Vanua Dark- Fiji 70%

Collections: Microbatch Bars

The Mataswalevu Cocoa Farm, located in the northern hills of Vanua Levu Island, is looking to revive the cacao industry in Fiji. Their farm grows Amelonado cacao with newer plantings of Trinidad Selected Hybrids (TSH).

On Fiji’s national flag, there is a cacao pod in the lion’s paws, a sign of Fiji’s history and exciting times ahead for a new generation of farmers. The beans are special, imparted by Fiji’s unique terroir and the Fijian concept of “vanua”, the idea of land being an extension of oneself, including one’s life, sustenance and culture.

Origin: Dreketi, Vanua Levu, Fiji
Tasting notes: chocolate, honey, grapefruit

For fun we did 2 versions made from these beautiful beans. One Dark 70% one Milk 55%

UPDATE MAR 24: We have decided to shut down operations for 14 days for our little team to self isolate, recharge and do our part to protect this beautiful community. In the next couple of days we will work on getting all present orders out. The news is changing every hour but the present plan is to reopen the web store and resume shipping and drive and drop services April 7th. Until then we will keep connecting, post updates, and be checking emails remotely to answer any questions you might have.
