Costa Rica, Hacienda Azul 70% Dark
At long last, Hacienda Azul is here! We fell in love with this cacao when we first tried it a few years ago, and are proud to include this bar as the newest addition to our lineup!
Hacienda Azul is a small farm located in the rural town of Turrialba in the province of Cartago a couple hours east of Costa Rica’s capital, San Jose. It is managed by the Zeuner family and employs 8 people full time. The famed CATIE university of agriculture is also located here and has provided 5 different clones to the farm. The beans are washed prior to drying and we’ve found this cacao fascinating by it's versatility.
Tasting notes: Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds
