One of two Peruvian dark bars from Chapon, this a very different bar from Chapon’s Fortunato Peru bar.
A refreshing and creamy dark chocolate. Sweet green notes of fresh vegetables dominate the bar. We detected a little green pepper adding a hint of spice to the grassy chocolate. The pepper develops, bringing up menthol and licorice. Despite the initially smooth and mellow experience, the bar finishes on a more intense note. The bar ends on an earthy and slightly astringent finish.
Patrice Chapon is the pâtissier-chocolatier behind artisan maker Chocolat Chapon.
After completing a degree in patisserie, chocolate and ice cream and working in restaurants in France, Patrice moved across the channel. Here he joined La Maison Du Sorbet, who supply ice creams and sorbets to Buckingham Palace. He became fascinated by chocolate during his stay in England, and has said he took trips to Harrods daily to visit the chocolate hall.
Crafting great chocolate from the bean doesn’t happen overnight. Patrice had to research, find the right equipment and even make his own machines, specially adapted to his requirements, and since 2010 he has been on a mission to create great bean to bar chocolate.
