56% dark chocolate, this is a pure Ecuadorian chocolate made from fine flavuor cacao, the Nacional bean from Ecuador.

It displays a taste of white flowers followed by toasty coffee sensation with a round and powerful chocolate finish.

As a characteristic finale it has a nice body combined with the emblematic bitter notes of the Ecuadorian Nacional cacao.

In our experience a good pairing partner for many whiskies.

ABOUT REPUBLICA DEL COCOA

Republica del Cocoa proudly source their ingredients locally, supporting local farmers and economic growth.

The cocoa beans in this chocolate come from the towns of Quininde and  Borbon in Ecuador, the milk comes from the provinces and Azuay,  Canar, Chimborazo and Morona Santiago. The sugar comes from just over the Ecuador border, from selected farms on the Colombian coastal plains of Guachene.

Most of their chocolate is made with the Nacional bean; a variety that dates back to the Mayans but was thought - by everyone - to be extinct. That was until 2009 when a group of scientists went deep into the Ecuadorian rainforest and DNA tested 10,000 trees - and from where they discovered SIX trees of a Pure Nacional strain. From this, Republica del Cocoa and others have been pursuing the regeneration of this ancient strain and today the Nacional bean represents 3% of global production - and when you’re eating Republica del Cocoa, there’s a good chance you’re eating the chocolate of the Mayans!
