Single Origin, Dominican Republic Cacao, 70% Dark Chocolate. Our Hispaniola 70% blended with Vancouver Island Salt Co. sea salt.
Salt unlocks hidden flavours in chocolate and sharpens existing notes. After trying salts from around the world, we came across a wonderful salt crafted by chef Andrew Shepherd. His Vancouver Island Salt Co. is one of the few in North America that hand-harvests sea salt. The cool Pacific waters create something extraordinarily unique and delicious. We love what it does to our chocolate. Enjoy, Enjoy. It's made from single-origin Trinatario cacao, cultivated by growers in the northern Dominican Republic.
Real chocolate starts with high-quality cacao beans sourced from the best cacao farms in the world. Each bean has unique terroir, or character and flavour, and as craft chocolate makers, Humming Bird Chocolates challenges themselved to find the best possible expression of the cocoa through their chocolate making process.
their process is rooted in traditional 18th century style chocolate making techniques, but modernized through Hummingbird’s own innovative and industrious style.
Chocolate is a delicate balance of art and science and they make their chocolate slowly, in small batches, with careful attention to detail at every step. Their chocolate makers are diligent and patient folks, carefully checking, monitoring and testing to ensure quality is preserved throughout.
It takes ten steps and over a month to craft their chocolate from cacao bean to yummy bar. They love our craft and nothing is more important to them than taking the time to do it right.
