This box maps chocolate’s historical journey across the globe. From Colombia to Ghana, currently the second largest exporter of cocoa.
Zotter – Labooko Dominican Republic 40% Milk
This sweet and creamy milk bar from Zotter, manufactured in Austria, has a lovely smooth melt which elevates the flavours of the Dominican Republic beans.
Original Beans – Colombia Arhuaco Businchari 82% Dark
Typical of all Original Beans bars made in Switzerland, this dark chocolate has an incredibly smooth melt full of deep flavour. This intense dark chocolate bar has a sherbet-like aroma that runs into notes of fruit and hazelnut. Hints of sweet spice, liquorice, and sesame round off the finish as this delightfully smooth chocolate melts in your mouth.
Bare Bones – Paquibato, Philippines 70% Dark (Seasonal Bar)
A smooth and rich dark chocolate bar packed with so much nuttiness and cream, you would think they were added! Always thinking about the environment, Bare Bones’ chocolate boxes are made from recycled paper coffee cups, making it recyclable, and the inside chocolate wrapper is formed from plants, making it compostable.
The Observer’s chocolate correspondent, Annalisa Barbieri, speculated that this might be one of the best chocolate bars ever. (In her own words “the best dark chocolate I’ve ever sampled“):
Feitoria do Cacao – Maranon Valley, Peru 72%
This chocolate, hand-crafted in Portugal from beans grown in the Peruvian Andes, has a fragrant floral aroma of orange and sandalwood. Hints of Earl Grey tea appear within the creamy melt, giving a beautifully deep, long finish.
Moka – ABOCFA, Ghana, 72% Dark
This dark chocolate bar has an intense chocolatey taste on first melt, developing cinnamon and stone fruit notes.
