Esmeraldas 70% Dark Chocolate Bar
$10.78 Suggested Selling Price
WINNER, 2018 GOOD FOOD AWARDS, BEST CHOCOLATE. 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.
About Goodnow Farms Chocolate
Our goal is to make incredibly flavorful chocolate while sourcing our beans in the most ethical and sustainable manner. We personally visit cacao farms throughout Central and South America to find the best, most flavorful beans and trade directly with the farmers who grow them. At our farm in Sudbury, Massachusetts we make our chocolate by hand, from roasting the beans to hand wrapping each bar. We even press our own cocoa butter, which makes our chocolate incredibly smooth and creamy. Our chocolate has won national awards, and we're the only chocolate maker in New England to win a 2018 Good Food Award!
