Cacao for “Dark” was harvested earlier in the season, from February 21st through March 26th. These cacao pods spent more than half of their six-month life during the dry season. They were treated to plentiful rain and only moderate sun during ripening. As a result, these cacao beans were relatively more acidic than their “Light” counterparts, calling for a higher fermentation and also lending themselves to a more structured chocolate, with strong potential for aging.
