The Peruvian Gran Chililique beans in this bar give it a fresh and floral flavour profile. Look out for notes of tropical fruit, roasted macadamias, and a hint of greenery.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Marco Colzani spent his childhood playing in his family’s bakery and pastry shop just outside Milan. He studied agriculture and viticulture, and worked for a number of years as a wine producer before noticing the similarities between the bean-to-bar and wine industries. He soon returned to his family business and set about creating the very best bean-to-bar chocolate, first as an ingredient for chefs and then as a product in its own right. Now, he and his wife, Alice, are aiming to bring about a renaissance in Italian craft chocolate making.
These beans have been grown by 52 small-holder cocoa-farming families based around the village of Chililique, Peru.
