3. Hibiscus Flower Chocolate Bar from Cuna de Piedra

Cuna de Piedra is an homage to Mexican cacao.  This single estate 73% dark chocolate and hibiscus bar uses chocolate from the Mexican state of Tabasco with flowers harvested by the indigenous community “Numa Gamaa Ski Yu Me’Phaa” high in the mountains of Guerrero, Mexico.  The members of the Me’Phaa community have been cultivating the creole Hibiscus tree for centuries and this variety is known for being particularly robust and aromatic.
