Not my normal go-to flavor profile, but an excellent bar that grew on me more every time I incorporated it into a testing. It has some a complex mix of herbal, grassy, fruity, and sweet. At first I was a bit unsure what to make of it, and then I really embraced these flavors and appreciated the incredibly diversity of flavor, all within a single bar. Beautifully made and a great example of why chocolate is so cool.

Collection title: Goodnow Farms
Collection description: Goodnow Farms chocolate is handcrafted in Massachusetts. All the cacao they use is ethically sourced from small farmers and producers that Tom and Monica have met during their travels throughout Mexico, Central and South America. The cacao is carefully stone ground, and conched in small batches. They also press their own cocoa butter for each bar. They admired the concept of single origin bars and capturing the different taste profiles, and uniqueness through each bar. They discovered their love for real craft chocolate after visiting a vintage shop in Los Angeles. Tom and Monica officially created Goodnow Farms in 2016 but have been crafting their creations since 2008. The pair works hard to engage with the communities where they receive their cacao from to ensure farmers are fairly compensated and practice sustainable farming.

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: Ucayali River Cacao
Collection description: This central fermentary works with cacao farmers along the Ucayali River, which is outside of the city of Pucallpa, in eastern Peru. Since their inception, Ucayali River Cacao has partnered with both USAID and Alianza Peru to offer local farmers access to an alternate market in a region plagued for too long by narcotraffickers. Buying wet cacao at a premium price takes a lot of work off the farmers’ plates without taking away income, and allows the processing team to ensure even fermentation & drying of all beans. Working with a few hundred smallholder farmers, the team at Ucayali River has been able to achieve a deeply flavorful cacao, with hugely varying flavor profiles depending upon the work of the chocolate maker.
Collection title: Ucayali, Peru
Collection description: Ucayali is a department of eastern Peru, bordered by seven other Peruvian departments and the Brazilian state of Acre. Located smack in the Amazon Rainforest, its name is derived from the Ucayali River, which runs through the northwestern part of the department. Much of Ucayali’s economy comes from the exploitation of its natural rainforest, including logging precious woods and catching rare Amazonian fish, but an increasing number of locals are turning to organic cacao farming, with an eye on the US & European markets.
