We exclusively produce single-origin, single-harvest artisanal chocolate aimed at expressing the unique terroir in which it is grown—the valley of Piedra de Plata in Ecuador.
2018 was an unusually dry and cloudy year, arguably producing our most floral chocolate thus far. Our Rain Harvest 2018 is elegantly floral with hints of green tea, and is also available as part of our Reserve Collection, presented in a handcrafted wooden box with tasting utensils and a booklet that tells the story behind the harvest. Our Rain Harvest 2018 100% cacao edition has a distinct flavor profile of mochaccino with roasted almonds.
2019 was an extraordinary year—the weather in the valley of Piedra de Plata was generous and consistent. There were no surprising anomalies, unlike every other harvest year. The cacao fruit grew healthy, offering a rich and well-balanced flavor, as is evident in our Rain Harvest 2019, which has hints of mandarin and orange blossoms in its flavor profile.
The end of the 2021 growing season was one of the wettest on record, and we chose to experiment with conch times. As a result, our Rain Harvest 2021 (18 Hours Conch) has a fruit-forward flavor with strong floral tones, while our Rain Harvest 2021 (0 Hours Conch) has classic chocolatey notes accompanied by blackberry and coffee tones.
