This Nicaraguan cocoa is sweet and dense with notes of raisins and peanuts. Its deep bitterness is harmonised perfectly by the rich and soft flavour of the milk, melting like butter and filling the mouth with a velvety texture. Nibs add a crisp, aromatic touch.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Feitoria do Cacao was established by Tomoko Suga and Sue Tavares after an eye-opening trip to see the poor living conditions of cocoa farmers in São Tomé and Principe. They remain committed to paying a premium price for their cocoa beans in an effort to reduce the economic disparities between cocoa farmers and chocolate producers. Based in Portugal, they hand-craft their chocolate bars in micro batches to accentuate the natural variety of flavours in each delivery of cocoa beans.
