Raaka – 100% Cacao
This 100% cacao bar is mellow, with a rich cocoa flavour. There is an astringency that grows and smooths out, yielding to a natural sweetness. The texture is soft, with a slow melt but clean melt.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Raaka is a Brooklyn-based craft chocolate maker that focuses on social responsibility as much as great taste. Founder Ryan Cheney discovered chocolate while on holiday in Thailand, and quickly grew excited about the possible flavours of unroasted cocoa beans. Raaka is now dedicated to making “uncommonly delicious chocolate” crafted from unroasted cacao beans, capturing the brighter, bolder, and fruitier notes of cacao. Raaka is also committed to transparent trade, publishing farmgate prices for all the cocoa that goes into each bar.
The beans for this bar were sourced from Kokoa Kamili in the Kilombero Valley, Tanzania. Kokoa Kamili has been paying premium prices for wet cocoa since 2015, saving farmers the tasks of fermentation and drying and adding enormous value to their cocoa beans. In the height of harvest season, Kokoa Kamili employs 50 people from their village, and has set up a scholarship fund for local girls to go to the nearby secondary school.
