Direct-Source Cacao

Direct Sourced

This chocolate, with vanilla and citric notes, is made with cacao from small producers of UCLS in Sambirano Valley. In the northwest of Madagascar, organic premium cacao grows in the buffer zone of a unique rainforest ecosystem. UCLS, founded in 2009, started a bean quality program to train its member farmers in organic agriculture, selection of planting materials, and improved post-harvesting techniques for fermentation and drying. This resulted in a substantial increase in bean quality and therefore the farmers’ livelihoods have improved substantially. The cacao grows in sustainable agroforestry systems, intercropped with mangoes, bananas, coffee, vanilla, etc. The picking is done manually, and the beans are then fermented 4 to 5 days in wooden boxes before being sun-dried.

Tasting Notes: Cherry, jasmine, vanilla, citrus.

Puchero, started as a coffee roaster and then grew to include their passion for making chocolate. The co-founders Paloma and Marco, from Spain and Italy respectively created Puchero in 2015. Their roastery and chocolate factory is in the outskirts of Madrid. Three years later in 2018 inspired by the infinite nuances of cacao from around the world, they started making chocolate from cocoa beans that have been harvested and dried on the farm by small-scale producers.

Cacao Region

Sambirano Valley, Madagascar

Perhaps the most famous growing region in the world, northern Madagascar's Sambirano Valley is known for its incredibly fruity cacao and aromatic herbs & spices. Over the past few decades three main plantations have popped up in the area to supply cacao to chocolate makers around the world, as well as some of the world's most valuable botanicals, namely vanilla, ylang-ylang, and essential oil extracts.

Smooth, beautiful taste with that little kick of acidity that Madagascar beans have. This is my second bar I've tried from this company and both have been top notch. Would recommend.
