Finca Elvesia is a cacao plantation located in the northeastern part of the Dominican Republic where cacao plantations were first established on the island.
The plantation was founded at the end of the 19th century by Swiss immigrants in partnership with famous Swiss chocolatier Philippe Suchard. It became the largest cacao plantation in the Caribbean, even having its own railroad for transportation of the cacao to the port for export to Europe.
The farm has approximately 200 hectares of cacao with special fine flavour and aroma characteristics inherited from over 125 years of careful selection.
This bar was awarded Silver in the category “Dark Bean to Bar Flavoured” by the Academy of Chocolate in 2020.
