Dormouse – Gaura Estate, Indonesia 60% Dark Milk
A smooth and fruity dark milk bar from Manchester-based maker Dormouse.
This 60% dark milk bar, made with Indonesian beans, is rich and smooth and not too sweet. It enjoys the same hints of candied fruit and warm spice as the 75% dark of the same origin, with a bit of extra sweetness from the added milk.
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.
