A purist’s delight, this single origin extra dark chocolate bar features heirloom cacao sourced from the highlands of Ecuador. The Arriba Nacional cacao beans we use to craft this bar are smooth and strong, with flavor notes of hazelnut, cashew, and orchid. Like all of our chocolates, we choose not to roast our cacao beans, which allows a more wholesome flavor experience that pays homage to the flavor and genetics unique to this uncommon varietal. Additionally, the cacao we use to craft this bar is wildcrafted direct from the small biodiverse plots in the Ecuadorian backcountry. We pay a premium to the small community of harvesters who maintain this heirloom strain of cacao to promote a sustainable alternative to the clear-cutting and mono-cropping techniques that have decimated millions of acres of rainforest over the last century.
