Minka has made a very approachable 100% dark chocolate bar. It’s earthy with a hint of asparagus and a buttery note that helps mellows the intensity of the 100% bar.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Jorge Martínez is an agricultural engineer with over 25 years of experience working in Ecuador’s cocoa industry. Inspired by the history of the famed Arriba Nacional beans from Ecuador in the 1800s, he set up Minka Chocolate in 2015 (“Minka” is a Quecha word meaning “teamwork”). Their mission is simple: to make Minka a recognised brand of high-quality chocolate worldwide, to celebrate their Ecuadorian origins, and to provide supreme tasting experiences for chocolate lovers around the world.
This bar is single-origin, single-farm and 100% dark chocolate. It’s made with fine aroma cocoa beans from La Mana Cotopaxi Ecuador. Minka’s beans are carefully selected at Hacienda Guantupi and used in the bars.
