With 70% cocoa with origin / origin Papua New Guinea.
Pure chocolate made by the family business A. Morin in the French Provence. Subtitle: “Sido”.
“A lot of chocolate flavor – cocoa powder, chocolate cake – the cocoa also has vegetable aromas and notes of caramel and fruit.” Morin says so himself on the packaging.
Furthermore, they also write: “The aforementioned aromas stem from our own experience of the chocolate and do not have to dominate your own taste experience” – in other words: discover for yourself what this bar brings to you.
Georg Bernardini calls the chocolate “Aromatic, subtly fruity and slightly spicy, with a taste of coffee, clove, nutmeg – and no smoky taste” – the latter he will call because cocoa from this region is often dried on fire and there is a strong smoky taste can get.
And now we really have to refer to the beautiful tip of Reen.be (go if you’re in Belgium especially for a lot of choco-treats!) who recognizes hops in the taste and would like to recommend the chocolate with extra hoppy beer to try. Your Chocoladeverkopers do like a special beer now and then so we will definitely test that combination. Our findings, and taste notes, you keep our credit.
