This dark and intense 100% bar has a subtle woodiness and notes of chocolate brownie. Accompanied by a citrus burst and extra crunch from the cocoa nibs, this is one for the lovers of intense 100% cocoa.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Georgia Ramon was founded in 2015 by renowned pâtissier Georg Bernadini and his partner, Ramona Gustmann, to be a craft chocolate maker, shop, and café dedicated to producing the highest-quality handmade chocolate. Georg began his career as an apprentice confectioner in 1984, before going on to work as head pâtissier at the Michelin-starred Les Jardins de l’Opéra in Toulouse. Based in Siegburg, near Bonn, Georg has also used his extensive experience to write Chocolate – The Reference Standard, a comprehensive 920-page overview of the world of artisan chocolate makers.
The beans for this bar were sourced from Kokoa Kamili in the Kilombero Valley, Tanzania. Kokoa Kamili has been paying premium prices for wet cocoa since 2015, saving farmers the tasks of fermentation and drying and adding enormous value to their cocoa beans. In the height of harvest season, Kokoa Kamili employs 50 people from their village, and has set up a scholarship fund for local girls to go to the nearby secondary school.
