We are delighted to bring you this exclusive limited edition 70% dark chocolate bar. Fresco’s Rob Anderson has crafted this bar exclusively for Cocoa Runners.
We love this bar for its fantastic melt: pop it in your mouth and you’ll notice how smoothly and evenly it dissolves, giving way to a delightful mouthfeel. Light roasting and a long conche ensure that the mellow dark chocolate notes allow the flavours of stone fruits to slowly rise through.
Based in Lyndon, Washington, the story of Fresco’s creation is not a conventional one. In 2010, Rob Anderson, a computer scientist from southern California, began his bean-to-bar journey after inspiration struck on a visit to the legendary Scharffen Berger factory. Rob’s approach is both unique and scientific in its simplicity: use the best possible ingredients and change the variables that affect taste one at a time. Whilst most chocolate makers undertake this process when creating their bars, the journey stops there as they pick their favourite cocoa percentage, roast and conch time to make a finished product. Fresco, however, release each variation, so that we can see what a profound difference these subtle changes can make, and so that we can choose our own personal favourites. We think that you’ll be amazed just how much difference changing a single variable can make on the flavour of chocolate!
Created and packaged exclusively for us, this bar is not available anywhere else in the world. Rob made us a one-off batch, so once these bars are gone they’re gone.
