What a Chocolate, Notes of Whisky and spices give this bar a more savoury finish. We love the contrast of flavours which delicately unfold on your tongue.
On the southern pacific coast of Colombia, Tumaco is a region that has been hard hit by historic political conflict and plagued by narco trafficking. The predominantly Afro-Colombian population has faced a great deal of prejudice and sustainable local development has been hijacked by extensive penetration of paramilitary and narco groups. When Cacao de Colombia first explored the region back in 2011, they found cacao everywhere; drying on any flat surface farmers could find, including the road. The sheer volume of cacao was overwhelming, and the opportunity for quality and systemic improvement was obvious. Cacao de Colombia has worked with three community cooperatives to introduce centralized processing and drying. Because of the introduction of centralized processing and Cacao de Colombia’s expertise in high-quality flavor development, farmers today earn 70% more income from cacao than they did when selling dried beans to the commodity market supply chain, and have a true sustainable alternative to cacao production or involvement in the narco groups.
INGREDIENTS: CACAO NIBS, CANE SUGAR, MILK POWDER, COCOA BUTTER.

As chocolate is such a temperature sensitive product, we cannot take responsibility for any melting that occurs in transit for international orders. We do however take the upmost care with packaging and insulation, as we know the pain of receiving melted chocolate all too well.
Also, we cannot take responsibility for any duties or taxes that customs may decide to charge on arrival of international orders. This does not usually apply but if you are ordering a large amount you may want to double check your county's rules and regulations on this matter.
