This cocoa is grown by Hacienda San José Real de la Carrera, one of the biggest privately-owned plantations in Central America, with an area of about 350 hectares. Hacienda San José also owns its own processing facilities in order to transform their cacao into semi processed products and chocolate.
Exe chocolate selected these beans for “their enticing and mouth watering green apple acidity that comes after the deeper notes of raisins, black tea and caramel”.
Nicola Knight's cocoa journey began with a tourist visit to a plantation in the Caribbean in 2011, and an idea that just wouldn’t go away. There must be more to chocolate? Since then Nicola's chocolate journey has taken her to becoming a certified chocolate taster, chocolate educator, and now a self-taught chocolate maker.
Made in micro-batches in a tiny home chocolate factory in Exeter, with a dedication to hands-on small batch making. Each bean has a unique flavour profile, which is allowed to shine in every single batch.
