TASTING NOTES

West African chocolate is famous for its “chocolatey” flavour – this is the flavour most people associate with chocolate from their favourite childhood chocolate bars. This delicious dark milk combines that traditional flavour with the deep complexity of craft chocolate. A smooth melt is filled with notes of fudge and chocolate brownie, with delicate hints of vanilla and toffee on a long, lingering finish.

As Annalisa Barbieri wrote in her Notes on Chocolate column for the Guardian:

“…let us not even talk of its 65% Kuapa Kokoo, rich with flavours of toffee, which I once ate in two sittings.”

ABOUT THE MAKER

Chocolarder crafts its chocolate in Falmouth, Cornwall. Chocolarder’s exciting line of fine single-origin bars and delightfully innovative locally-inspired inclusions use only top quality ingredients that succeed in doing better for the environment and the communities at their source. The whole company has at its heart an ethos of “ethical transparency”. Mike Longman – founder and chocolate maker – is unwavering in his commitment to a truly transparent and sustainable production process, even to the point of transporting his beans to Falmouth by sailboat.

THE BEANS

The beans in this bar were sourced from Kuapa Kokoo Cooperative in Ghana. Ghana is the world’s second largest producer of cocoa beans, but its impact on the craft chocolate market has been small. That’s because it’s one of the regions hardest hit by the mass-producing chocolate corporations and their unsustainable, unethical sourcing practices, so farmers face enormous challenges to improve the quality of their cocoa. Kuapa Kokoo is determined to change that. Certified by FairTrade and Rainforest Alliance, it helps educate farmers and campaigns for gender equality, labour rights, and an end to child labour.

  1. Chris E.

    I found this to be sweet and milky, not dark enough for me. It also had a powdery texture which I didn’t like.

  2. DAVID P.

    Delicious. Got the brownie and toffee aftertaste. Recommended

  3. Ben S.

    Mellow with quite unusual flavours – I get a bit of a mushroom taste
