This bar features a hybrid cacao of the much-prized Ecuadorian Nacional bean – once thought to be extinct – grown on the green hills of Freddy Salazar’s aptly named Costa Esmeraldas estate. The Nacional varietal traces back as far 5,300 years and is one of the most coveted, thanks to its floral aroma and complex flavour profile. This bar is a striking contrast of its unusual dark appearance, but surprises with balanced notes of cherries, fudge brownies and subtle nuttiness.
