Goodnow Farms Maker’s Choice, Black Urfa Chili
Maker’s Choice Black Urfa Chili bar is another flavorful collaboration with Burlap & Barrel. It is a Public Benefit Corporation building new international food supply chains that are equitable, transparent and traceable.
Other than adding heat like most chillies, Urfa Chili, boasts of many complex flavors due to the fermentation process it undergoes after harvesting. It has been paired with single origin Zorzal Communitario cacao from the Dominican Republic to make this bar. The Black Urfa Chili used in this bar is sourced by Burlap & Barrel from Southeastern Turkey, just outside the city of Şanlıurfa. Zorzal Cacao began planting fine flavor cacao on the reserve in Dominican Republic, including ICS, UF and local varietals. What started as 20 acres has now grown to almost 200. Zorzal also purchases cacao from fifteen local farmers, at prices 50% higher than the local rate.

- 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."
