Award Winner: Multiple Awards (Refer to the images on the left)
Tom, one of the brains behind Goodnow Farms, discovered this fine flavour bean after meeting Giff Laube and Jose Enrique Herrera, the owners of Cacao Bisiesto, at their farm just outside the town of Matagalpa. The beans are named after the town in and around which they’re grown, which is located in Nicaragua’s Central Highlands.
The wet cacao beans (baba) are sent to Giff and Jose who then ferment and dry them at their centralized facility located on their farm, which allows them complete control over the entire flavor development process.
This is one of the first beans Tom & Monica found on their travels through Central America and it holds a special place in their hearts!
The bar has a wonderful melt, and distinctive flavour notes of dried raisins, burnt caramel and well roasted black treacle. Tom recommends that this bar be enjoyed on it’s own – or with a glass of great wine (his recommendation, and favourite, being a cabernet red wine)
