Like most women, I love chocolate and it is something I simply can't live without. But do have to admit, I'm what my husband calls, a chocolate snob. I enjoy GOOD chocolate, and make no mistake not all chocolates are equal. I'm excited to hear that The Latest Batch is sharing Costa Rica's best chocolate to the rest of the world. The Latest Batch imports all of their cacao directly from nature-minded farmers in Costa Rica. Then, longtime chocolate maker and chef Jay Holecek finely tunes small batches of chocolate in his lab in Windsor, California – midway between San Francisco (to the south) and the Mendocino National Forest.
The Latest Batch began with the idea to share this hidden gem in its most delicious form – fresh, dark chocolate. Freshness is important as you always get our chocolate within a month of when we make it. And we use just two ingredients – Costa Rican cacao and Costa Rican cane sugar.Lots of folks are surprised that with only two ingredients, every batch tastes different. Just like a wine’s flavor comes from the grapes and how they’re processed, so it is with chocolate and cacao (say it with us… “kah-cow”).
When you are ready to try some amazing chocolate from Costa Rica be sure to check out The Latest Batch.
