Dark chocolate from organic cocoa from Honduras.
Pleasant and very long lasting taste! Was the first thing that struck us when tasting it. And the taste really goes in a number of directions too.
The maker describes the taste as: raisins, banana, nutty.
However, we do get through other taste notes, which bounce back and forth in a pleasant way. From slightly smoked notes to slightly fruity, figs, cream, in the distance a hint of something of pine. It is difficult to get exactly the taste tones in a short tasting session – but we were certainly amazed by this chocolate. And if we’re honest, we don’t always have that with Georgia Ramon – from what this German chocolate maker makes, we really choose the bars we like best. And this one might be right at the top. Of course – the cocoa varies per year – so if you taste this chocolate in 2022, it might be slightly different. But that it can be a good choice to taste something very tasty, there is certainly a chance.
If a chocolate ‘gives’ so much during tasting and evokes a delicious taste sensation minutes later, then the chocolate maker has done something (much) good, and of course the people who grew the cocoa too!
The cocoa is Trinitario cocoa, certified organic, from the Apach Cooperatië.
“The cocoa beans for this chocolate come from the cooperative APACH (Asociación de Productores Agroforestales de la Cuenca Rio Choloma), of which 110 farmers are members. They live and work in the area around the town and municipality of Choloma, which includes 41 villages The cocoa is grown in the forests – agroforestry – at the foot of the Sierra del Mérendon, on the border of Honduras and Guatemala.”
