The fine Solomon Islands beans in this bar have flavour notes of olives, cashews, cream and coffee. Thanks to this balanced and complex profile, they make the perfect beans for a 100% bar with no added ingredients.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Feitoria do Cacao was established by Tomoko Suga and Sue Tavares after an eye-opening trip to see the poor living conditions of cocoa farmers in São Tomé and Principe. They remain committed to paying a premium price for their cocoa beans in an effort to reduce the economic disparities between cocoa farmers and chocolate producers. Based in Portugal, they hand-craft their chocolate bars in micro batches to accentuate the natural variety of flavours in each delivery of cocoa beans.
The beans in this bar were sourced from the islands of Makira and Vella Lavella, part of the island chain that makes up the Solomon Islands.
