This is a 2.5kg bag of 63% chocolate couverture.
These 63% couverture pistoles are made of fine superior cocoa with the deliciously fruity notes characteristic of Madagascan cacao. This wine-like dark chocolate has hints of raisin and berry notes making, fantastic for a variety of uses in the kitchen.
This chocolate doesn’t just taste good, it does good. Madagascan chocolate maker Menakao proudly crafts its chocolate on the island, using only local ingredients. Unfortunately, this is rare even for craft chocolate – it’s estimated that less than 5% of the world’s chocolate is produced in the same country the cocoa is grown. By making the chocolate in Madagascar in addition to growing the cacao on the island, Menakao generate about 4-5 times the benefit of Fair Trade for the local Madagascan economy.
