A rarity: this small, west African island is virtually unknown, but boasts a long and rich cacao tradition. The small farmers of the cooperative CECAQ 11 grow a unique island cacao shaped by its terroir, which has a very chocolatey and mildly fruity flavour. A single origin chocolate with a 75% cacao content, surprisingly mild for a dark chocolate, with a fruity-tropical aroma and an excellent melt.
Fragrance notes: fruity, dried apricots, baguettes Taste notes: very mild for a dark chocolate, red cherries, beautiful roast aroma, good melt, notes of baguettes, slightly astringent finish.
Josef Zotter started his confectionery business at age 26 in southern Austria. He won awards for his unusual creations and started to expand, but then had to decide whether to focus on confectionery or chocolate. Lucky for us, he chose chocolate, and over time, he has moved to make all Zotter chocolates bean-to-bar, organic and fairtrade. He is so committed to sustainability that he built his own steam powered generator fuelled by biomass and cocoa bean shells! See more
