Craft Chocolate Bar - Mayan Mountain
This 75% dark chocolate was hand crafted from raw cacao and organic sugar in Topeka, KS.
Crafted from cacao produced by the 420+ certified organic smallholder cacao farming families in the Toledo and South Stann Creek Districts. Most of these farmers are Q’eqchi’ and Mopan Maya and who have been producing cacao for generations. Mayan Mountain centrally processes all cacao at a post-harvest facility where three unique stages of sun drying create optimal flavor.

Tasting Notes: At 75% cacao the flavors are bold but approachable due to this origin’s natural sweetness. There’s a lot going on with this chocolate, this initial flavors of honey, peach and even some citrus melt into nutty bitterness. This finish is clean with mild astringency and linger notes of strawberry
Pairing Suggestions: Rosa Regale Sparkling Red
