Product Description

Product Details:

Only once in a long while is a truly great chocolate created. This bar is one of those. We have created this chocolate exclusively with beans from the Ocumare Valley in Venezuela. The beans from Ocumare create a chocolate that is rich and chocolately but is also complex in flavor with hints of red fruit such as plum. We have created this bar using our traditional machinery and our own touch of love. If you have been waiting to see what an American chocolate maker can do, this is the bar for you. We won gold at this year's London Academy of Chocolate with our Ocumare 70% dark chocolate bar. Come check out what all the discussion is about.

The Chocolate Maker's Notes:

When I buy cocoa beans, I have the opportunity to visit a wondrous array of communities that are far from the beaten path. Ocumare is one of them. Ox-cart width streets lined with colonial houses testify to Ocumare's long history. Ocumare's cocoa has been highly prized and exported since at least the 1600's. The people of Ocumare are gentle and humble; whose culture is a mix of Indigenous and Spanish with influences from the Caribbean. I greatly enjoy my time in Ocumare visiting with its people, telling stories, sharing our chocolate and enjoying their cocoa.

It is hard labor intensive work growing cocoa. Each time I make chocolate from these wondrous beans, I always think of the time that I spend in Ocumare and of the hard work that its humble farmers put into growing and preparing them for me. The least I can do is to try to honor their efforts with vision, care, and love.

    Both Dos Rios and Ocumare Bars have been an eyes opening experience for our family. We have never expected or experienced Chocolate Bars to be so delightful, so multilayered and so complex. They are like poems!
