We buy the cacao directly from a cooperative of about 2000 smallholder farmers committed to organic farming. The cacao grows in the Kilombero Valley bordering the Udzungwa Mountains, surrounded by highly fertile land, with good rainfall. The 2015 harvest has strong notes of dried figs and raisins as well as hints of red fruit and wood. It is well rounded with low astringency and a high natural sweetness.
