Flavor Notes Of Strawberries And Citrus Found Naturally In Premium Cocoa Beans From Dominican Republic. Described as paradise by Christopher Columbus, the Vega Reál is one of the most fertile valleys in the Dominican Republic. Translated as "Royal Meadow," this lush, tropical garden found in the mountain highlands nurtures the finest cacao plants. The earthy-toned beans are harvested at the peak of freshness and then crafted to reveal a luxurious, complex flavor that hints of red berries and dark spice with a wonderful cocoa aroma. These incredible natural flavors come to life when you brew a cup of Vega Reál, made from 100% pure, perfectly roasted cocoa beans.
