What’s in my chocolate box?
The tasting will consist of the following three bars:
-Ucayali Peru 60% Dark Milk Chocolate – Ucayali River Cacao is a central fermentary that works with nearly 400 cocoa farmers along the Ucayali River outside of the Peruvian city of Pucallpa. The region has a long and complex history of narco-trafficking and the presence of the Shining Path militant group. Ucayali River Cacao has partnered with USAID and Alianza Peru to offer a premium for wet cacao, giving local farmers access to an alternate market to cocaine. Tasting Notes: Chocolate Phosphate, Yogurt Covered Raisins, Apricot
-Esmeraldas Ecuador 75% Dark Chocolate – Costa Esmeraldas is a relatively young family-owned, single estate farm that is operated entirely by the Salazar family. Located in the Esmeraldas province of Ecuador, a region not traditionally known for fine flavor cacao, the farm has reclaimed land once occupied by cattle pastures. The Salazars have collaborated with cacao expert Dan O’Doherty on the farm design and the post harvest facility. Tasting Notes: Mocha, Turbinado Sugar, Floral Honey
-Bejofo Madagascar 80% Dark Chocolate – Bejofo Estate is an organic cacao orchard that is part of the larger Akesson Estate in northwest Madagascar’s Sambirano valley. Managed by Bertil Akesson, who has specialized in growing ﬁne cocoa, pepper, and other spices for many years, Bejofo Estate produces 300 tons of cocoa a year. The cocoa has been designated as certified “Heirloom” by the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Initiative (HCP). Tasting Notes: Red Fruit, Fudge, Pink Grapefruit
