Chocolarder – Virunga 75%

$11.50

A very approached and stackable bar! With an aroma of alcohol soaked dried prunes and plums, this bar is reminiscent of a black forest cake! Filled with flavour notes of decadent chocolate cake, dried prunes, baked plums, and blood cherry liqueur, which gives it an almost boozy finish!

African chocolate has a dark history. That is why projects in the Virunga National Park, the oldest in Africa, are so important. In 2016 the Femmes de Virunga project was launched, the first ever female-led cacao cooperative in the world, and in one of the most dangerous places to be a woman. The project educates and supports these women, enabling them to provide for and support their families. Since the project started in 2016 more than a quarter of a million cacao trees have been planted and there are over 1500 women farmers in the cooperative. Deep chocolate and light brightness of dried red fruits with a peaty whisky end note.

Ingredients: Cocoa beans and unrefined raw sugar. 70g

The Virunga National Park is the largest in Africa, and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. In recent years after two wars and millions of people being displaced from their homes, many have settled at the edge of the park in the search for safety. This has in turn led to deforestation. There are various projects supporting the local people to work in harmony with the rainforest, with one being growing cocoa beans.
