L’ESTERRE ESTATE CACAO FARMERS

L’Esterre is a family-run cocoa and nutmeg estate that’s been within the Ramdhanny family for the past seven decades. Literally translating as ‘Land of the East’, L’Esterre is tucked in the north-east of the island, surrounded by gentle hills of thickly forested land, bound by a river. Falling just on the outskirts of the rainforest, it benefits from frequent rainfall and rich, volcanic, fertile soil. Still very much at the heart of the family today, they grow organic cocoa & nutmeg, employing natural agroforestry techniques, mimicking nature with mixed cultivation, maintaining the rich soil and its biodiversity.

Fermentation: 7- 8 days
Drying: 6 -7 days
Harvest season: November – April

ONE BAR FOR NOW, ONE BAR FOR LATER

Each Heinde & Verre box contains 2 bars, one bar for now, one for later. At Heinde & Verre we take chocolate and your enjoyment very serious. Quality chocolate needs to be protected so we have developed the perfect packaging to preserve all the natural flavours. An aluminium pouch protects against light, humidity, dust and dirt. A double air tight seal protects against odours. We have extracted part of the air to reduce oxidisation and moisture.
