Goodnow Farms Cafe con Leche
Goodnow Farms Cafe con Leche chocolate bar is sweet and creamy, with a subtle coffee flavor. There are also subtle flavors from the Boyaca chocolate (graham crackers and toasted marshmallow).
Maker’s Choice, Cafe con Leche starts with mixing Boyaca cacao from Colombia, organic sugar from The Green Cane Project, organic milk powder from Organic West milk and finally whole Ketiara coffee beans directly sourced from Sumatra by our friends at Barrington Coffee Roasters. Ketiara is a woman-led cooperative located in the Sumatra Aceh Gayo highland. The coffee beans are ground fine along with the cacao and sugar during the refining process in our stone grinders. This is an exceedingly smooth bar! Organic West sources milk from family run dairies on the west coast. All the cows are pasture raised, and their milk is always antibiotic, GMO and rBST free.

- ABOUT THE BRAND
In words of Tom & Monica the founders of GoodNow Farms “We’re often asked “why single origin?" and the answer is simple – much like coffee, different cacao beans have different flavors. By using beans sourced from only one farm or region we’re able to highlight the distinct flavor characteristics of that particular bean. Discovering those flavors is one of the joys of making (and eating!) single origin chocolate.
We’ve spent a lot of time on farms throughout Latin America searching for the most flavorful beans, and have developed direct relationships with the farmers who grow and harvest them. By dealing directly with farmers we’re able to ensure that they’re fairly compensated for their cacao, and also that the farming practices they’re using are sustainable.
All of our bars are made here at our 225 year old farm in Sudbury, Massachusetts. We start with cacao beans and sugar, and perform every step of the chocolate making process in-house, including carefully hand wrapping each bar.
We believe that great chocolate is “true to the bean," in that the flavors apparent in the bar reflect the flavors hidden in the bean. The process of making this happen is extremely time consuming and labor intensive, but we believe the experience of eating our chocolate makes it all worthwhile."
