After several months of work we are proud to launch a new chocolate from Belize. This is an absolutely beautiful cacao imported by our pals at Uncommon Cacao. They manage a centrally ferment and process cacao from more than 350 certified organic smallholder cacao farming families in the Toledo District of Belize. Most of these farmers are indigenous folks of Q’eqchi’ and Mopan Maya ancestry.
We went a little bold with this one. First, this is a two ingredient bar, only roasted cacao and organic sugar. Second, we pushed the percentage fo cacao a little higher, this is a 75% cacao bar. However, don't be afraid of the higher percentage, the flavors are surprisingly pleasant because this cacao has some intrinsic sweetness. The bar is wonderfully smooth with notes of honey and pineapple that melt into a raisin taste. The finish is just slightly astringent.
Come on by to get a taste of this new bar.
