Definite is a small artisan chocolate maker in the Dominican Republic. Their tree-to-bar chocolate bars have already won awards at the Academy of Chocolate. For this bar, cacao from farmers in Villa Altagracia was used. Approximately 400 smallholder farmers work in this area with Biocafcao which supports them in the organic production of the beans. Biocafcao ferments the cocoa beans for about 6 days in wooden boxes. Then the beans are left to dry in the sun for seven to ten days.
