2022 Harvest

Provenance: Matagalpa - Nicaragua  50 grams.

NOTE: This is the 80% cacao version of our Bisiesto bars. 

Where the 70% is a bit sweeter, the 10% difference in this bar delves even deeper into the fine cacao origin. For cacao origin aficionados like ourselves, this is a memorable bar with a profound taste that will have you reaching for a noble tea or a fine whisky to pair it with. 

A hard-to-get cacao origin that we were very fortunate to get.

Our tasting notes: Dried red fruits on the initial taste with a subtle herbal and lightly nutty melt. Deep fudge after taste with light herbal notes remaining. 

Ingredients in this chocolate bar: Criollo and Trinitario cacao beans, organic cane sugar and cacao butter.

Healthy, Nutritious and out of this world delicious!
