UNSWEETENED ORGANIC BAKING CHOCOLATE 

The real taste of pure raw cacao is very apparent when eating 100% cocoa solids because there is nothing else added to the chocolate (no sugar, no vanilla, no milk, no extra cocoa butter). This is the real test of quality. Notice the floral nuances with dark earthy flavors and a slight wet cacao taste tempered with a smooth even melt.  We know the source of the cacao and the orchards and feel confident in the quality and safety.  The farmers tending the cacao trees are paid a living wage and they really enjoy what they do.  The Peruvian government carefully regulates all aspects of the cacao and ensures everyone involved is following good hygiene and care of the organic cacao to ensure sustainability and successful long term future.  The result is an unsweetened organic baking chocolate you'll feel good about. 

Unsweetened Chocolate Means It tastes Bitter.

The Differences in Flavor of our Pure Chocolate Types

The differences are based in the cacao origin and as a result flavor and viscosity.
 
100 Pure Dark Chocolate: Peruvian cacao from Northeastern Rio Tigre valley in the Amazonas region. The chocolate is earthy, slight fruit with pronounce bitterness giving way to floral and lingering cocoa notes.  The cacao is slightly lower fat so when melted it is a medium viscosity. The cacao is classified as Cuchillo Criollo. 
 
100 Dark Chocolate Rainforest dark: North Hispaniola from a micro climate area.  The chocolate is slightly more mild with hints of tobacco and red berry notes giving way to pronounce cocoa and finishing with a clean melt. The cacao is type of Trinitario with a higher fat content by 2% approximately so it is more fluid when melted.  

Santa Barbara Chocolate Unsweetened Chocolate Cacao Medallions recipes:

100 Dark Chocolate Fondue: 8 oz. unsweetened cacao chocolate + 4 oz. milk or dairy free rice milk + pinch of cinnamon.Mix and heat at medium temperature, stirring constantly. Dip your favorite fruit or nuts.

100 Dark Chocolate Truffle Ganache Vegan Friendly: 8 oz. unsweetened cacao chocolate + 4 oz. coconut cream + 1 tbsp. agave syrup. Mix and heat at medium temperature, stirring constantly, Once mixed well refrigerate to set. Once set use a spoon to scoop and ball ganache into truffles. Roll them in chopped nuts or our Red Cocoa Powder.

You can also use our Unsweetened Cacao Chocolate as a substitute for any unsweetened chocolate baking recipe. Use a 1:1 ratio by weight for the recipe.

How many medallions are in 1 ounce of the 100% dark chocolate? These coins vary so the numbers below are approximate.

16oz x 22lb = 352 ounces = 352 (1 ounce servings)
1.5 grams per coin = 18.6 coins per 1 ounce serving
18.6 coins per 1 oz x 352 ounces total = 6,571 coins per 22lb box

Santa Barbara Chocolatiers use the 100 Dark Chocolate as a base in making all of our couverture chocolates.  By adding in sugar you create chocolate percentage types.  For example, if you add 30% sugar to 100 dark chocolate you then have made a 70 couverture chocolate.

100% Cacao Organic Unsweetened Chocolate Amazonas is the taste of pure raw organic cacao. Grown in the deep jungle headlands of the Rainforest of Peru where the Amazon river flows down from the Andes. Exotic floral flavors with deep dark cocoa notes, taste the rarest and exotic cacao only indians from Amazonia have tasted. This is the best unsweetened chocolate brand.

    Product quality reflects company attitude

    Posted by Joe T on 14th Jun 2017

    I've know for years since first discovering this company that it has a philosophy of health for both the body and human spirit. They're ability to impress never fails. They support the troops overseas by shipping to APO (Armed Forces Post Office). The care they take when shipping is unparalleled. On a recent overseas shipment, the chocolate was embraced in two cold-packs with a cushion-sealed temperature control bag. Brilliant. If one pauses for a moment to think about the cost and effort in acquiring the finest chocolate provided by environmentally friendly harvesters, then add to that the cost of cold-packs and temperature control bags, it's a wonder how they keep their prices so reasonable. The quality of their product is superior. Jason Vishnefske and the staff and Santa Barbara Chocolate have no equal.

    Just My Opinion

    Posted by Alan Simberg on 25th Feb 2017

    I am very happy with the Santa Barbara customer service and that my order was delivered in a timely manner and in excellent condition. I didn't expect the cocao to be so bitter. Regardless I think it's a high quality product and it can go in a smoothie with some fruit. Not sure that I'll be ordering that particular product again. Please take my taste into account when reading my review.

    Exquisite

    Posted by Miro G. on 24th Jan 2017

    I use 5 or 6 pieces every morning. It is an acquired taste, but the feeling later on is difficult to describe. I feel full of energy which is completely under my control and I can channel it in any direction I like. Needless to say, I love the product and have been using it for quite a while.

    awesome

    Posted by Deanna B. on 21st Jan 2017

    Smooth and creamy, love the new bags, so easy to use and store. Just wish they came in extra small chips. Love to make chocolate chip cookies with this but hate to chop.
