Ancient Ecuador 85%
Our 85% bar crafted with cacao from the legendary Hacienda Victoria farm in Cerecita, Ecuador. These particular beans are of an Ancient Heirloom varietal dating back thousands of years, making this bean extremely rare. We give this bar a light roast and a heavy conche to give it clarity of flavor unmatched at this percentage.

Was rather pleased to how delicious this chocolate was. Normally with the 85% and higher bars, the taste can be too rich and overwhelming. Not the case here. Would definitely buy again when I restock with Stone Grindz.
Great chocolate. It is amazing that there is so much difference in taste between different coco producing regions. All very good in there own way.
Awesome chocolate with perfect balance of cocoa and sugar. I can't exactly say what I taste except for greatness.
I adore this chocolate so much - one of my absolute favorites. Well I do love the bitterness of higher percentages (80-85 is my go to). This one is unique - it’s high percentage, and yet, so smooth, not that bitter, and layered with flavor.
