Hogarth is an bean to bar chocolate maker based in New Zealand. Before turning to chocolate, Karl Hogarth worked on ships for over 20 years. Karl chose to decorate both the packaging and the chocolate’s mould with waves, to reflect his nautical background.
This Limited Release bar from Hogarth is a very special chocolate. For this limited release bar, Karl uses organic Trinitario cacao from smallholder farmers in Alto Beni, Bolivia. To this Karl adds milk and a little sugar.
Bolivia is one of the world’s largest exporters of organic cacao, and a major player in wild cocoa. The wild cocoa commonly associated with the province of Beniano is commonly smaller than that found elsewhere. It hasn’t been intensely farmed, and is instead foraged from wild trees by locals before it is brought to fermentation points where it is fermented and dried prior to export. The cocoa from this province is prized for its natural honey notes, and sweetness.
At 58% cacao, this is the latest dark milk bar to join our library. In short, this makes it a great bridge bar for those milk chocolate lovers who are looking to branch into the wonderful world of dark chocolate. In fact, at 58% cacao this has less sugar than many of the dark chocolate bars that are available. We love the intense caramel profile of this bar, and its gently fudgey texture.
