Akesson’s – Brazil 75%
This smooth and fruity 75% dark chocolate has a roasted finish and is full of flavours reminiscent of the lush Brazilian rainforest. As it melts in your mouth, deep woody notes prepare the stage for a bright fruity kick, thanks to the local Brazilian pitanga fruit.
Bonnat – Madagascar 75%
In this typically smooth and creamy Bonnat, the fruity notes you would expect from a Madagascan bar, are mixed with fudge. Rather than a burst of fresh berries, we tasted caramelised, almost burnt raisins.
Taza Chocolate – Mexicano Cacao Puro
These disks are made of 70% single origin Dominican dark chocolate, bursting with bold, wine-like flavour, accompanied by Taza’s signature gritty texture. Taza tell us that this is the “purest expression” of their proudly unrefined chocolate.
Bare Bones – Dominican Republic, 40% White Bar
Made with natural, organic cocoa butter and stone ground with the finest Maldon Sea Salt and unrefined sugar. Taste notes of butterscotch, rum and raisin. The salt cuts through the sweetness of the white chocolate creating a beautiful balance.
