Reasons to Love

Bean to Bar

Bean to Bar

Direct-Source Cacao

Direct Sourced

Deep, warm flavors with hints of citrus, raisins & coffee. Fine chocolate made from floral "Nacional" beans from the Camino Verde project. We roast them and Stone-grind for 60 hours in small batches. As the Ecuador beans are soft and gentle we can push the strength up to 83%. The careful roasting and the long conching process drive off bitterness and leave a strong chocolate; delicious with a coffee or a brandy. It tastes like a 70% chocolate!

Ingredients: Single origin cocoa beans, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter and sunflower lecithin.

*No nuts, gluten, soya or dairy ingredients are used in this bar.

Cacao Region

Guayas, Ecuador

Guayas is a coastal province in western Ecuador, home to the city of Guayaquil, which is both the nation’s largest city and the main port of the country. Thanks in no small part to Guayaquil— undeniably the center of the region’s economy & culture— Guayas is also the most populous province in Ecuador. The majority of its land is dedicated to agriculture, in turn dominated by sugarcane, rice, and various tropical fruits.

Cacao Estate

Camino Verde

The Camino Verde (Spanish for green path) cacao brand started off as a single estate endeavor by fermentation expert & microbiologist Vicente Norero. Over the years it’s evolved into a centralized fermentary in the Duran region, sourcing cacao from a number of nearby farmers in order to process all of it in one place. With Vicente’s deep understanding of fermentation methods, he produces a variety of flavor profiles using both his own cacao and that from nearby farms. While the blend of estates also means a range of unique tasting notes, all Camino Verde cacao is carefully processed and certified organic.

Cacao Strain

Nacional

Nacional is one of those ten evolutionarily unique types identified in 2008, using samples collected throughout the Americas over the previous century. Samples proven to be of the nacional cluster were taken from Ecuador and northern Peru, where it’s considered one of the traditional cacao cultivars; it was domesticated by indigenous Ecuadorians over 5000 years ago, reaching far beyond its small native growing region. Many years ago, however, the cultivar neared extinction as more productive clones replaced the region’s native trees. Nacional is known to be fruity & floral, with some astringency and almost no bitterness.
