La Esmeralda, Single Estate

Flavor profile
Medium chocolate notes. Ripe fruits and olive. Light acidity and hints of woods (cedar), and spices.

Single Estate cacao beans, an exceptional profile originated from our very own Hacienda La Esmeralda, an enchanting farm located in San Francisco de Macorís.

Founded by Héctor Rizek Sr., Hacienda La Esmeralda was the first cacao farm owned by the family. The exceptional flavor profile for this chocolate reflects the formidable quality of the cacao beans, and the meticulous preservation of the estate. With an extension of almost 112 acres and trees that are over 40 years old, La Esmeralda produces approximately 1,200kg on a yearly basis.

These beans were awarded “Cocoa of Excellence” by the International Cocoa Awards organization in 2013.
