    Craft chocolate provides an amazing way to try something that not only tastes better, but it’s also better for you and better for the planet.  And with this pack, along with a virtual and video tastings, you’ll be able to experience this.  We’ve pulled together nine unique chocolates that will show you how different beans, fermentation, grinding and crafting styles impact flavour, intensity, mouthfeel, texture and taste.

    Craft chocolate also provides you with a unique way to understand more about taste, flavour and mouthfeel. It literally helps you “refine your palate”. In the tutored tasting we’ll discuss different ways to understand the difference between taste and flavour (hint: flavour comes from your sense of smell, taste from a series of receptors on your tongue and in your mouth).  And we’ll also show you how to appreciate how flavour and taste develop like a “wave” with very different sensations during the initial, peak and then lingering stages of the chocolate melting.  To assist you here we’ve included a “flavour wave” developed with Professor Barry Smith (Director of the Institute of Philosophy at University of London and Co-director of  the Centre for the Study of the Senses), James Hoffmann (Founder of Square Mile and World Coffee Barista Champion) and Rebecca Palmer (Wine Buyer at Corney & Barrow)

    During the virtual tastings we’ll also offer advise on how to read a chocolate label and what to look out for (hint: if there are ingredients that your grandmother wouldn’t recognise, be careful!  great chocolate is all about the beans … so just look for cocoa beans, sugar and (maybe) milk).  We will also explain the difference between single origin and single estate / single co-operation — and why this is important.

    ONCE YOU’VE PURCHASED A BOX WE WILL SEND YOU A LINK TO OUR NEXT ZOOM TASTING

    NOTE: this box contains 9 different chocolates; comprising seven full size bars and some taster squares.  It is designed for a family of 4+ people (up to 6-8).

      Excellent value. The contents of the box gave us plenty to taste, and we were treated to an hour and a half of Spencer talking us through the tasting experience. This was a present from our daughter, and much better than any Easter egg would hav been. I'd definitely recommend it.
