Maker

Definite Chocolate

Definite Chocolate is a micro batch bean to bar chocolate maker from Dominican Republic. By sourcing directly from local cacao producers, they use only high-quality single origin cacao, which they roast, winnow, grind, temper and mold into fine chocolate bars with the utmost care. As far as possible, Definite Chocolate uses only locally sourced ingredients to support the local industry and to give a touch of Caribbean feeling to every bar. All their bars are made naturally without any additives. Definite Chocolate was founded by Jens Kamin, who moved from Germany to the Dominican Republic to make his dream come true and become a chocolate maker. They are the first Dominican chocolate producer who won an international award, and that only one year after starting their business in 2017.

Cacao Region

Duarte, Dominican Republic

Duarte is a northern province of the Dominican Republic, named after Juan Pablo Duarte, the founder of the country. The province is located in the eastern portion of the Cibao Valley, and finds its economic base in both commercial industry & processing, and agriculture. Duarte grows over two-thirds of the Dominican Republic’s exported cacao, as well as ~60% of the rice consumed within the country; other crops include coffee, tobacco, and bananas.

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.

A very strong and unique choco

I am very impressed by this strong chocolate! It has very light notes of tea, a well-blended smooth texture. I highly recommend this chocolate with a tea.
