ABOUT THE BAR
This 70% dark chocolate, made from Tanzanian cocoa, has notes of red berries, tropical fruits, and pleasantly light brownie notes. But don’t just take our word for it!
ABOUT THE MAKER
Patrick and Peggy’s chocolate story began during the trip of a lifetime. Hopping on their bikes, the pair spent months cycling around Iran, Nepal, India and Mexico, before deciding to travel through the scarcely inhabited landscape of Belize. While travelling through the mountainous landscapes in the south of the country, the pair ran into the descendants of the Mayas, who were cultivating cocoa in the dense tropical rainforest according to centuries-old traditions. After returning to their home in eastern Germany, Patrick and Peggy found themselves dreaming of importing and distributing Mayan cocoa all across Europe, but soon learnt that most chocolates on the supermarket shelf are made from industrially produced cocoa mass and that there was no market for high-quality cocoa. The solution: to make chocolate themselves!
ABOUT THE BEANS
For this bar, Choco Del Sol have used beans from the Kokoa Kamili cooperative found in the Kilombero Valley located in the south-western region of Tanzania. The valley is located in a vast floodplain, nestled between the Kilombero River in the south-east and the Udzungwa-Mountains in the north-west. The cooperative works closely with farmers in a truly collaborative process; the farmers harvest the cocoa beans while the cooperative overseas the fermentation and drying stages.
