Coto Brus is the only bean from Costa Rica awarded an official “Heirloom” designation in recognition of its incredible flavors. It is one of only 15 cacaos in the world recognized as Heirloom.
The beans are cultivated, harvested, fermented and dried on a small farm in Southern Costa Rica by brothers Giovanni and Raul Campos Portilla, with help from Giovanni’s son Raul.
This is a limited release bar, as the farm produces only a very small amount of cacao each year.
For more information about this bean and pictures from our trip to the farm see our Coto Brus page!
Flavor notes: Caramel, plum and cocoa.
Ingredients: Cacao Beans, Organic Sugar, Single Origin Cocoa Butter (Coto Brus)
May contain trace amounts of peanuts and tree nuts.
I love milk chocolate. However, I like the one origin Costa Rican dark chocolate. I was able to taste the unique flavors.
Goodnow produces the very best bean to bar chocolate I have had - and I have tried A LOT....
I love chocolate and was lucky to live many years in Switzerland! Goodnow Farms chocolate quality and taste is one of the best that I have experienced. I highly recommend their single source bars. All of them are good but this one and Peru are my favorites.
