A dark chocolate crafted in Cornwall using cocoa beans from the heart of the Peruvian Amazon.
The bar’s fudgy texture compliments its creamy flavour. The chocolate’s aroma is surprisingly delicate for such a dark bar, with a whisper of sweet floral notes. Green peas and freshly cut grass add a refreshing earthy note that dissolves into an effervescent lemon sherbet finish.
Mike from Chocolarder sources his beans from Asháninka farmer co-operatives in the rainforests of Peru, with the help of environmental charity Cool Earth. The Asháninka are an indigenous people, living mostly in the Peruvian Amazon. Harvesting and selling cacao provides them with sustainable income stream. This is crucial to combat the challenges they face from illegal logging, mining and deforestation.
This bar won Bronze at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2016.
