Direct-Source Cacao

Direct Sourced

Dandelion met the co-founder of Reserva Zorzal, Charles Kerchner PhD, when he wandered into their factory a few years ago. Recently, they have been running some experiments together to figure out which trees to plant on the reserve.

Tasting Notes: walnut, caramel, brandied cherry

Zorzal Cacao beans grow on and around a 1,019-acre bird sanctuary in the Dominican Republic. The reserve protects local biodiversity and the nesting grounds for Bicknell's Thrush, an endangered migratory songbird that travels between the northeastern U.S and the Dominican Republic every year.

Cacao Estate

Reserva Zorzal

Zorzal Cacao is an agroforestry project of Reserva Zorzal, a thousand-acre private bird sanctuary and 130-acre organic cacao farm in the northern Dominican Republic. Zorzal is actually the Spanish word for “thrush,” referring to the Bicknell’s Thrush, a migratory songbird which spends winters in the tropical forests of the preserve. Reserva Zorzal is even more unique in the world of cacao, as they have set aside seventy percent of the preserve’s land to be forever wild. They’re part of a carbon-offset project with thirteen other landowners, employ local wildlife monitors, and serve as a model for the integration of conservation & sustainable agroforestry. The cocoa trees are shade-grown to promote wildlife habitat and biodiversity, and all Reserva Zorzal cacao is certified organic.
