This high-percentage bar enjoys zesty notes of raspberries and sweet red fruits with a pleasing astringency on the finish.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Firetree’s founders, David Zulman and Martyn O’Dare, possess a wealth of chocolate expertise and passion. David ran a large confectionery business in his native South Africa before coming to the UK, and Martyn spent many years setting up factories all over the world for both Cargill and Cocoa Barry. Back in 2017, they joined forces to create a unique small-batch, single-estate craft chocolate company in the UK. The inspiration for their name comes from the cocoa tree’s yellow, orange, and red pods, which from a distance make the tree look like it’s on fire.
The beans in this bar are grown in the Sambirano Valley on the northwest coast of Madagascar, where a humid micro-climate and rich volcanic soil makes it the perfect place for growing cocoa trees.
