Dark chocolate DUARTA 70% ORGANIC

Dominican Republic Duarte

Description

Duarta 70% is the first organic chocolate in the Pures Plantations range and its aromatic profile holds its own against the rest of the range. The cane sugar is overshadowed by the intense fresh notes of blackcurrant and black cherry. 

Origin

Unlike major producers, the Dominican Republic has managed to hold onto its plantations' genetic roots. With marine soil unique to the country, Dominican soil contains some of the least cadmium heavy metal in the world. Fewer chemical products are used meaning its cocoa production is among the purest in the world.
