52% Ecuador | Dark Milk

A relatively new genre in the chocolate world, "Dark Milk" combines the best of both worlds. It has the creamy texture and mouthfeel that a lot of us grew up on, as well as the rich, deep complexity of a nice dark chocolate. A nice treat on it's own, this chocolate bar will also be a great addition to your charcuterie board or chopped up for the ultimate chocolate chip cookies.

Story

Single estate. Less than 10 miles inland from the town of Muisne in the Esmeraldas province. Cacao orchards were established six years ago on former cattle pasture with very steep terrain. Establishment of cacao, timber, and other fruit trees has reduced erosion on the farm site. Esmeraldas has an unusual climate, with little variation in average temperatures. The region has relatively short wet season from January to May each year, but during the dry season, the weather is almost always overcast with light drizzling rain.

Costa Esmeraldas is a family owned and operated 100-hectare cacao farm. All members of the Salazar family (Fredy, Monica, and siblings Freddy and Indira) actively participate in the cacao business. Freddy is directly responsible for managing operations at the farm and post-harvest center. Management of the cacao orchards create over 40 full-time jobs within the local community in rural Esmeraldas.

Transparency

We as a company believe that transparency is unbelievably important. The point of listing things below is not to justify what we charge or what we profit, but to give a realistic snapshot of the industry and how Specialty Coffee can be different than other commodity industries.
