Pump Street – Jamaica 75% Dark
This dark chocolate bar from Pump Street Baker is a buttery bar with a smooth, indulgent melt. Rum and raisin is mixed with a touch of caramel and brown sugar giving a rich and decadent aroma. We noted hints of smoked honey on the finish.
But don’t just take our word for it! Have a look below at what the attendees at one of our recent Virtual Tastings had to say about it.
ABOUT THE MAKER
After a long and successful career at IBM, international jet-setter Chris Brennan briefly retired before deciding to pioneer the making of sourdough and other breads in his idyllic countryside bakery in Orford, Suffolk. About a decade later, he and his daughter Joanna decided to delve into crafting award-winning chocolate in their eponymous bakery situated on Pump Street, and have won numerous awards for both their chocolates and their innovative packaging.
The beans in this bar come from the famous Bachelor’s Hall estate in Jamaica. This estate, once one of the top producing coconut farms in Jamaica, lies among the abundant rivers at the base of the Blue Mountains. Desmond Jadusingh’s grandfather used to own the plantation, but it fell out of the family until Desmond bought it back in 2002. He then boldly took the step of taking control of his own fermentation and drying, which allowed him to increase the quality of his beans and reach the rapidly expanding fine flavour chocolate market.

(Received as part of a virtual tasting kit) Excellent temper. Melt: slow, buttery, smooth Flavour: light brown soft sugar. Pleasant but mono-dimensional.

It's a nice chocolate, but we tasted it as part of CR's tasting experience and the other chocolates were considerably more interesting.

Reviewing the 2018 Saint Thomas crop from Bachelor's Hall Estate. Classic dark brown colour. Tangerines on the nose. Very sturdy, slow to melt. Start somewhere between malt and marshmallow, and dives towards honey. Walnuts at the finish. Complex and delicious.
