DESCRIPTION:

This chocolate bar is a tribute to the Lost City of a vanished ancient civilization, discovered within Honduras' virgin tropical rainforest. The indigenous people living in the region protect the forest and make a sustainable living as harvesters of wild cacao. The cacao is processed in their village and put on hollowed-out tree log canoes, called pipantes, for a two-day voyage upstream to the nearest road. We are the first American craft chocolate maker to make a single-origin chocolate from these remote beans. We sprinkle fleur de sel from Guatemala onto this dark, rich, creamy milk chocolate. The sea salt complements the savory nutty flavors in the chocolate. It pairs well with whiskey. It's our homage to timelessness of this place.

Castronovo

Castronovo was started by Denise Castronovo in Stuart, Florida. While Castronovo was only launched in 2013, Denise has made some strikingly different and exceptional chocolate that has won over twenty awards both nationally and internationally. Denise is the only woman-owned bean to bar chocolate company in the U.S that has won an award from the International Chocolate Awards! Denise picks heirloom varieties of cacao from remote regions that help to conserve the rainforest and highlight the exclusive flavors from those regions. Castronovo also ensures that the beans she uses come from plantations that naturally exist in the wild, or from small farms that practice sustainable farming. Denise is there every step of the way to ensure not only quality chocolate bars but ensuring that even the beans are carefully looked after. Castronovo decided to get into the chocolate making business after her original career as an ecologist and owning her own company that uses mapping technology to look at satellite imagery for ecological health slowed down in 2008. She purchased a bag of cacao beans, when it dawned on her that, that was the first time she realized where chocolate comes from. Actually, her own bars from her first batch was the first bean to bar chocolate she’s ever had! And the rest is history.

Castronovo Honduras Dark Milk with Fleur de Sel

I admit that sometimes this combination needs some finessing and it feels like a stretch but IT IS NOT THE CASE OF THIS PARTICULAR BAR!!! Denise really created something far different from the orderliness of this "inclusion". The quality of taste-mouthfeel-texture is close to perfection. See, in my opinion, the more "we" simplify the "inventiveness", the closer "we" shall be to what "we" are striving for, namely the excellence of chocolate!
