The single estate cacao beans used to make this chocolate are grown in Costa Esmeraldas (Emerald Coast) in northern Ecuador. This family owned and operated farm, situated on emerald green hills overlooking the ocean, grows unique strains of native Ecuadorian ‘Nacional’ cacao. This chocolate, made with beans from the 2019 harvest, has notes of cassis, oak, and red wine.
Oliver, Vince, Stefan and Dominik met playing hockey in high school. In 2015 they all had other professions, when Vince inherited a small plot of land in the Philippines and brought back some cocoa beans. The 4 friends got together for a weekend of chocolate making and got hooked on the process. After making chocolate every weekend and getting feedback from friends & family they launched Kasama in late 2016. Now, each friend has a unique role in the chocolate making process. See more
