Our Camino Verde, Ecuador origin is known for its deep, fudgey notes that work especially well in baked goods and confections. Even within the same origin, the tasting notes will vary each year based upon annual rainfall, the weather conditions when drying and fermenting the beans, and other agricultural conditions.

Ground Chef’s Chocolate is not cocoa powder (crushed cocoa beans with most of their cocoa butter removed); rather, it is complete chocolate made of roasted cocoa beans and organic cane sugar, coarsely ground for fast, easy melting in the kitchen. This product is what we use in our pastry kitchen for hot chocolate, cakes, pies, creams, and more, because it melts more quickly and evenly than a chopped-up chocolate bar would.
Unlike our bars, Ground Chef’s Chocolate is not tempered, so it does not appear shiny. However, you’ll find the same range of flavor notes in our Chef’s Chocolate as in our bars. Look for everything from creamy, nutty, chocolatey, and caramelly aromas, to fruity flavors, citrusy acidity, and spice notes.
