Dark milk chocolate made with Criollo cocoa beans from Peru, grown by the Awajun population. With coffee from hand-picked Arabica ground coffee beans from Colombia.
30% cocoa is on the package, but then it is only about the cocoa beans, not the added cocoa butter. Normally chocolate makers include cocoa butter in the percentage. The way Chocolate Makers do it is actually so honest. In the supermarket this would probably be called a 58% milk chocolate
