Maker

Pump Street Chocolate

Pump Street Chocolate is an award winning British chocolate maker in Suffolk, UK. All of their chocolate bars are handcrafted from direct trade beans and natural ingredients.

Originally started as a bakery, producing high quality breads and pastries Pump Street decided to take a turn and tackle bean to bar chocolate.

Cacao Region

Cotopaxi, Ecuador

Cotopaxi is an Ecuadorian province smack in the center of the country, just south of the capital city of Quito. The province is perhaps best known for the national park and its volcano of the same name, which draw thousands of visitors each month. A significant portion of the province is indigenous Ecuadorian, most of whom work in agriculture. Corn, potatoes, wheat, and flowers for export are the most common crops in the temperate zones, while cacao, coffee, and sugarcane dominate the province’s most tropical areas.

Cacao Estate

Hacienda Limon

Hacienda Limon is located at the foot of the Andes Mountain Range, between endless plantations of cacao and banana. The climate on the farm is tropical & humid year round, with nutrient-rich volcanic soil thanks to the nearby Cotopaxi Volcano. Owner Samuel von Rütte, together with his wife Anita & four other families, run the 110-hectare plantation, which is dominated by strains of pure nacional arriba cacao varietals. In 2014, one of these varietals was awarded a heirloom cacao designation status, ensuring the protection of variety diversity. No insecticides or fungicides are used on the farm, and only very reduced herbicides (spot application) are ever utilized.

Full-bodied and nutty

BItter, silky, full-bodied, and nutty. A bold and flavorful bar.

The Nutty Professor

85% bars start to get too bitter for my taste, but that being said, if 85% is your jam, then this bar has a smooth melt with very nutty flavor notes and a slight bright acidity. Pump Street usually does an excellent job of processing their chocolate.

Pump Street Ecuador Hacienda Limon 85%

The maker states: this bar is made from Heirloom Cacao Preservation accredited cocoa beans from Samuel von Rutte's Hacienda Limon farm on the Guantupi River in Ecuador. An extremely palatable high-percentage bar with a rich aroma and a rounded, nutty character. I totally agree with the flavor profile described. It is quite bitter and very smooth too. Classic good extra dark.
