A beautiful set in which you get acquainted with origin chocolate in one go – in this case with milk chocolates & dark chocolates. And the nice thing (besides the high quality cocoa from various origins)… Casa Cacao not only uses cow’s milk, but also sheep’s milk and goat milk. There is so 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 stars) restaurant. Jordi Roca was already responsible for the desserts there, and so (of course) developed a love for chocolate. Of course, that love also leads to the source, the cocoa, and the incredible taste diversity that can be found in the cocoa. He traveled to the cocoa plantations, especially in South America, to taste the cocoa, experience the cocoa plantations. The people who take care of that beautiful tree, and harvest the fruit and ferment and dry it. This is how a book (also called Casa Cacao) was born, but ultimately also the plan to buy cocoa ourselves and make chocolate (bean to bar, as it is called) – the way like all those beautiful craft chocolate makers on our site follow. Then, of course, experiment with roasting, grinding, which cocoa gets which profile. What works, what doesn’t. Because this is a restaurant from the world’s top, and by people with a big ‘drive’, it is also handled well. The chocolate factory is accessible. A kind of chocolate café, where you can taste everything, but also see how the chocolate is made. And then it is also, on the higher floors, a hotel. We haven’t been there yet, but it does sound like a kind of chocolate heaven to us. Getting out of bed, a fresh chocolate croissant with a good coffee. And then linger in the chocolate café with something delicious, watching behind glass how the cocoa turns into chocolate.
A set with 3 origin milk chocolates and 3 dark chocolates, in a beautiful gift box
We also have a number of individual chocolates available, but the origin set is extra nice. You get a beautiful package (modelled after Casa Cacao, of course, the building where the chocolate is made) with six chocolates (480 grams) of course made of different origins. This way you can really taste the differences. It is nice to see that Casa Cacao also works with different types of milk – from cow to goat to sheep milk and in the pure variants you can taste the different origins.
It’s nice to do now and then if 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 & dark (prefer only pure? We also have the pure origin set. Here you get six chocolates together and you don’t have to figure anything out yourself.
In this kit:
Norandino Peru 45% (Cow’s Milk)
Los Bejucos, Dominican Republic 50% (Sheep’s Milk)
Hacienda Victoria, Ecuador 55% (Goat Milk)
Norandino, Peru, 66% (Pure)
Hacienda Victoria, Ecuador 68% (Pure)
Los Bejucos, Dominican Republic 84% (Pure)
Very nice that of each type of cocoa (from each specific cooperative from a specific country) there is a milk chocolate and dark chocolate in this package. This way you can not only compare the individual origins and types of milk, but also taste the dark chocolate versus the milk chocolate. Endless possibilities for a few evenings extensive, attentive and enjoyable tasting!
As chocolate sellers we already have a nice (we think so, but fortunately our customers also) 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 for yourself. Then it can actually be just as tasty – we only sell chocolates that we stand behind. But then of course it is not chocolate made by chocolate makers belonging to a restaurant awarded with three Michelin stars. Is it better then? Of course not necessarily, but we think it’s very nice when people like Jordi Roca are so involved with chocolate & cocoa. For those who want to know a little more about him, a nice introduction can be seen on Netflix in an episode of ‘Chef’s Table’. It is a nice set anyway, and we can also say that you will have a lot of fun tasting it. Would you rather that we find something specifically for you? No problem, always send an email. With ten euros per chocolate, this also costs quite a bit, but if you know what you pay approximately for a dinner in El Celler, it is not too bad. And with this set you also have a very nice gift, chocolates with a story, chocolates that (hopefully) make you curious, and can be a nice first immersion in the fascinating world of cac
