Goodnow Farms Special Reserve Las Palomas Coffee
Goodnow Farms Special Reserve, Las Palomos Coffee bar is inspired by the single origin cacao beans used for multiple-award winning Asochivite chocolate. The bright fruit flavors of these Guatemalan cacao beans is paired with George Howell’s fruity Las Palomas coffee beans from Guatemala, creating an incredibly fruity chocolate. The coffee whisperers at George Howell do a custom brew and then the Asochivite nibs are soaked in the coffee until all of the nuanced flavors of the freshly brewed coffee completely infuse the nibs. They are carefully dried before adding them to the stone grinders to make chocolate. The addition of fresh pressed Asochivite cocoa butter not only makes the bar intensely flavorful and exceptionally smooth, but also ensures true single origin Guatemalan flavor.

- 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."
