ABOUT THE CHOCOLATE:

This drinking chocolate is made with our Madagascar cacao. Although it is 90% cacao, we find this to be well-balanced. It reminds us of red fruit, citrus, and jam. When you get into higher percentage chocolates they do tend to bring forth a higher intensity, but the more you enjoy them, the more subtleties in the flavour are unveiled to your taste buds!

This farmer-managed union of smallholder cooperatives is a successful demonstration of farmer entrepreneurship in the cacao industry. UCLS has built custom 3-tiered fermentation boxes to ensure quality control and consistency throughout the post-harvest process of their traditional fruity, flavourful Madagascar beans. Custom raised platforms are used for sun drying the beans.

The UCLS group operates like a big family, sharing learnings and techniques amongst each other to ensure collective development and wellbeing. Farmers use oxen-drawn carriages to bring cacao from the depths of the forest back to their fermentation unit, just one of the methods that UCLS members pride themselves on as one of the most resourceful communities in the industry. UCLS ensures substantial premiums beyond the average are paid to farmers, a well-deserved benefit for these high quality, unique beans.
