2017 Harvest Dominican Republic

Nestled in the heart of the cacao-rich Duarte province in the Dominican Republic, Öko-Caribe (or “eco-Caribe,” in German) is a gem amongst cacao suppliers. With more than 50 years of combined experience in cacao, owners Adriano de Jesus Rodriguez and Gualberto Acebey Torrejon have fine-tuned their systems to ensure consistent, superior quality in their 500+ tons of annual production. Öko-Caribe maintains a close relationship with its 165 farmers through technical training in agronomic practices and organic certification. In addition, owners Adriano and Gualberto have personal relationships with all farmers, offering microfinance loans for cacao-related expenses, as well as personal loans for family emergencies or other community needs. The loyalty between Öko-Caribe and the farmers they work with is not only evidenced in daily interactions between staff, management, and farmers, but also in their best-in-class, award-winning product.

Description

Kajkab’s approach to creating chocolate is very similar to the process of making wine. They only use natural ingredients with no fillers (such as cacao butter, artificial flavors, synthetic emulsifiers, etc.) to let each variety show its unique character. Single origin chocolate is chocolate that’s made from one variety of cacao harvested in one region.

Why does this matter? Cacao is a plant. Like other plants, its beans take on the characteristics of the region where it’s grown—its terroir. Many terms used to describe single origin chocolate will be familiar to wine lovers—earthy, floral, herbal and berry, to name a few. When cacao is blended, the effect of terroir is lost, just like wines.

All of Kajkab’s single-origin tasting palettes are hand crafted in small batches with just two ingredients: cacao beans and organic sugar. No added cocoa butter, lecithin, or vanilla.
