This dark chocolate ganache, infused with cognac, has a balanced and intense flavour with notes of roasted coffee on the finish. This inspired Zotter’s next move, which was to coat the ganache in a fine layer of coffee couverture, followed by another layer of dark chocolate.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Josef Zotter is one of the long-established heroes of the craft chocolate movement. He has been producing chocolate since 1992, became famous for his wacky flavour combinations (scarlet runner bean and coriander pastry, anyone?), and was one of the earliest to produce 100% Organic and Fairtrade products. He has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of his growers around the world, engaging in numerous initiatives in Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia. He also runs an outstanding chocolate factory visitor experience – The Zotter Experience – that is a must-see for any chocolate-loving visitors to Austria.
ABOUT THE BAR
Zotter’s handscooped range is where it all began. The chocolate that surrounds these filled bars has been specifically chosen to complement the unique flavour combinations inside, giving a perfect tasting experience of great texture and fine flavour.
