About This Set

Sea Salt - 75% (1oz/28g)

Salt affects flavor in curious ways, thanks to the tricky flavor receptors in our brain. It subdues some flavors, and enhances others. Paired with the right cacao, salt can be another tool for manipulating the flavor of the chocolate we create!
Our friends at Bulls Bay Saltworks collect water from Bulls Bay, SC, in the protected Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, home to one of the healthiest saltwater ecosystems on the east coast. This pristine site produces a unique salt with natural purity and a distinctive flavor.
This chocolate contains seventy five percent cacao and is sprinkled with flake salt. The salt brings out the jammy fruit notes in the profile, which combine with the flavor of peanut butter.
The Sea Salt 75% bar is dairy-free and suitable for vegans.
IngredientsCacao, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Sea Salt.

Scorpion Pepper - 72% (1oz/28g)

Peppers and chocolate make a good pair,” says grower and pepper enthusiast, Bobby of Jah Works Farm in Asheville. Both possess euphoric qualities, boost energy, and lend themselves to tasting with discernment: relishing the layers of flavors that reveal themselves slowly, and differ slightly on everyone’s tongue. Scorpion peppers are among the most piquant in the world, with more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units. Aside from the heat, The Scorpion offers a tender fruit flavor, which makes it the perfect pepper to pair with a fruit-forward cacao blend.
This chocolate isn’t a badge-of-honor experience meant to burn you from the inside out; our use of The Scorpion is judicious. We taste the fruit notes of both the pepper and the cacao.
Ingredients: cacao, sugar*, cocoa butter, dried Trinidad scorpion peppers.
*certified organic ingredient

Peru - 70% (1oz/28g)

CAC Pangoa, a large cooperative with over 700 farmer members, is at a crossroads. Most of their cacao production is undifferentiated “commodity cacao.” But under the leadership of Esperanza Dionisio Castillo, with support from an organization called Conservation Cacao, the members are being encouraged and trained to devote a portion of their production to fine flavor varietals with more attention given to the quality of harvest and fermentation. Conservation Cacao’s mission is to save the rainforest through sustainable cacao. The chocolate you are about to taste brings this effort to fruition.
This two-ingredient single-origin chocolate contains seventy percent cacao and has a cinnamon bark aroma. The flavor profile is tart cherry and lemon, over a creamy cocoa base.
The Peru 70% bar is dairy-free and suitable for vegans.
Ingredients: Cacao, Sugar.

Nicaragua - 68%  

On February 29, 2012, two cacao enthusiasts founded Cacao Bisiesto; hence the name (Bisiesto is Spanish for ‘leap year’). Giff, an ex-Peace Corps expatriate, and Jose Enrique, a Nicaraguan cacao agronomist, live in the Matagalpa region of Nicaragua, where Criollo and Trinitario cacao varietals have been cultivated for generations. Both brought years of professional experience and a shared vision to their partnership. To preserve heirloom varietals of cacao, they pay a premium to local farmers for Criollo-infused seed with fine flavor profiles, and plant rare varietals on their own farms. Then they ferment and dry with precision.

The 68% dark chocolate made with this exceptional cacao has won us recognition in the Good Food Awards and at the esteemed Northwest Chocolate Festival. It has an earthy quality and offers flavors of black coffee and licorice.

This chocolate bar is dairy-free and suitable for vegans.
Ingredients: Nicaraguan cacao beans, organic sugar.

Malted Milk - 44% (1oz/28g)

A Homage to Beer City

Asheville has won national attention for its thriving craft beer scene, boasting more breweries per capita than almost any other U.S. city. Rising up to support this industry is a new kind of malt house, one that provides locally-farmed, artisan malts that bring depth and character to beers. We are honored to collaborate with this innovative business, Riverbend Malthouse, to bring you our Malted Milk Chocolate: a milk chocolate featuring Heritage barley malts, locally milled by community grain miller, Carolina Ground. To create this chocolate, we toast malted barley, and grind it with our cacao and organic milk powder.

It holds the honor of being the reigning favorite in our bean-to-bar lineup among the residents of Asheville as well as international judges, bringing home in 2016 both a silver medal in the Americas category of the International Chocolate Awards and a finalist ribbon in Garden & Gun's Made In The South Awards.

This chocolate has a creamy, malty flavor, with aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. It might bring you back to your youth, when ‘malt’ meant a light, chocolatey milkshake.

Ingredients: sugar*, cacao, cocoa butter*, non-fat milk powder*, malted barley flour, butter oil (milk)*
*certified organic ingredient

Milk+Chocolate - 43% (1oz/28g)

We have fond memories of eating chocolate as kids: Eating s’mores around the campfire; sipping hot chocolate with marshmallows after sledding on a Snow Day; sorting Halloween candy with our friends after trick-or-treating. All of these nostalgic experiences revolved around a dear flavor to us: classic milk chocolate.

With our Milk Chocolate, our intent is to recreate this iconic flavor, and elevate it with superb ingredients and expert attention to detail. We feature a much higher cacao percentage compared to the milk chocolates of our childhood (think 43% instead of 11%), with organic milk powder and browned butter.

Our Milk + Chocolate 43% bar took a Silver medal in the Americas category of the prestigious International Chocolate Awards

This chocolate is a smooth & creamy, not-to-sweet, grown-up version of a childhood favorite.We taste caramel, cream, and yes, hot cocoa with
marshmallows.

Ingredients: Cacao, Cacao Butter, Sugar, Nonfat Dry Milk, Browned Butter.
