farmers, and helps with technical training, agronomic practices and organic certification for its small-holder farmers.
About the Maker
This dark chocolate has a wholemeal biscuity flavour, with the melt comes a fruitiness and a slight sour greengage plum towards the back of the tongue. The finish is clean, signature of Encuentro’s chocolate making style, with a touch of astringency. An ideal pairing for a tannic red wine.
