About our special limited-edition tasting sets:
In each of our tasting sets, we explore a specific aspect of craft chocolate making, from genetics to fermentation to roasting. Every set offers an opportunity to sample bars that are extraordinarily limited or rarely paired, and which we believe tell an interesting flavor story that wouldn't be apparent alone.
About the Zorzal Estate three-bar harvest series:
This set presents a unique chance to experience the wide range of flavors a single bean can express under differing climatic conditions. Each bar was crafted from one of only three annual harvests (2016, 2017, 2018) fully produced — grown, harvested, fermented, and dried — on site at Zorzal Estate, Dominican Republic, before co-founder Dr. Charles Kerchner moved processing operations to a flatter, less humid location in nearby Los Arroyos at the end of 2018.
Our R&D Operations Manager Ron Sweetser treated the three batches of Zorzal beans identically in our factory, using the same roast profile, melange, and sugar-addition timing in order to highlight the fascinating flavor differences caused solely by annually varying conditions on the farm.
Included in this set:
- Three 70% bars from three Zorzal Estate harvests: 2016, 2017, and 2018
- Informative tasting guide
- Ingredients & Allergens
All of our single-origin chocolate is made with just cocoa beans and sugar; no added cocoa butter, lecithin, or vanilla. Our chocolate is free of soy, dairy, eggs, and gluten, and it is made in a factory that does not process nuts.
