  • Description

    Dormouse has created a dense dark milk chocolate from Colombian beans. The cacao comes from the Arauca region of Colombia, which is near the Venezuelan border.

    Dormouse is based in Manchester and in 2015 became the city’s first craft chocolate maker, creating its delicious bars directly from the bean.

    Dormouse regularly produces micro-batches of chocolate in its stone grinders. Starting with raw cocoa beans it hand sort, roast and winnow (the slightly messy removal of the husks from the beans) before grinding, refining and conching, a process that can take several days. Finally Dormouse ages the  finished chocolate to allow the flavour to fully develop. By making chocolate this way Karen and Isobel of Dormouse can control every aspect of a bar’s profile and draw out the subtle flavour notes of each bean meaning that each batch they produce is unique.

    Tasting Notes

    This milk chocolate has a decadent, clotted cream texture that coats the inside of your mouth, unleashing its rich flavours. Hints of vanilla cheesecake and buttercream icing roll into caramel notes. A burst of fudgy berries on the finish.
