I'm VERY excited about this origin. Through another Michigan chocolate maker, I was able to purchase cacao from a family farm in Puerto Quito, Ecuador. Costa Esmeraldas, not to be confused with the location of Costa Esmeraldas, is a company owned by a man named Pedro. He has a beautiful agroforestry system with ancient Nacional trees.

I'm so excited to be able to directly support a single farmer and I hope you enjoy this. Scroll through the pictures of his farm on this page!

Ecuador has a rich history of chocolate dating back over 5000 years and makes up 9% of the global cacao supply. 60% of fine flavor cacao comes from Ecuador.

This bar has some very nicely balanced flavors. Grape jam like fruity notes near perfectly balanced with the warm cocoa notes of traditional flavored chocolate. I think there are some other notes hiding in the mix. I'm always interested to hear what you all think!
