A chocolate that you can call unique, the first in the world made from cocoa from the Galapagos Islands. The cocoa comes from two small cocoa plantations on the spot.
Whether it is worth the price? Everyone can determine that for themselves. For the chocolates from the ‘origin’ series of To’ak counting there are plenty of enthusiasts who are happy to pay the 200+ euros for it. Then this is not so bad. On the other hand, we know enough chocolates that are also very special and stay under ten euros. Our entire web store is full of it. About 400 pieces of special chocolates.
This specimen is extra special because it is the first in the world made from cocoa from the Galapagos Islands. And if you don’t know it, the islands are politically under Ecuador. And the cocoa is made entirely into chocolate in Ecuador. A nice principle. We are happy to sell all kinds of chocolates made in the countries where cocoa grows. Look around the webshop for all sorts of great examples.
Taste note from the makers:
Nose: Cinnabon, raisins, whole wheat.
Palate: Cookies & fudge, nutmeg, brown fruits.
Finish: Caramel, cinnamon, sweet bread.
Ingredients: cocoa 75%, cane sugar.
Pairing suggestions from the maker: “Kelt Cognac is particularly suitable. Zacapa 23 Rum always works. Añejo Tequila, especially Casamigos and Don Julio. Irish whiskey, Scech from Speyside, a number of high-quality Bourbons and Japanese whiskey can all pair well. For cheese, anything but goat cheese – goats are invasive in the Galapagos. ”
Good to know: new packaging in collaboration with DarkShark Chocolates, which take care of the cocoa. Equally beautiful, but with images of hammerhead sharks instead of a turtle. In short, let yourself be surprised.
