A marriage of two very different beans, both from the same origin. This dark chocolate bar combines our spring 2019 harvest Philippine cacao beans from Davao with freshly roasted coffee beans sourced by our friends Iona & Paolo of Kapé Coffee. This semi-washed coffee is grown in the highlands of Bansalan, by award-winning coffee grower, Ate Marivic, part of a farmer owned co-operative in Davao del Sur. This synthesis of cacao & coffee beans yields notes of dates, roasted chestnuts, and muscovado sugar.
Award: International Chocolate Awards, 2020 World Bronze, 2020 Americas Silver, 2020 Canadian Gold.
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
