This is a 2.5kg bag of 100%, dark, sugar-free chocolate couverture.
These 100% couverture pistoles made from fine superior cocoa have a mouth-watering, citrus edge and a roasted, fruity flavour, a little like a fruity filter coffee. Although containing no sugar at all, made with nothing but cacao, this is quite easy to eat for such an intense chocolate, the absence of sugar revealing all of the richness of the cocoa. This is perfect for a variety of uses in the kitchen.
This chocolate doesn’t just taste good, it does good. Madagascan chocolate maker Menakao proudly crafts its chocolate on the island, using only local ingredients. Unfortunately, this is rare even for craft chocolate – it’s estimated that less than 5% of the world’s chocolate is produced in the same country the cocoa is grown. By making the chocolate in Madagascar in addition to growing the cacao on the island, Menakao generate about 4-5 times the benefit of Fair Trade for the local Madagascan economy.
