Tres Hombres Chocolate 'Choco Sails' 52%

Roasted coffee & cocoa nibs

Op voorraad

NB! These organic Tres Hombres Chocolate Sails 52% are particularly tasty!

This delicious Tres Hombres Chocozeiltjes edition is made with 52% cocoa. The thin slices of dark milk chocolate are coffee-flavored with bittersweet cocoa nibs to make them extra crunchy. Cocoa nibs are small pieces of roasted cocoa beans without their skins.

The chocolate is made from high-quality Trinitario cocoa beans, sourced from the Conacado farmers' cooperative in the Dominican Republic. What makes this delicacy even more special is the organic coffee that is used in it. This comes from CooAgroNevada, a women's cooperative in the beautiful Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta nature reserve in Colombia.

The sailing freighter Tres Hombres sails the Chocozeiltjes to the Netherlands on the pure power of the wind. This sustainable sailing voyage starts in the Caribbean and takes the chocolate all the way to Amsterdam North, where it reaches its destination. This special sailing trip contributes to environmentally friendly transport and pays tribute to the tradition of wind-driven shipping. This is also home to the Chocolatemakers, who produce the best chocolate.

So while you enjoy this delicious chocolate, you are not only supporting the ship Tres Hombres, but you are also choosing sustainable transport! Can chocolate taste any sweeter?

Let the wind carry you away and taste the power of real chocolate! Also available in White chocolate and 70% dark chocolate.

The story

 

The life of the brigantine Tres Hombres began in 1943. At the time still without masts and in a wreck-like condition, she was discovered in 2007 by three friends in Delft, the Netherlands. With an incredible amount of diligence and dedication from many volunteers, she was brought back to life. Within just over 2 years we managed to completely restore the ship and convert it into a sailing ship that now crosses the Atlantic Ocean every year, sails the Northern European seas and covers these long transport distances exclusively with the power of the wind. 

Route

Map route Tres Hombres

The cocoa beans of this Chocozeiltjes edition are collected in the Dominican Republic during the winter trip. The first crew boards in Den Helder on a ship that is in tip-top condition after the refit has been completed. Trainees, and sometimes crew, rotate occasionally during the various stops made to load produce or stock up on food supplies.

Loading/Discharging ports:

  • Douarnenez, France 
  • Baiona, Spain
  • Santa Cruz de la Palma, La Palma
  • Fort-de-France, Martinique
  • Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Boca Chica, Dominican Republic
  • Horta, Azores

Previously used barrels are loaded in Douarnenez and Baiona and later filled with rum from La Palma and the Caribbean islands. These barrels provide an extra special taste that makes the Tres Hombres Rum unique. 

In Santa Cruz de la Palma, Fort-de-France, Marie-Galante, Bridgetown and Boca Chica the barrels are filled with different types of rum. Other products are also loaded on these islands, such as cocoa beans in the Dominican Republic for this delicious chocolate.

The stopover in Horta in the Azores is actually only to stock up on food supplies, but occasionally tea and tuna are also loaded there.
