Dandelion Chocolate

Origin: California

Size: 2 ounce


SKU: 13696


The beans for this bar come from Hacienda Azul, a single estate just north of Turrialba in central Costa Rica. The cacao trees on the estate grow in a diversified agroforestry system surrounded by jungle flora in a biodiverse habitat. The beans come from six genetic types of trees selected by CATIE—a nearby cocoa germplasm and research institute—that are especially high yielding and disease resistant. These agricultural traits are excellent for producers, but don’t always go hand-in-hand with good flavor.

Dandelion roasted these beans at different temperatures to create a dynamic range of flavors highlighting the beans’ intrinsic sweetness.

Tasting Notes: chocolate almond biscotti, and buttery caramel

Dandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the Mission District of San Francisco. They roast, crack, sort, winnow, grind, conch, and temper small batches of beans and then mold and package each bar by hand. By sourcing high quality beans and carefully crafting tiny batches, they are able to coax out the individual flavors and nuances of each bean.

Simply made with cocoa beans & organic cane sugar; no added cocoa butter, lecithin, or vanilla.

Dandelion Chcocolate is free of soy, dairy, eggs, and gluten, and it is made in a factory that does not process nuts.
