- Guayas. 70%, single origin from Ecuador. Tasting notes: fairly sweet for a dark chocolate, fruity. [ Slight coffee notes ]
- Dos Rios. 70% single origin from the Dominican Republic. Tasting notes: Has a very strong orange flavor. I was incredibly surprised to learn that it didn’t have any orange anything added to it.
- Chuao Reserve. Venezuelan. Tasting notes: This was very smooth. Flavors were well rounded. Tasted milkier, even though it was a dark chocolate.
- Monrobe. 70%, single origin from Papua New Guinea. Tasting notes: Fairly earthy.
- Madagascar 70%. Tasting notes: Light color for a 70%. Good snap, but not creamy. Raisin flavors. Bitter, almost coffee like flavor.

Not a local chocolatier, but I've seen them at a few recent events, including the SF Chocolate Salon and the Good Food Awards, so I've had a chance to try a few of their chocolates. They won the Good Food Award for the Guayas, but I got to try three others as well. All contain cocoa butter and vanilla.
