One of the best flavoured bars we've ever tasted. Vibrant cacao from Öko Caribe in the Dominican Republic is paired with organic blackcurrants from Finland, creating a deep and fruity bar that bursts with the flavour of fresh blackcurrants.
Standout Chocolate is made by Fredrik Martinsson in Kållered, Sweden. This particular bar is part of Fredrik's Nordic Nature range.
Nestled in the heart of the cacao-rich Duarte province of the Dominican Republic, Öko-Caribe (or “eco-Caribe,” in German) is a gem amongst cacao suppliers. Öko Caribe maintains close relationships with its 127 producers through technical training in agronomic practices and organic certification. In addition, owners Adriano and Gualberto have personal relationships with all producers, offering microfinance loans for cacao-related expenses, as well as personal loans for family emergencies or other community needs. In 2020, Öko invested in more fermentation boxes and solar drying decks to increase their volume potential and better serve a growing craft chocolate market with high quality cacao with flavor notes of vanilla, marzipan, and coconut cream.
