Nostalgia Chocolate has a message for you…”Slow down and savor the moment.” No wonder I love this chocolate so much! It is crafted by people who think the way I do and lovingly place magnificent intentions into their process.
The Dominican Republic Reserva Zorzal 70% Dark Chocolate Bar is one that will leave you feeling utterly satisfied and like all is right with the world. Don’t you want to feel that way? This chocolatey, luscious bar has a generous flavor arc. After the deep, rich, welcoming notes of chocolate, hints of red fruit and the pleasant, mouth-watering acidity of citrus reveal themselves and then resolve into a final note that offers a touch of nutmeg. This is lovely, creamy piece of craftsmanship is a true classic.
Zorzal Cacao is a renowned 1,019 acre farm, fermentary and bird sanctuary located near the northern shore of the Dominican Republic.
Cacao experts partner with farmers in the pre and post harvest practices, and the resulting beans produce flavorful, crowd-pleasing chocolate bars!
Tyler and Tiffany Cagwin are the creative minds and makers at Nostalgia Chocolate. They are two yogis who love to travel, lead retreats abroad, sail, eat good food, and surround themselves with amazing, inspiring people.
Love led Tiffany and Tyler to chocolate. On their honeymoon, sailing down the Windward Island chain in the Caribbean, they tasted amazing chocolate from The Grenada Chocolate Company and it changed their lives forever. A beautiful seed was planted in Tyler’s mind and a few years later, it became clear to him that he was meant to be a bean-to-bar chocolate maker.
He began learning how to make chocolate from scratch and has been mentored by one of the finest chocolate makers and teachers I know, Mackenzie Rivers of Map Chocolate.
While devoting himself to his new craft, Tyler was inspired by simpler times when handmade was the rule rather than the exception. The name “Nostalgia” came to life for Tyler and Tiffany and brought with it a vision for the company. Their ethically and sustainably sourced cacao supports farmers while it encourages us, as tasters, to smile, savor the moment, and connect with one another on a deeper level over delicious chocolate.
