Mestico – Forastero 72% Dark Chocolate
Out of stock
Brazilian tree-to-bar chocolate maker Mestiço has been growing cacao for over 40 years at Fazenda Bonança, in Itacaré, Bahia. Mestiço plant and graft productive and resistant strains of cacao. With hardier cacao growing plentiful, it means farmers face less invasive weeds and cacao-prone diseases, such as Witches Broom.
The name “Mestiço” (pronounced Mæsteesso) means “mixed race”. It is a reference of both the Trinitarios that grow on the farm and of the mixed heritage of the chocolate maker: Japanese and Brazilian.
For this particular Forastero 72% chocolate, the cacao is, of course, of the Forastero variety. This variety of cacao is the most commonly grown cacao around the world, and is often associated with “bulk cocoa”. However, this cacao grown by Mestico is far from “bulk”, and instead demonstrates that Forastero can be high quality and fine-flavour cacao.
This 72% dark chocolate has notes of crème caramel and panna cotta, with a texture that’s silky smooth and creamy to give the fulfil the pudding-experience.
