Reasons to Love

Bean to Bar

Bean to Bar

Direct-Source Cacao

Direct Sourced

"Nestled in the Caribbean coast of Venezuela is the little village of Cuyagua. The cocoa from Cuyagua has been famous since the age of the Portuguese pirates who traded these same beans. I have the immense honor to make chocolate with Cuyagua's rarified beans. What I treasure most, however, is the heart of one of Cuyagua's cocoa farmers who has the heart of a poet.

After I handed this farmer a chocolate bar made with the cocoa he helped grow and harvest, he said "This chocolate is like a river." When I asked him why, he said "this chocolate takes you on a journey of flavor and it goes to all these wild and wondrous places. It goes on and on like a river." It is my hope that you enjoy Cuyagua's river of flavor like Cuyagua's humble cocoa farmer did."

-Art Pollard, Founder and Chocolate Maker

Amano Cuyagua 70%

Precious bar but the distinctive clove taste is not for everyone. Best for pairing session to deeply evaluate all the qualities of this criollo variety.
