Goodnow Farms Limited Release "Yasica Especial" 70% Dark Chocolate

$ 35.00

This very special bar is crafted from the single sack of ancient Nicaragua Criollo beans that were produced by farmer Giff Laube this harvest season.

Over a decade ago Giff discovered what he thought may be ancient Criollo trees in a remote jungle near the Yasica river in Nicaragua. He had the leaves from several trees tested by the USDA, and one tree (identified as “Laube 1” on the test results) turned out to actually be ancient Nicaragua Criollo. Giff cleared a section of his farm away from his other trees and began to propagate this ancient Criollo through grafting.

This year, almost ten years after first beginning this labor of love, Giff’s painstakingly grafted and nurtured trees finally produced enough beans for a single sack of dried cacao. He sent Goodnow Farms that sack.
