For this single origin dark chocolate bar, Phil at Land has used Nicaraguan cacao. It was through his travels in Central America that Phil first discovered cocoa. The trip proved to be a turning point for Phil as he now single-handedly crafts bean to bar chocolate from his Bethnal Green workshop. Land’s first chocolate collection is really an homage to the Latin American cocoa that first inspired his bean to bar chocolate journey, with Nicaragua taking centre stage.
Despite having just 2% difference in cocoa percentage from Land’s Nicaliso dark chocolate bar, this Nicaraguan bar proves much more intense. A sharp astringency with zingy lemon sherbert and tart berries dancing on the tongue – a bar to wake up the tastebuds!
