A beautiful set in which you get acquainted with original chocolate in one go – in this case with milk chocolate. And the nice thing (in addition to the high quality cocoa from various origins) … Casa Cacao not only uses cow’s milk, but also sheep’s milk and goat’s milk. There is much to discover, the origin of the cocoa but also the influence of the different types of milk!
This collection of 6 chocolates (480 grams) is made by Casa Cacao. And that is again the bean to bar chocolate factory belonging to El Celler de Can Roca – world famous (3 star) restaurant. Jordi Roca was already responsible for the desserts there, and thus (of course) developed a love for chocolate. Of course, that love also leads to the source, the cocoa, and the incredible flavor diversity that can be found in the cocoa. He traveled to the cocoa plantations, especially in South America, to taste the cocoa, to experience the cocoa plantations. The people who take care of that beautiful tree, and harvest and ferment and dry the fruit. That is how a book was born (also called Casa Cacao) but eventually also the plan to buy the cocoa and make chocolate (bean to bar, as it is called) – the way as all those beautiful craft chocolate makers on our site say to follow. Then of course start experimenting with roasting, grinding, which cocoa gets which profile. What works, what doesn’t. Because this is a restaurant from the world top, and people with a considerable ‘drive’ tackle it right away. The chocolate factory is accessible. A kind of chocolate cafe, where you can taste everything, but also see how the chocolate is made. And then again, on the higher floors, it is a hotel. We haven’t been there yet, but it sounds like a kind of chocolate heaven to us. Getting out of bed, a fresh chocolate croissant with a good coffee. And then linger quietly in the chocolate café with a snack, watch behind glass how the cocoa turns into chocolate.
A set with 6 origins of milk chocolate, in a beautiful gift box
We also have a number of loose chocolates available, but the original set is extra fun. You get a nice package (modeled after of course Casa Cacao, the building where the chocolate is made) with six chocolates (480 grams) of course made from different origins. This way you can taste the differences very nicely. And although we still prefer dark chocolate ourselves, it is nice to see that Casa Cacao also works with different types of milk – from cow to goat to sheep’s milk.
It is nice to do it now and then when you order from us – order different cocoa origins from the same make – especially for a tasting, at home or with others. And now also a nice set for lovers of milk chocolate (lovers of pure order the pure origin set of course). Here you get six chocolates together and you do not have to figure out anything yourself.
In this set:
Arhuaco Community of Catanzama, Sierra Nevada, Colombia, 52% with Cow’s Milk
DO. Los Bejucos, Dominican Republic, 50% with Sheep’s Milk
Awajun communities of Utt, Temashnum, Sukutin and Nuevo Salem, Amazonas Region, Peru, 48% with Cow’s milk
Hacienda Victoria, Ecuador, 55% with Goat’s Milk
Hacienda Cacao Caribe, Las Trincheras, Venezuela, 60% with with cow’s milk
Coop. Norandino, Piura, Peru, 45% with with cow’s milk
Piece by piece milk chocolate, made with cocoa, cocoa butter and sugar and milk. The cocoa percentage varies slightly – from 45% to 60% – all just a bit less sweet than what is in the supermarket, but above all it is incomparable, due to the origin of the top quality cocoa, the different types of milk and of course the craftsmanship. from the makers.
As chocolate sellers we of course already have a nice (we think ourselves, but fortunately our customers too) range of chocolates, we can say quite extensive. You can also make very nice selections from that. Which we select for you in a surprise package. Or you just find out yourself. Then it can actually be just as delicious – we only sell chocolates that we support. But then of course it is not chocolate made by chocolate makers who belong to a restaurant that has been awarded three Michelin stars. Is it better then? Of course not necessarily, but we think it is very nice when people like Jordi Roca are so involved with chocolate & cocoa. For those who want to know a little more about him, on Netflix you can see a nice introduction in an episode of ‘Chef’s Table’. It is a nice set anyway, and we can also say that you will be able to enjoy it a lot. Would you prefer us to find out something specifically for you? No problem, always send an email. At almost ten euros per chocolate this also costs quite a bit, but if you know what you will pay approximately for a dinner in El Celler then it is not too bad. And with this set you also have a very nice gift, chocolates with a story, chocolate
