Maker's comments Single origin dark chocolate made from cacao grown in Upala - Costa Rica. In my small workshop in Woodbridge (Virginia), I handcraft chocolate starting with the whole cacao bean. I work to coax out the best flavours with each step - from roasting, cracking and winnowing the beans, refining, mixing and conching, to tempering and moulding the final bars. Enjoy!
