The Colombian beans in this 73% dark bar bring a toasted flavour profile of marshmallows, crackers, and honey.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Tom and Monica were living in Los Angeles as a TV producer and real estate agent when they discovered the magic of craft chocolate. In their own words: “We first discovered craft chocolate in, of all places, a vintage furniture shop in Los Angeles. The incredible flavors we tasted in those bars completely changed how we thought about chocolate, and started us on our journey to become single origin chocolate makers”.
The beans in this bar were sourced from Impulsa Bacao, a newly launched project in Boyaca, Colombia. The venture was launched in collaboration with a local association of cocoa farmers, with the aim of bringing cocoa-farming families out of poverty by building a new fermentation and drying facility and providing technical assistance and education to the local farmers. Cocaine used to be a major crop in the region, but with Impulsa Bacao’s help, more and more farmers are turning to the cultivation of fine-flavour cocoa beans as a main source of income.
