People often ask me if I add essences to some of my dark chocolates because they taste so incredibly fruity. The Chulucanas has distinct notes of rasins and plums and the Sambirano of juicy summer fruits. But no! Astonishingly all these flavours come simply from these beautiful single estate beans. When beans are this good they all have their own distinct flavours and characters, like fine wines. And then you have the chocolates where I have paired different beans with different fruits, and refined berries into sublimely creamy white chocolate…. This box is a fruit extravaganza!
