Maker

Cacaoteca

Cacaoteca is a tree to bar chocolate maker from Miches, Dominican Republic. Back in 2015, owner Coral was surprised by the exceptional taste of Dominican cacao. 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.

Cacaoteca El Arca Dark 84%

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.

Rich and complex

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

Deep and earthy

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!

Impressive!

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.
