This 70% dark chocolate, on taste, offers quite a bit of mouthfeel sensation. The aroma is rich and chocolatey, and on the tongue it initially gifts a bright acidity with a cooling sherbet feel during the melt. The flavour is, as one might expect from a Madagascan chocolate, fruity with a subtle liquorice finish.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Charlie Burke, the founder of BOHO, started his chocolate journey in the 1980s, when he opened a small chain of chocolate and confectionery shops in New England, USA. Having always wanted to craft their own chocolate, Charlie and his partner, Suzanne, set out in 2014 to learn how to make the very best bean-to-bar chocolate. They founded BOHO after a trip to South America with Taza Chocolate to visit farmers, cooperatives, and local chocolate makers. The name BOHO is short for Bohemian, which signifies their “organic, artistic, and independent approach to making quality chocolate.”
The beans in this bar are sourced from Bertil Akesson’s estate in Madagascar. Bertil’s beans are famous throughout the craft chocolate world, having produced countless award-winning bars and winning many awards themselves. They typically lend their bars a fruity flavour profile, and it’s an endless source of enjoyment for us to see all the new ways makers find to bring out their very best.
