“100% organic, 100% passionately made in house from pods to beans.”

Cacao Prieto was founded by Daniel Prieto Preston, whose family has been farming organic cacao in the Dominican Republic for more than 100 years.

The farm, named Coralina Farms, which supplies all the cacao for Cacao Prieto’s chocolates and spirits, is also the center for long-ranging experiments in self-sustainable and organic farming methods.

In fact, everything is 100% organic and  100% passionately made in house from pods to beans. From bars to bonbons, from hard science to the ethereal joy of tasting high quality chocolate. So, Cacao Prieto aims to link the best of the New and Old Worlds to re-define the manufacture, processing and, of course, the pleasures of chocolate and chocolate based liqueurs and rums.

In addition, they offer some pretty cool Chocolate Factory & Distilling Tours!

Here they explain a bit more in depth what the tour is all about:

“Cacao Prieto tours last 1 hour and include an in-depth look at the history of cacao in the Dominican Republic. Plus, see the beans to bar process, the machinery used for processing and science that makes chocolate the unique product it is.

From turn of the century antiques to patented machines invented in house, see how a raw fermented cacao bean moves from farm-to-bar through roasting, cracking, winnowing, milling, tempering, molding, and packaging. In addition, following chocolate is a look at distilling rums, liqueurs, and whiskey from grain-to-barrel-to-bottle.

Tasting flights of chocolate and spirits included.”

Lastly, if you don’t want to wait to go to their chocolate factory in Red Hook, you can buy online at their store. These organic beans-to-bar chocolates will definitely be a unique and pleasing experience for your palate!
