Felchlin Elvesia Dominican Republic 72% Dark Couverture Chocolate Cocoa Pod

Elvesia Dominican Republic Organic 74% Dark Couverture Chocolate

Grand Cru Couverture made of Noble Cacao from the Hacienda Elvesia, Dominican Republic

Around 200 years ago, Swiss emigrants settled on the peninsula Samanà, in the Dominican Republic. They founded the plantation “Hacienda Elvesia” and began cultivating Criollo and Trinitario cacao. Soon the aromatic fruits became a much soughtafter raw material for well known European Chocolatiers. In order to facilitate the transport of the heavy bags, Swiss pioneers built a railway – from the plantation to the port of Cano Hondo. The plantation is based on the principle of sustainable agriculture in harmony with nature. The Hacienda is run by Jo Locandro and offers work for around 60 people..

Main harvest: October – March

The Elvesia Couvertures are certified organic.
Elvesia 74% – 72 h: Bio Knospe

Suhum Ghana Organic 65% Dark Couverture Chocolate

An Economic Empowerment to Local Farmers

Cacao grows particularly well in dry sandy soil in Ghana. The climate change with its delayed rainfall and reduced water levels creates challenges during the planting phase. Ghanaian farmers only have a simple infrastructure available. Yayra Glover, Felchlin’s partner in Ghana, helps to expand the knowledge of farmers through diverse research projects. His vision has become reality: Cacao grown in the whole Suhum District complies with Organic and Fairtrade standards. In the Suhum region in Ghana Felchlin works with the Yayra Glover Project. Yayra Glover is a pioneer in Ghanaian organic agriculture and was the first person in Ghana to create a direct connection between the farmers in the Suhum area and our Swiss manufacture. He believes that organic cocoa farming and the implementation of climate resilient and sustainable agriculture is essential to fight the effects of climate change in Ghana and Africa. Organic farming cooperatives like the Yayra Glover project represent an economic empowerment for the local farmers, create sustainable jobs, income and access to the organic market with a high quality product. The prohibition of dangerous and unapproved agrochemicals protects both, the environment and the health of the farming communities.

A Mixed-Blend of Ghanaiain & Ecuadorian Cacao

This blends perfectly combines Ghanaiain & Ecuadorian cacao. Felchlin’s long-term, more than 15 years, direct partner in Ecuador works with around 550 farmer families in the Napo province of Ecuador. The cacao grows in socalled Chackras, where biodiversity is thriving. Next to cacao plants big trees like the Chuncho or Bàlsamo, home to the Amazonian jungle, grow and function like umbrellas to protect the cacao trees from heavy rains and provide much needed shade. Their strong roots prevent the soft Amazonian soil from Erosion. Chili plants and their scent work as a repellent for insects whilst other trees with sweet fruit lead them away from the valuable cacao. Edible plants like yucca, vanilla or ginger or medicinal plants like the Guayusa provide not only additional income for the farmer families but also food and healthy nutrition for them and protected animals who live in the Chackras. These extended standards of organic agriculture are not only providing the profitable certifications, but also permit the indisputable unison with Pachamama, mother earth.
