Bonnat 75% Nicaragua "El Castillero" Dark Chocolate Bar
"El Castillero" is a bar crafted with cacao beans from the biological natural reserve Indio Maiz considered the natural pearl of Central America. Stéphane Bonnat, was the first authorized to take Indio Maiz’s cocoa out of its homeland.
“We started to carry out projects like this (about fifteen in total) because our usual planters stopped cultivating cacao one after the other. You should know that, over there, the cultivation of cocoa is seen, at best as an ancillary activity, at worst as something for the ‘earthy asses’. A plantation is barely a hectare and a half in area. Our desire was therefore to make these crops profitable, and today our producers earn seven times more than the average income of the country” Stéphane said.
The result is an award winning bar with flavor notes of honey, yellow fruit, molasses, licorice and dates.
