Crayfish Bay organic dark chocolate bar made with 75% cacao is a true single estate ‘tree to bar’ chocolate bar, handmade and charcoal roasted at Crayfish Bay Grenada by Kim and Lylette Russell.
Crayfish Bay has designed its own unique roaster which uses charcoal. We believe it to be the only commercial roaster of this type in the world. Charcoal is purchased locally which supports the village economy. All the wood used for making charcoal is the result of storm damage or land clearance. No trees are cut down specifically for the making of charcoal and this system of roasting gives our chocolate its own unique flavor.
Our chocolate is truly a single estate ‘tree to bar’ product which never leaves the farm until completion, which means that the beans are as fresh as possible. This increases the variety of flavors as it melts in your mouth.
Many chocolate makers want to make a product that is absolutely consistent in taste. This is not the case at Crayfish Bay. Throughout the season the beans vary in terms of moisture content and acidity levels. They are processed as separate pick batches which result in slight but noticeable flavor variations in each batch made. The texture remains ultra smooth and the flavors full.
