Coto Brus is the only bean from Costa Rica designated as an official “Heirloom” cocoa in recognition of its longevity on the planet as well as incredible flavors. It is one of only 15 cacaos in the world recognized as Heirloom.
The beans are cultivated, harvested, fermented and dried on a small farm in Southern Costa Rica by brothers Giovanni and Raul Campos Portilla, with help from Giovanni’s son Raul. Goodnow is producing this as a limited release bar, as the Costa Rican farm produces small amount of cacao each year.
The flavor notes of this bar include caramel, plum and cocoa.
