‘Nibby’ Nahua

in't Veld

The nibbiest nibby chocolate to ever nib – starring one of the world’s current best cocoa beans. These are individually roasted by Holger, broken open, separated from the shell and, after the main rolling of the chocolate, combined with the previously separated nibs. In addition to bringing out each variety’s unique character, this makes for great intensity, crunch and freshness.

Nahua (Costa Rica)
Elegant, complex, subtly bitter, like a great red wine. Lots of red berries, almonds and some grapefruit bite.

About the bean grower

Nahua (Costa Rica)

Cacao Nahua was founded by Juan Pablo Buchert in 2015. Committed to creating sustainable livelihoods for some 400 farmers and workers in Costa Rica’s Upala region, Cacao Nahua’s “Cacao Renovation Program” helps farmers increase quality and productivity. Combined with a meticulous post-harvest process, this results in one of the best cocoa beans available.

in't Veld
...is Holger's Dutch surname, pronounced "in het veld" which basically means "farmer". Back in 2002, Holger left the illustrious world of music journalism at Germany’s wonderful Spex magazine to devote his attention to chocolate. According to Billy, he’s the one and only chocolate wizard – he’s so knowledgeable that even the dessert experts at CODA came to him to learn the tricks of the trade. The focus of Holger’s work is on sourcing the best cocoa beans and to manufacture them in a way that preserves their natural, pure essence. Once you’ve had Holger’s chocolate, you’ll forget all about the sugar-sweetened and milky travesties that pass for chocolate in the supermarket.
