Tasting Notes: classic dark chocolate, buttermilk, and raspberry
The beans for this bar come from Maya Mountain Cacao, Ltd., a social enterprise that buys freshly harvested, unfermented cacao from indigenous Mayan smallholder farmers in southern Belize, then gathers the beans at a centralized fermentary in Punta Gorda. By fermenting and drying all the beans in one place, Maya Mountain Cacao carefully controls quality and flavor consistency in their cocoa, allowing them to fetch a high price. This in turn empowers Maya Mountain Cacao to pay farmers extremely well for their beans.
Trevor was the origin owner of our Tokyo factory’s Maya Mountain bars in both 2015 and 2016, as well as of the 2018 bar produced in San Francisco. For this 2021 harvest, he crafts a bar that is surprisingly fruity for such high-percentage chocolate.
