Description

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.

 

Brand

Definite Chocolate

Award-winning chocolate sourced from only a handful of estates in the Dominican Republic, carefully crafted through Definite’s micro-batch operation. The result is fine dark chocolate with rich and complex tasting notes. 

Cacao was first introduced to the island of Hispaniola (the current Dominican Republic and Haiti) by the Spanish at the beginning of the 17th century, mostly as an experiment. In the lee of Pico Duarte, a now dormant volcano and the tallest mountain in the Caribbean, the cacao tree thrives on the rich soil found on this island. It’s from here that Definite Chocolate source their cacao.

By ensuring each bar only uses cacao from a single estate, Definite maximise the tastes and tones of their chocolate.
