This strong dark chocolate reveals the true depth of Sao Tome cocoa beans.
Amaro’s thin mould gives the chocolate a quick melt. A gentle buttery note and smooth melt leads to vegetal tones and a hint of menthol spice. The flavour builds in strength as earthy intensity dominates. Wood and soil mix with bright astringency on the finish.
The powerful profile of this dark chocolate would pair perfectly with an Italian espresso. With no added sugar, the full and undiluted flavour of the beans is revealed.
Sao Tome is one half of the African island nation of Sao Tome and Principe. Cacao was originally brought to Sao Tome from Bahia, Brazil by the Portuguese in the 17th century.
