TASTING NOTES

This bar won Gold in the Academy of Chocolate 2018. The flavour profile of this 2017 harvest is a bold and bountiful one. Rich caramel and honey trickle through bright, tangy, tropical fruits, with pineapples in the foreground. Deanna personally likes to pair this fruity chocolate with a classic, creamy Stilton.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Deanna Tilston launched Tosier in Suffolk in 2017 as part of her personal journey to learn about and craft great-quality chocolate. This endeavour has turned into an award-winning chocolate maker dedicated to giving farmers a fair price as part of a transparent and traceable supply chain. Tosier’s chocolate is made in twenty-four-kilogram batches, allowing Deanna to keep a close eye on each step of the chocolate-making process. It also means that no batch of chocolate Deanna makes will ever be quite the same; each batch and harvest that Tosier receives has different characteristics. We think this variety is part of the beauty of craft chocolate.

THE BEANS

The beans in this bar have been sourced from Maya Mountain Cacao, one of the earliest centralized fermentery social enterprises. Established in 2010 in the early stages of the Craft Chocolate boom, Maya Mountain works with over 350 cocoa-growing families in southern Belize to process their beans centrally, which allows them to export high-quality cocoa beans to premium-paying craft chocolate makers.

  1. Vanessa C.

    Beautiful flavour! This is a new favourite of mine. If you like Michel Cluizel’s Jardin bar, you should try this. The Belize cocoa beans really come through nicely in this bar, which is lovely and smooth, but wonderfully flavourful in a understated way. Prefer this Tosier bar to the good (but not as good!) Chocolate Tree bar using the same beans.

  2. Steven F.

    Perfectly fine chocolate. Nice snap but not exciting

  3. Lucinda W.

    I’m writing this having just taken my first three bites of the chocolate. And oh gosh… it’s wonderful. Dark but not bitter. It has bite, yet it’s beautifully silky on the tongue. Gently sweet, like a serious caramel. And incredibly addictive. Do try this. Especially if you like chocolate with a higher cocoa content. You’ll be so happy for it!
