The packaging is lovely - a seascape in a frame. I love the mission of the brand too! My brother translated some of the Spanish and told me that they help differently abled people in their community and give them work, which warms my shriveled little heart. The bar itself is fruity, lush and bold. Raisin and nut flavors and an intriguing subtle menthol coolness at the end.
Earthy, hints of red fruit and coffee. Smooth, slow melt, lightly creamy. No bitterness. I really enjoyed this rich fudgey melting bar. Will have more
The flavors of this bar are deep and delicious. The aroma is very earthy, and reminds me a bit of the classic Theo dark bars. There is a strong liqueur quality to it. It is nutty with a touch of menthol coolness. I detect an occasional tiny nib fragment (as in the size of a grain of salt), but it is otherwise a pretty smooth texture. Worth trying!
I received this as part of the monthly club (If you’re not a member, what are you waiting for? It’ll change your life for the better!). With the exception of the nutritional facts on the sticker, all text is in Spanish, and my Spanish is very basic, so I started this bar with no expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. It has no added cocoa butter, but it’s still smooth. It’s lightly fruity but dark and luscious. This is a bar that I may not have bought, but because of the club, I will buy this again. What the company does for the community is a bonus, and I also used the artwork In paper crafting.

The association was founded in 1997, and now works with hundreds of cacao farmers in the provinces of Salcedo and Duarte.

Most of APROCACI’s farmers use organic farming methods, with 900+ tons of organic-certified cacao produced by the association each year.

She realized that Dominican cacao is considered some of the best in the world, there weren’t any chocolate makers in the Dominican Republic taking advantage of its amazing crop! Using locally sourced cacao beans that are only a short few hours away from Cacaoteca’s location, it has a positive impact on the Dominican economy, since cacao is mostly exported. Cacaoteca works directly with its farmers, and train the farmers how to dry the beans ensuring top quality. Cacaoteca also provides fair pay for the high quality cacao and showcase the flavors of Dominican cacao.
