Castronovo Dark-Milk Chocolate - Sierra Nevada, Colombia - Rare Cacao Collection

This Castronovo dark chocolate bar is one with a story. While many artisan chocolates come from historic plantations or exotic locations, the Sierra Nevada Dark Milk bar has a unique story all its own. The bar originates from rare cacao that is grown along the slope of the coastal mountain range in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada. Collecting the beans is no easy journey, it takes a whole day to trek the mountainside, harvests the cacao, and return them on the backs of mules. Regardless of the hard labor, you will soon find out why it is so worth it.

Once the organic cacao beans are harvested, they are gently combined with organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, and whole milk powder. A combination that allows for the perfect dark chocolate bar to be created.

So what is so unique about these beans? Without using any artificial ingredients or additional flavorings, these beans naturally deliver hints of caramel with every bite, as well as a bit of fruity and nuttiness.

The flavors may sound simple but, as you know, their story is not. Which is a testament to the incredible character of this dark chocolate bar. If that was not enough for you, remember this bar has won seven awards. Many of them gold.
