TASTING NOTES

Latitude’s 70% bar delights in a light acidity with bold cherry and dried fruit notes before a long, balanced finish.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Latitude was founded by Jeff Steinberg in 2016, in the small Ugandan town of Kasese. It’s come a long way since then, growing from only 3 people (including Jeff) into a thriving Certified B Corp run by 25 full-time Ugandan staff. But the mission at the heart of Latitude has stayed the same: “Our bottom line is (and always will be) quantified by how many households we work with and what we are doing for them.”

THE BEANS

With a local focus at the heart of everything they do, it’s no surprise that Latitude works very closely with local growers in sourcing cocoa beans. They’ve contracted over 1000 small-holder organic-certified farmers, about half of whom are women.  They set up bi-weekly collection points at walking distance from the farms, so on the same day of harvest beans are weighed and farmers are paid in cash. Not only do farmers receive a premium price, but their costs of transport, labour, materials, and processing are reduced, as are the risks of theft and spoilage.
