Hacienda Azul is a small farm located in the rural town of Turrialba in the province of Cartago a couple hours east of Costa Rica's capital, San Jose. It is managed by the Zeuner family and employs 8 people full time. The famed CATIE university of agriculture is also located here and has provided 5 different clones to the farm. The beans are washed prior to drying and they've found this cacao fascinating by its versatility.

Tasting notes: Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds

Maker

LetterPress Chocolate

LetterPress Chocolate was cofounded by David and Corey Menkes in Los Angeles, CA. They founded LetterPress with the purpose of paying cocoa farmers a a premium for quality, sourcing their cacao through direct trade, and working with partners such as Uncommon Cacao, Meridian Cacao. Quality above quantity with as few ingredients as possible to make the best chocolate possible is their mission. On the inside flap of every bar is their favorite quote from Benjamin Franklin: “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
