    TASTING NOTES

    ABOUT THE MAKER

    The Eurasian Coot, or “Taucherli” to the locals in Zürich, is what this chocolate maker is both named and illustrated after. Kay Keusen, the man behind Taucherli chocolate, produces both couverture and bean to bar chocolate. What with Switzerland’s illustrious history and reputation of chocolate making, Kay’s bean to bar range was an ambition to take “customers on a journey” and to reinvent what it means to be a Swiss chocolatier. It became apparent to Kay that the majority of “Swiss” milk chocolate truly wasn’t Swiss at all, as it was instead being produced abroad.

    THE BEANS

    The beans in this bar are sourced from the Swiss-Colombian family plantation, Hacienda Betulia, located in the north-western province of Antioquia, Colombia. The trees grow under an agroforestry scheme on 15 hectares alongside 30 hectares of protected native forest. The Hacienda grows a selection of its own Criollo trees – known locally as “Betulia” – to propagate a collection of light-coloured beans with rare and complex flavours. Each type of Criollo the farm grows has its own fermentation protocol, defined to ensure that the flavours of each type are developed to reach its fullest potential. This particular Criollo is known as”B6″.
