Gentle Dark Chocolate, Esmeraldas, Ecuador

2 in stock

DESCRIPTION

Notes of flowers, tropical fruits and nuts in this Nacional cacao balance gently like the tree-hanging sloths under the canopy of Ecuador’s last cloud forest, where endangered tree frogs bask in the breeze.

The Rainforest Couvertures pack is made from wood fibers rather than plastic or aluminum or a combination of both. So it is natural, renewable and organically compostable. To protect the chocolates from light and oxygen and in perfect condition an ultra-thin layer of natural aluminum is steamed onto the wood foil. This layer is 0,6 nanometers thin and slows composting only by a matter of days: aluminium is the most abundant metal on earth. As luxurious as the new Rainforest Couvertures bag looks, you can dispose of it in the compost bin or the paper recycle box.

ORIGINAL BEANS CHOCOLATE WITH CACAO FROM THE ESMERALDAS COAST ECUADOR

Esmeraldas Cocao

Heirloom Arriba Nacional cacao remains unaffected by Ecuador’s boom in hybrid cacao, but is threatened by deforestation along with other flora and fauna. Notes of caramel and hazelnut with Fleur de Sel resonate throughout this rare Arriba cacao, floating down from Ecuador’s last Pacific cloud forest, where silky tree frogs bask in the humid breeze.

THE ESMERALDAS COAST

The Esmeraldas Province lies at the southernmost point of one of the most threatened and least known rainforest ecosystems on earth – the Chocó. We source our Esmeraldas cacao from Mache Chindul, the last coastal cloud forest of Ecuador which replenishes all major rivers in the region and is home to an enormous variety of plants and wildlife, including the spectacular Imbabura Tree Frog and the Mache Glas Frog.

SUPPORTING LOCAL FARMERS & ECOLOGY

In several village communities, Original Beans help to preserve and reforest local Arriba Nacional cacao varieties and provide training in organic cacao growing, fermentation, drying and quality control. In return to our investments, the community of Mono Bravo has already committed 800 hectares of highly biodiverse rainforest as a village forest reserve.
