This 80% bar has a great length and a pleasing astringency on the finish. The profile is lightly citrusy with notes of cinnamon, cookie, and coconut.
ABOUT THE MAKER
You may have seen renowned chef, restauranteur, and pastry maker Jordi Roca on his own episode of Netflix’s The Chef’s Table. A trailblazing culinary figure, he discovered the magic of cocoa on a visit to the Awajún native community in Peru. He saw their under-appreciated dedication to the craft of cocoa farming, and determined to make bars that – as with wine – resemble the people who create them. He partnered with chocolatier Damian Allsop, and together they have successfully launched a boutique hotel and café in their hometown of Girona.
The beans for this bar were sourced from KahKow’s Hacienda La Esmeralda plantation near San Francisco de Macoris, Duarte, in the Dominican Republic. Los Bejucos beans from this area have earned a Protected Designation of Origin for their consistent high quality and distinctive citrus flavour notes.
