This bar represents dark chocolate in one of it’s rawest forms. The largest, thickest bar we’ve had in the bean bar you collection, we love the design and closeness to the origin of cacao. The cacao is from São Tomé and Príncipe which is nestled into the Gulf of Guinea off the west coast of Africa.
Chocolataria Equador was founded in 2009. It's a unique tree-to-bar collaboration with the Roça de Santo António plantation in São Tomé and Príncipe. A joint company was formed to link the two partners together and "guarantee the vertical integration of the entire transformation process of the fine chocolate, from the plantation to the chocolate". The islands were known the early 1900's a the 'Chocolate Islands' and were the worlds largest producer of cacao before the west African nations took over. Enjoy this special taste of the history and it's recent revival to Africa's second smallest country. See more
