Maker

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 first woman-owned bean to bar chocolate company in the U.S that 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.

Cacao Region

Sierra Nevada, Colombia

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a Colombian mountain range just 50 miles from the Venezuelan border. The region is popular with visitors, in part thanks to the development of cultural tourism infrastructure centered around the indigenous Arhuaco peoples. Cacao from the Sierra Nevada region has become particularly famous thanks to farmers’ high degree of technical expertise— they’re even running their own pollination trials to improve quality and yields.

One of my top 3 dark milk chocolate bars

This chocolate has such great texture and snap. It has a rich chocolate taste that I want to keep savoring for as long as I can!

Nice, mild milk chocolate

This 63% Dark Milk is very smooth, with a nice melt, and a nice milk chocolate flavor.

All time favorite

This bar reminds me of brownies. It is smooth and milky, but also a little dark!
