Limited Release, White Chocolate
Available exclusively on our website! Limited Release bars are our way of sharing the incredible fine flavor cacao we receive from farmers all over the world. It also allows us to get showcase unique flavors and flavor combinations.
Our First White Chocolate Bar
We freshly press our own single origin cocoa butter, which means this single origin white chocolate bar is very different than the vast majority of white chocolate. Most white chocolate is made from bulk, deodorized cocoa butter, so the natural flavor of the cocoa butter is completely removed. But this bar is made from cocoa butter we freshly pressed from our fine flavor, single origin Esmeraldas cacao beans from the Salazar family farm in Ecuador. These are the same beans we use in our multiple-award-winning Esmeraldas 70% bar.
We’ve wanted to make a white chocolate bar for a long time, but pressing cocoa butter is a time consuming and difficult process. We’ve been fitting in extra presses to have enough butter to make this bar. We hope you enjoy it!
About the Esmeraldas Bean
These Nacional beans are from the Salazar family farm in the Esmeraldas region of Ecuador. The Salazars have over one hundred acres of carefully cultivated cacao trees. The volume of beans they harvest allows them to ferment and dry the beans themselves and 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. For more information about Costa Esmeraldas Cacao, and pictures from our trip, please visit our Esmeraldas page.
About Organic West
Organic West sources from family run dairies on the west coast. All the cows are pasture raised, and their milk is always antibiotic, GMO and rBST free. They buy milk on a regular basis at a stable price, which allows farmers to plan long term. They’re able to do this because their facility allows them to turn the milk into many products, including the nonfat dry milk powder we use in this bar.
Tasting notes: This bar is very sweet and creamy, with a hint of peanut butter cereal. (no nuts are added, though)
Ingredients: Single origin cocoa butter (Esmeraldas), Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Nonfat Milk Powder
May contain trace amounts of peanuts and tree nuts.
I'll be stocking up on these, kinda sad it's a limited run
Love all your chocolates and variety!
The taste is good, but the sweetness is lacking but Healthy. ( Since my housemate is Diabetic) He believes it is better for him & grateful for a GOOD QUALITY CHOCOLATE!!
I also gave some of my White Chocolates to some bank tellers, & they have enjoyed your chocolates! I did taste your White Chocolate, & I liked it as it is mild & a muted color which seems more natural than the normal white bleached-like & very sweet chocolate that is sold in many stores which I do not like at all so the next time I make Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal, Walnut Cookies from Scratch, I will make my homemade cookies!!
Rich, creamy and caramelly. Very satisfying!
I had high hopes for this white chocolate, but am sorry to say that I was not wowed at all. I don't care for the aftertaste of milk powder in regular white chocolate, and I was disappointed I still tasted it in this chocolate. I don't think white chocolate belongs to the family of excellent dark chocolate of yours.
