Letterpress Dark Chocolate - Dominican Republic, La Red

"In the northern town of Nagua, La Red Guaconejo was our favorite farm we visited in the Dominican Republic in 2014. Working with over 150 local farmers who use sustainable agroforestry systems rather than conventional monoculture, La Red was a model for fine flavor cacao. Unfortunately, La Red closed its doors in early 2015, unable to pay farmers for their cacao. We were lucky enough to obtain the last bags from this very special co-op. Once our supply is depleted, that will be the end of this dark chocolate bar. We hope they come back."*
