Maker CommentsLike many of the Caribbean islands, Haiti's history of growing cocoa goes back to the 1600s. That tradition continued throughout Haiti's turbulent history. In 2010 Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, was devastated by a catastrophic earthquake. This chocolate bar is made by Gerard in his atelier in Kent from the first harvest of cocoa beans in Haiti since 2010. Cocoa is like much of the agriculture in Haiti: small scale farmers have little training to work their crops, resulting in a yield per cacao tree that is 30% of the global average. As Haiti grapples with recovery, improving its cocoa crop offers hope for a better and more sustainable future. Gerard took great care in conching and refining these rare beans. The chocolate created is surprisingly gentle for its high cocoa content releasing as it melts notes of honey, chestnuts and wood.
