This is a 2.5kg bag of 80% dark chocolate couverture.
These deliciously dark 80% couverture pistoles are a little wild! A sensationally fruity chocolate that packs a little more punch than Menakao’s 70%, for those who like their flavours just a little more intense. The high citrus notes here sharpen the natural fruitiness which makes Madagascan cocoa beans so famously adored. 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.
