Also a 100% chocolate can not be missed in the assortment of the fine, beautiful little chocolate factory of Dormouse in Manchester.
They chose cocoa beans from Guatemala, more precisely from Alta Verapaz.
If we understand it well again from Uncommon Cacao – a beautiful company that opts for a very transparent working method. You can read exactly what they pay for the cocoa, what the cocoa farmer gets, how much they take, etcetera. Very beautiful, and exactly what the cocoa world needs – radical transparency instead of shadowy constructions.

Then also about the taste, the makers say themselves: Intense but soft, with notes of oak walnut and red wine.
Ingredients: cocoa beans.
More than that is not there. Allergy note of the maker: made in a kitchen where almonds and hazelnuts are also used. Suitable for vegetarians. They also add minimum cocoa content 100%. Hihi, yes we understand that it is good to be clear, and the packaging according to the rules.
Anyway. A 100% bar that fits nicely, the bar itself is a bit on the heavy side for ourselves (we opt for those fine philippines or guatemala pure – those were the first bars we tasted from Dormouse and got it … hey , this is really special) but the 100% pure lovers have a nice addition to the collection – we think so.
