How does it taste? Sakura is a Japanese pickled cherry blossom with a sweet-salty-tart flavor, in Washington DC (about an hour and a half from our factory) the en masse blooming of cherry blossoms turn the city pink for a short while each spring. We paired the lovely flavor with tart cherry and a dark chocolate base.
What pairs well with it? Enjoy with Japanese oak aged whiskey, sakura tea, horchata, dry red wine, vanilla macarons, or Sencha green tea.
Ingredients Made with our oko caribe direct trade organic cacao, organic dried tart cherry, raw fair trade organic cane sugar, and sakura.

Maker process This bar is part of a Spring collaboration collection with Avion Clothier and Simone White. Avion Clothier specializes in men's and women's luxury shirting designed by Katherine Tsina Bird, Artist Simone White is to thank for the lovely bar artwork. This single origin chocolate is crafted from bean to bar by our 10 employee team lead by Nathan Miller and Chelsea Russo. We start with the raw beans that are hand sorted for quality. Once sorted we roast the cacao, stone grind until the mouth feel of the chocolate lets us know it's time to remove (usually around 3 days), and temper in small batch. Once the bars are molded, our team inspects each one for cosmetic beauty and uniform look. To finish of this item we wrap it in a handmade craft paper that's hand dyed, sun dried on screens, and sustainably produced. We hope that as you enjoy this bar - the feel, taste, and experience is a unique pleasure.
Complimentary cold packing on shipments heading to warmer destinations, weather checked by our team daily.
