Ghana is known for a fudgy flavor profile, and that’s exactly what this bar has. Deep, dark, fudgy chocolate in a mellow, not-to-sweet bar. I had to stop myself from eating the entire bar at once. It’s so good that it needs to be savored, but it’s so good that it’s hard to stop eating it. No doubt—this bar would make the perfect brownies. Sadly, I at it all. I received this as part of the monthly club, and I plan to buy it again. Maybe next time, I’ll get to make those brownies!
Collection title: ABOCFA
This farmer cooperative is based in southern Ghana, and is known for producing the highest quality traceable cacao in the region. It’s one of the cacaos imported by Uncommon Cacao, a US-based cacao distributor. ABOCFA’s beans are different from most specialty cacao origins in that they aren’t centrally fermented in one location, as The Ghana Cocoa Board doesn’t permit the sale or purchase of wet cacao. ABOCFA’s network contains 13 communities of farmers, each of which has three representatives who report directly to the ABOCFA cooperative leadership for annual general meetings. The cooperative also democratically decides where quality and Fair Trade premiums go every year. Their cacao has a classically fudgy and rich flavor, chocolaty without being bitter or astringent.

Collection title: Fresco
Collection description: Fresco is a small craft chocolate maker in Lynden, Washington. The founder of Fresco, Rob Anderson, releases several combinations of roasting and conch profiles to create different variation bars from the same beans. Anderson, originally a computer scientist, took a trip to Washington and visited a chocolate shop and took a tour which initially sparked his chocolate interest. Since then, Anderson created his own machines to make small batches of test chocolate. While only using three ingredients for his bars; cacao beans, cane sugar and cacao butter, Fresco’s flavor range is uniquely diverse. He chose the name Fresco meaning fresh in Italian, which could translate into fresh taste, fresh ideas, or a fresh approach to chocolate making.

Collection title: Soy Free Chocolate
Collection description: These chocolates do not list soy products as a main ingredient. Some of the chocolates say: "may contain traces of soy" where perhaps a very small amount may have come in contact with the food due to shared equipment or facility usage. Each product has icons that indicate whether a product is completely soy free or may contain traces.
Collection title: Suhum, Ghana
Collection description: Suhum is a district in southern Ghana, about an hour outside of the country’s capital of Accra. The region is largely rural, with most villagers relying upon agriculture, mainly cacao. Due to government restrictions, throughout the country cacao must be processed individually by the farmer before being sold to an association, limiting locals’ potential to increase their income. This means that even if farmers can afford to become organic or Fair Trade certified, their earning potential is still limited by current market prices. Luckily, a regional cooperative in Suhum has partnered with cacao importer Uncommon Cacao to bring high quality, traceable Ghanaian cacao to the world, and bring a higher price to the cacao farmers.
