With a bunch of wholesale orders coming in, it’s becoming a challenge to meet the demand. We have a pretty rigorous set of taste tests each new bag must go through before we press it into service, and we recently reached the bottom of all of our current bags simultaneously. While this is a great problem to have, it means we are a little low on chocolate for Thursday’s Mission Community Market.
Luckily, we have a “vault” where we keep about 20 unpackaged bars of past origins that have gone out of season. We had intended to keep these as a permanent record, but we don’t want to let any of our regular market-goers down. In order to solve this chocolate crunch, we’re bringing back two great bars we haven’t sold in months, but only for a limited time. We’ll have bars from Tanzania and the Dominican Republic.
These are two awesome bars and I’m happy they are going to good homes. The Tanzanian has a long, clean chocolate taste. It’s super mild and pleasant (even more so that the Costa Rican). The Dominican Republic bar has a wonderful citrus and raisin punch — it’s very strong and more of an advanced bar.
We’re really happy to show these off for a few final tastes, so if you are around this Thursday between 4-8pm, come see us at the Mission Community Market (22nd and Bartlett) and let us know what you think.
