Dormouse – Gaura Estate, Indonesia 75%
Rich and fruity with a warm spiced honey finish, this hand-wrapped bar from Dormouse is sure to be a winter favourite.
This 75% dark Mancunian bar, made from Indonesian beans, has a clean, rich, and fruity flavour profile with none of the smokiness typically associated with Indonesian cocoa. Reminiscent of caramelised fruit, it has notes of spice honey on the finish.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Dormouse is a one-woman bean-to-bar craft chocolate maker, established in Manchester in 2014. Isobel, the founder, started her chocolate journey as a student temp at a luxury chocolate shop, before becoming a bean-to-bar chocolatier and eventually investing in her own equipment. She crafts and hand-wraps every bar herself, and has built a strong reputation for her experimental and limited edition bars.
The beans in this bar are sourced from the Gaura Estate on the island of West Sumba, Indonesia. This 815-hectare family farm has a strong history of cocoa production, and their beans were recognised with a Cocoa of Excellence Award in 2015. Unusually for Indonesian cocoa, the Gaura Estate beans are sun-dried, which means they don’t have the smoky flavour often associated with the region.
