Haiti: PISA 74%

Tasting notes: honey, clover nectar, cranberry and light caramel. 

ingredients: cacao, cane sugar

This is a lovely dark chocolate made with cacao produced by Produits Des Iles SA (PISA), Haiti. This company is committed to changing the way cacao is processed and exported from Haiti. PISA’s launch of their centralized processing facility in 2012 was a revolutionary change in Haiti’s cacao production system, which was not focused on quality but rather a bulk unfermented commodity. Haiti shares an island with the Dominican Republic, one of the world’s largest producers of high quality organic cacao, and the team at PISA had a vision for Haiti’s cacao industry developing in a similar way as the DR. Now, PISA is providing smallholder farmers access to the specialty cacao market by purchasing wet cacao, centrally fermenting it, and selling it at a higher price for its higher quality.
