Cacaoken – Milk Chocolate with Sea Salt
Out of stock
This is an exceptionally rare single estate chocolate bar from Japanese maker Cacaoken. We only have a very small number of these craft chocolate bars and they will be available for a limited time only.
Cacaoken is short for ‘cacao laboratory’ in Japanese. It crafts all its chocolate bars in its laboratory in Fukuoka. And on top of this it has a farm and research lab in Vietnam. Here it grows cacao and experiments with bean fermentation. The bars all use these Vietnamese cacao beans (sometimes blended with Ghanaian cacao).
As well as plain milk, dark and white bars, Cacaoken also creates chocolate using local Japanese ingredients. Two of its dark milks won Bronze at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2015. This bar is made from a blend of Vietnamese and Ghanaian cacao, with milk from Hokkaido and sea salt from Nagasaki Prefecture. The sea salt in this bar is slowly boiled down in a flat kettle.
This bar received a Bronze Award at the 2017 International Chocolate Awards (American · Asia Pacific Semi Final).
Please note this chocolate bar weighs 20g. In Japan Cacaoken only gives three months’ shelf life so please be aware the bars have very short dates.
