Description

ABOUT THE BAR

Öko Caribe’s beans are dried next to open fires, which explains the subtle smoky notes of this rich 70% dark chocolate bar. The bar has strong cocoa aromas, with hints of ripe red fruits. We also picked up earthy hints, with some vegetal and alcoholic notes. 

ABOUT THE MAKER

Based in Belgium, Julia ‘Mike’ Mikerova and Björn ‘Becky’ Becker are the owners of Brussels’ first organic Bean-to-Bar chocolate workshop, and pride themselves on real, honest chocolate. Importing fine cacao beans directly from 5 plantations around the world, sustainability is not just a word to them. In addition to paying a fair price which is far about the market price and avoiding plantations which use child labour, Mike & Becky also only use organic beetroot sugar, which is incorporated into their bars at their 100% green powered production facility.

ABOUT THE BEANS

The beans for this bar are sourced from Öko Caribe, a 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.
