Matagalpa, Nicaragua, 72% Dark Chocolate Bar

$11.00

Crafted with care and precision, this elegantly flavorful, 72% dark chocolate bar brings together the richly complex flavors of carefully grown cacao from the biodiverse, highland forests surrounding Matagalpa, Nicaragua.

Cacao from this region demonstrates a singularly unique flavor profile that can act like a culinary Rohrschach test--some describe it as earthy and floral, some like candied brown fruits and black tea, some like whiskey and olives. While this bar may taste very different to different tasters, there is no doubt the exceptional quality of Nicaraguan cacao shines in this remarkable chocolate.

We are proud to partner with Birds Georgia, a bird and people centered conservation and advocacy non-profit organization, on this chocolate bar and we would love for you to know that our garden variety birds in Georgia (and the US South East, generally) are the same bird species that winter in habitats like the healthy forests that produce the cacao in this bar. By selecting chocolate made from shade-grown cacao thriving in biodiverse forests, you are helping to sustain responsible agroforestry techniques that benefit both people and animals--like your backyard birds.
