TASTING NOTES

Possessing an intense cocoa flavour, this bar has a low acidity earthy taste thanks to its long conche yields. With no added sugar, this is perfect for those who love powerful flavours and pure chocolate.

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

The beans in this bar are Heirloom Designated Arriba Nacional beans, grown on Samuel Von Rutte’s Hacienda Limon estate in the Guayas Basin, Ecuador. Unusually, Samuel pre-dries the cocoa seeds before fermentation, which reduces both acidity and bitterness and contributes to their rich and nutty caramel profile.

  1. Emilie V.

    Mixed thoughts about this bar. I didn’t like it at first but having tried it a few times it’s definitely growing on me. It’s creamy and I really enjoyed the texture and mouthfeel! It’s very mellow initially which is lovely.

    I’m usually a massive fan of earthy flavours but I find something like a mushroomy flavour in the middle of this that I don’t always enjoy.

    This bar tastes a little yeasty; to my palate the aftertaste is like a very dry sake, which is unexpected and, I think, quite pleasant. Theres also a little bitterness and some petrichor in the aftertaste.

    I enjoy the absence of any strong fruity flavours.

    This bar is a mixture of mineral flavours and a bit like a dry forest floor that has just been flooded by torrential rain.

    Love this. Butter, with a strong character.

  3. Tzvi S.

    I recently received this bar again and decided to give it another shot. Whether my taste buds improved, tastes evolved, or something else entirely, this bar is definitely recommended in my opinion.
    I don’t know if this will replace my previous review. (Sorry Pump Street)

  4. Tzvi S.

    I did not like this bar at all. It’s just bland with nothing to focus on.

  5. Julie M.

    Nice and creamy, easy and very enjoyable to eat. An approachable 100% chocolate.
