    TASTING NOTES

    As the name suggests, the chocolate’s pale colour make it look more like a milk than a dark bar. The beautifully molded bar has a smooth texture and a slightly soft snap that immediately release an irresistible aroma. Sweet notes of vanilla, honey and caramel melt into each other. A haze of aromatic honeysuckle and jasmine create a delicious floral dimension that compliments notes of ripe apricot.

    ABOUT THE MAKER

    Karl Hogarth began a nautical career as a 15-year-old deck boy before becoming captain and moving into the gas and oil industry. He discovered chocolate in Guatemala, and was amazed at the variety of flavours he encountered. He soon decided to make his own chocolate in his shed and sell it at the local farmers’ market in Nelson, New Zealand, where he lives with his wife, Marina. He was amazed at the reception, and Hogarth Chocolate was born. Now popular around the world, Karl and Marina love experimenting with new flavour combinations, which they continue to try out at the Nelson farmers’ market every Saturday morning.

    THE BEANS

    These Gran Nativo Blanco beans were sourced from the Piura Valley of northern Peru. Rediscovered in 2008, the varietal was reintroduced to the region with the help of the Norandino Cooperative, founded in 1995 and now serving over 7,000 smallholder cocoa, coffee, and sugar farmers.
