Waialua Estate’s Hawaiian cacao, grown along the banks of the Kaukonahua stream, the North Shore’s rich, fertile, sweet soil, provides an exceptional “terroir” to the chocolate which exhibits dark cherry, berry and raisin flavors. Waialua Estate Extra Dark Chocolate 70% Cacao yields deep cocoa flavors and hints of berry overtones with a rich, velvety smooth texture.
Waialua Estate’s cacao trees are a special blend of Criollo, Trinatario and Forestero varieties sourced from some of the finest cacao estates in the world. Waialua Estate Chocolate is made in collaboration with Guittard Chocolate Company of San Francisco. The partnership with Guittard brings expertise and advice in the fermentation and drying of cocoa beans, key elements to flavor enhancement.
With 135 years of experience in artisan French style chocolate production using family recipes passed from generation to generation, Guittard offers assistance in product development that helps to elicit the subtle flavors, aromas and textures that distinguish Waialua Estate Chocolate.
Under the Kokoleka brand, Guittard also produces Milk Chocolate and Semi-Sweet 55% Cacao Chocolate made from Waialua grown cacao.
