Description

Öko-Caribe is a cacao processor in the town of Pimentel in the Duarte province in the north of the Dominican Republic.

The Duarte province is the largest cacao growing region in the country and Öko-Caribe maintains close relationships with over 150 small farmers within the region providing training and organic certification support.

The farmers harvest the cacao pods, open them, extract the pulp-covered beans and bring them to Öko-Caribe who then complete the fermentation and sun-drying process.

This bar was awarded Bronze in the category “Dark Bean to Bar (under 90%)” 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.
