TASTING NOTES

Öko Caribe’s beans are dried next to open fires, which explains the subtle smoky notes in this milk bar’s long, complex finish. It’s soft and fudgy in the mouth, with a lovely upfront of caramel.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Ruket founders Alessandro and Marco have always loved food and been fascinated by traditional, artisanal production. Their discovery of craft chocolate happened almost by accident, when Marco wanted to use the best possible chocolate in his ice cream parlour. They started experimenting with bean-to-bar chocolate, and quickly decided that this chocolate was much more than just an ingredient: it was something to be shared with the world.

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.

  1. meghan m.

    This is lovely! Very fudgy and a nice unusual smokey note. Gorgeous smooth texture too. A favourite.

  2. Ben S.

    This is a very unusual chocolate, starting grainy and sour but ending smooth and sweet. Won’t be to everyone’s liking
