To'ak Chocolate is known for having the most expensive chocolates in the world, with some of their single bars costing up to $450! Why? The cacao is grown in Manabi, Ecuador, which is to cacao what Burgundy is to wine. Beans come from the rarest variety, pure 100% Nacional, which is over 5,300 years old. To'ak also promotes sustainability and conservation. Barefoot is proud to offer these one-of-a-kind chocolates.
Story: For true tea aficionados, Pu'er needs no introduction. Exclusively grown in the Yunnan province of China, and one of the only teas to earn an official designation of origin, Pu'er sits at the apex of the world of tea. Pu'er itself is an aged tea and this To'ak chocolate bar has been aged with it.
Pairing Recommendations: Peaty Islay single malts (Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Bowmore), triple-distilled Irish whisky (Redbreast, Tullamore Dew), a rich and well-aged Cognac. Zacapa 23 rum always works. Sweet dessert wines like Sauternes can work well. Creamy and nutty cheese—mild Brie, triple-cremes, Gouda.

Keep your beans fresh by storing them in this BPA free airtight storage container. This unique product forces air out of the container rather than trapping it inside. Air and light are enemies of the bean, so less exposure to them means your beans stay fresh longer.
