Dandelion Chocolate

Tasting Notes: molasses, chocolate pudding, and a hint of blueberry

The beans for this bar come from Freddy Salazar’s estate near the coast of northern Ecuador. Eric, our origin owner for Costa Esmeraldas, has spent time at the farm and was impressed by the close attention Freddy and his team pay to every step of cultivation and production, including pruning trees, managing disease in the field, efficient harvesting practices, and careful loading of the fermentation boxes to ensure a clean facility. Freddy has built one of the most sophisticated processes we’ve seen, and it shows in the flavor of his beans. 

While Freddy's consistently tasty harvests often feature dairy and fruit aromas, Eric works with this batch to allow even sweeter notes to shine. We taste molasses, chocolate pudding, and a hint of blueberry.
