For a milk chocolate this has rich fruity flavours of cherry, along with hints of caramel and licorice. The beans have been purchased directly from the farmer, Dorothy and then treated with care to bring out their unique flavour.
Duffy Sheardown has an obsessive attention to detail that results in award winning chocolate that tastes great. However, he is also committed to doing the right thing for the chocolate industry, and is of the cocoa producers behind Direct Cocoa with Martin Christy of SeventyPercent.com.
Direct cocoa is a model of cocoa sales which aims to improve on Fair Trade by putting a focus on the quality of the bean, and being prepared to pay a premium for that. With no middlemen, the extra pay for the beans goes direct to the farmer, and their community.
