We make this incredibly flavorful bar with beans from the Salazar family farm in the Esmeraldas region of Ecuador.  The Salazars have over one hundred acres of carefully cultivated Nacional hybrid cacao trees.  The volume of beans they harvest allows them to ferment and dry the beans themselves, in their own recently built and incredibly well designed facility.  The level of control they have over the cacao varietals they plant, as well as their post harvest processing, results in beans of exceptional quality and flavor.  This is a well balanced bar with very low acidity, intense berry jam flavors and a long finish.

This bar includes cocoa butter we fresh press ourselves from the Esmeraldas beans, resulting in an exceptionally smooth and creamy chocolate.
