The starting point for our two ingredient, single origin Fiji bars is premium cacao grown by the Matasawalevu Cacoa Project on small farm in northern Fiji. Working on a 100 acres near the town of Dreketi, Matasawalevu uses traditional post-harvest techniques to produce beans with a distinct flavor profile that includes notes of raisins, dried fruit, and vanilla. They work through Cacao Fiji to process and export their beans and are part of a larger network of Fijian cacao farmers working to revive cacoa farming in their country and producing cacoa specifically for use by craft chocolate makers. We work through a wholesaler to purchase their beans and support their wonderful efforts. We then sort, roast, grind, winnow, conch, refine, temper, mold, and wrap each batch of bars by hand. We use pure organic cane sugar to add a bit of sweetness and to compliment the natural flavor of the beans. These bars are smooth and favorite of our customers who like dark chocolate that isn't overly bitter.
