Dandelion Semuliki Forest, Uganda 70% Dark Chocolate
In the town of Kasese, near the landmark Semuliki Forest within Uganda’s rainy, tropical Rwrenzururu subregion, a registered social enterprise called Latitude Trade Company, Ltd. sources wet cacao beans from over 4500 smallholder farmers. Latitude ferments each farmer’s harvest in boxes built of local eucalyptus, then blends the many farms’ beans together post-fermentation and drying, thereby creating a uniform, consistently excellent product.
This bar has the characteristic natural fruitiness of Semuliki Forest cocoa, and roasts this batch to accentuate the beans’ tropical punch.
Tasting notes: cacao-fruit nectar, banana, and cream cheese

Free of soy, dairy, eggs, and gluten, and it is made in a factory that does not process nuts.
