77% Ecuador | Dark

A dark chocolate for the purists. With only organic fine-flavor cacao and organic cane sugar used, there is nothing to hide behind...only the flavor and aroma of great, ethically sourced cacao. Aside from being a nearly flawless preparation of cacao, this Ecuadorian single-origin has a nice classic cocoa base with a touch of nutty and fruit flavors. Enjoy it on its own, break it up on a charcuterie board, or pair it with a nice red wine, black coffee, or whiskey.

Story

NOTE ON SUMMER SHIPPING
During hot weather months (May-September), we limit our shipping days to Mondays-Tuesdays to prevent products being held in a shipping facility over the weekend. If your order is placed after 8am on Tuesday morning, your order will be held until the following Monday. If you have other items in your order, they will be held until that time frame as well so that they'll ship together for efficiency. Thank you for your understanding!

We guarantee the products will arrive in good condition at your location, but we cannot guarantee chocolate if it remains at your doorstep in poor (Hot) weather conditions. Please track your packages to receive immediately upon delivery. If possible, choose to ship to a commercial address where it is more likely to be delivered into an air-conditioned space.

COSTA ESMERALDAS
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.

Fermentation is executed using a five-tiered cascade system. Cedar wood boxes with ~450 kg capacity. The fermenting mass is turned once at 36 hours, and then every morning until fermentation is complete. Total duration of fermentation is 5 ½ days. All cacao is sun dried on sliding mesh racks. High-walled polyethylene tunnels cover all drying structures. Gradual drying is practiced during the first three days. Finish-drying to a moisture content of 7% is on concrete patios. All dry cacao is stored in breathable jute bags for at least two months to allow oxidation and volatilization of acidity. After aging, beans are checked for moisture content, and if necessary, spread for re-drying.

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.
