Cloudforest Nest Chocolate

Brimming with warm spices, this buttermilk chocolate is a special treat. From Oregon’s Cloudforest, the Nest Chocolate Bar is a rich and lightly sweet bar bursting with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon—subtly evoking cozy, woodsy flavors. Delicious on a cheese board, this chocolate pairs well with earthy River’s Edge Up in Smoke.
- Chocolate and cheese make a great pairing: salty and sweet provide great contrast, and both share a complimentary richness that is even better together. Try this with Sartori Bourbon BellaVitano or Murray’s Honey Goat Gouda.
- An Oregon-based operation with roots in Ecuador, Cloudforest is a producer of chocolate and chocolatey products.
- Their chocolate journey started in 2009 with an attempt to understand the nuances of cacao and create unique flavor combinations. At that point, they were sourcing processed chocolate from makers in Europe.
- That changed in 2014, when Cloudforest launched their first chocolate bar made from single-estate Ecuadorian cacao. From then on, they took control of every step in the making of their chocolate, from raw bean to bar.
