Bar Notes:
This bar has tamed the Nacional of Peru's Marañón Canyon with a superior, roller-dried milk powder, which subtly caramelizes the casting of this canonized cacao while summoning the supple chocolate more so than its "darker" counterpart- the 72% bar. Once considered practically extinct, this heterozy-gemini varietal presents a 60/40 mix of purple and white seeds, which sings a song of floral and fruity alto notes anchored in creamy baritone nuts, touched in the end by the tannins of their skins. Bought in wet mass at small farms throughout the canyon before being transported by burro and motorbike to a central processing facility, the cacao receives a special hand-sorting and mixing before being fermented in local Laurel wood boxes. Post-fermentation, a proprietary pre-drying process assures a lower level of volatile compounds post-processing, ensuring the consistent character of Nacional can persevere across continents and palates; space and time; hearts and minds. Here, is presented a delicious distortion: the modern silk of milk.

About Piety & Desire Chocolate

Located right in the heart of New Orleans, Piety & Desire offers a premium chocolate sourced responsibly from "Bean to bar and beyond". That means that they produce their chocolate starting from cacao (i.e., cocoa beans) that we then roast, winnow, grind, refine, and temper into bars, bon bons, and other confections! This process takes about week from start to finish.

Their ingredients are responsibly sourced locally and internationally. They purchase cacao via Direct Trade (directly from farmers, cooperatives, or producers) or via what some call Conscious Trade (from a distributor who buys Direct), meaning they pay 3 - 4 times the commodity price and so-called "fair trade" prices of cacao. This ensures that farmers are paid justly for their goods, which in turn ensures a consistently high-quality product. Furthermore, they use only the finest quality, local ingredients while never using any preservatives or artificial flavorings. Their products are as fresh as they get!

All of their chocolate is made in their studio in Mid-City New Orleans.
