Tosier Chocolate – Colombia, Tumaco Estate 70% Dark
Without a foodie background, just a love for dark chocolate and all its health benefits, Tosier chocolate maker is the denouement of Deanna Tilston setting out on a personal journey to learn about and craft her own chocolate. What started out as a self-nourishing endeavour has ultimately ended up as becoming an award-winning chocolate maker. It seems that every element of Tosier chocolate elicits reverence for cacao and chocolate, from sourcing its raw beans to the reason behind the name: ‘Tosier’ dates back to the 18th century with a man named Thomas Tosier having the privilege of being George I’s personal chocolate maker.
Tosier crafts its chocolate in eight kilogram micro batches, which means that a limited number of bars are produced from each harvest; however, producing batches on this sort of scale means Deanna is able to keep a very close eye on every step of the chocolate-making process. It also means that as limited quantities of cacao from each harvest is purchased, no single batch of chocolate Deanna makes will ever be the same. That is the beauty of craft chocolate.
Tosier sources its Colombian cacao via Uncommon Cacao. Uncommon Cacao, originally part of Taza, are a key partner for many emerging craft chocolate makers and they pride themselves on ensuring a high quality and transparent trade, as well as maintaining significant market access for smallholder cacao farmers. Working with Uncommon Cacao means Deanna is able to see the biodiversity of the cacao, that is, what grows amongst the cacao, be it bananas, avocados, citrus fruits.
This dark chocolate is classically rich, with nutty, floral and fruity notes. It has a smooth melt paired with a clean finish.
