Manoa is a Hawaiian-based chocolate maker. Hawaii is the only state in the USA to grow cacao. The story of this maker began in the labs at the University of Hawaii in 2010 studying cacao as a crop for the state. Manoa started as college students with no money and bootstrapped their business with ingenuity and determination.
A 70% bar made with 'Neo-Nacional' cacao, a rare variety from the Costa Esmeraldas farm, tasting of roasted nuts and dried fruit. Costa Esmeraldas is a family-owned and operated cacao farm. Their orchards were established less than a decade ago on steep terrain along Ecuador's northern coast.
