Nom nom. Always nice to be able to taste the wonderful diversity of special cocoa. And Morin is a master of that. His large amount of different origins is famous. And he knows how to make something beautiful out of it every time. There is so much to discover, and everyone can easily occupy themselves with discovering favorite cocoa countries. And also compare cocoa from different areas within those countries. Nice nice.
In this case it is a cocoa from Bolivia.
Morin says about it: “The cocoa beans come from an association in the Cochabamba region. The cocoa is certified organic and FairWild and is harvested by two indigenous peoples of the Amazon, Yuracaré and Chimanes. This association was born to cope with re-evaluating the shrinking resources of these peoples caused by deforestation by the cocoa harvest.
The Yuracaré and Chimanes go to wild islands and islets and harvest ripe cocoa pods. They then transport the beans on horseback or canoe to the center where they are then fermented and dried. The rest of the year the trees are forgotten and nature takes back its rights. “
Taste note from the maker: This wild cocoa is harvested but not cultivated. The vegetal, slightly woody (oak-like) tasting chocolate has aromas of yellow fruit, gooseberry jam, plums followed by hints of honey and hot chocolate.
Ingredients: cocoa, cane sugar, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin.
Allergy note of the maker: may contain traces of milk, nuts and sesame.
