Spurred on by our 2020 award for Innovation earned by Applewood Smoking our tropically fruity Nativo 63%, we've approached the recent big Gold winner Esmeraldas 64 dark milk and smoked that too.
We've tried a few techniques and approaches, we're offering a lightly smoked 64. Perhaps imperceptible at first, subsequent tastes seems to build the smoky undernote until it's unmissable. Delicate smoke? You got it!

Cacao of Excellence 2018-2019 - Ecuador's only awarded cacao.
A masterful study of the depth and intricate elegance of fine cacao. Truly unique and utterly beguiling.
This 64% coconut dark milk chocolate is towards the stronger end of the dark milk spectrum, but very accessible and more creamy and lighter then the dark versions of the chocolate made with the cacao from Freddy Salazar's farm Costa Esmeraldas, 6 miles off the coast in NW Ecuador's Cloud Forests.
Made with coconut milk, but not overwhelmingly so, the coconut is delicately balanced against the chocolate notes and the bsicuity friuty flavours that naturally reside in this cacao bean.
Allergen information: contains no dairy, wheat, gluten, or soy (nut-free, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free). Made in a facility that uses nuts and soy. Vegan friendly.
