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.
100% organic, 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, 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.
You can find them in stores here.
