description:We’ve hand-selected the highest quality Organic and Fair Trade Oko Caribe cacao available for this unique chocolate. Our light roast highlights naturally occurring acidity with hints of raisin and fig. Days of stone grinding achieve a silky texture. Next, the chocolate is heated, mixed and aerated, this is conching. Our subtle conche step softens the edge from the cacao's natural character while leaving its complex flavors in the forefront. A small amount of added cocoa butter enhances the chocolate’s silky texture as it melts on your palate.
