Also known as organic unsweetened chocolate, these Organic Cocoa Liquor Drops are made from premium quality cocoa, sourced sustainably through an Equal Partner Direct Buying Program and processed by experienced chocolatiers in Italy. The raw cacao bean is fermented, roasted, and ground into a paste to make cocoa liquor.
Starting in the early 1980s, the company from which we source these cocoa liquor drops began developing an Equal Partner Direct Buying program to secure a reliable supply of high quality fermented beans by respecting the rights of farmers to a fair price and an independent livelihood.
They were the first commercial customer for fermented cocoa beans from CONACADO, the Dominican farmers cooperative that is now one of the world’s most important sources for premium organic cocoa.
Beyond the Dominican Republic, the family has strong Equal Partner relationships in key cocoa-sourcing origins such as Ecuador, Peru, and Africa.
Due to traceability procedures implemented along their supply chain, they are able to confirm that the chocolates we offer do not contain any cocoa beans from the Ivory Coast.
