Maker

Bonnat

Chocolat Bonnat is a French chocolate maker that started in 1884 and has been handed down the family for generations. Made in a traditional style, the single origin chocolate bars here are super rich from added cocoa butter, giving them all an amazing melt mouthfeel. Since the 1980's Bonnat has continued to pioneer the creation of single origin bars. They work with 35 different plantations around the globe to produce bars that showcase each cacao’s unique flavor. Bonnat works closely with each farmer, so he can see first hand each vital step that goes into his fine quality chocolate bars.

Cacao Region

Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, Ecuador

Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas is a province in northwestern Ecuador, relatively flat but for the small portion situated at the foot of the Andes Mountain Range. The name of the province refers to a local ethnic group, the Tsáchilas, also known as the colorados or “dyed ones,” on account of the custom of men dyeing their hair with bright red achiote paste. This is one of the smallest and newest provinces of Ecuador, only formed in 2007.

Cacao Estate

Camino Verde

The Camino Verde (Spanish for green path) cacao brand started off as a single estate endeavor by fermentation expert & microbiologist Vicente Norero. Over the years it’s evolved into a centralized fermentary in the Duran region, sourcing cacao from a number of nearby farmers in order to process all of it in one place. With Vicente’s deep understanding of fermentation methods, he produces a variety of flavor profiles using both his own cacao and that from nearby farms. While the blend of estates also means a range of unique tasting notes, all Camino Verde cacao is carefully processed and certified organic.

Cacao Strain

Nacional

Nacional is one of those ten evolutionarily unique types identified in 2008, using samples collected throughout the Americas over the previous century. Samples proven to be of the nacional cluster were taken from Ecuador and northern Peru, where it’s considered one of the traditional cacao cultivars; it was domesticated by indigenous Ecuadorians over 5000 years ago, reaching far beyond its small native growing region. Many years ago, however, the cultivar neared extinction as more productive clones replaced the region’s native trees. Nacional is known to be fruity & floral, with some astringency and almost no bitterness.

Silky, fudgy deliciousness

Like all of the Bonnat bars, the texture is smooth and silky. Tastes of bitter coffee, nuts, and fudge. Full-bodied and flavorful.
