Kilombero 72% Bar
The two founders of Kokoa Kamili started their careers in international development and saw the value in paying a higher price for cocoa farmer's produce as the best way to benefit local communities. Since 2015, they have worked with local farmers to raise the profile of Tanzanian cacao by creating central fermentation, and growing and distributing new seedlings. Farmers also receive training in cacao cultivation and ultimately receive a higher price for their cacao.
At 72% the result is a smooth bar with slight complexity; earthy chocolate, slight caramel and just a hint of citrus.
