A milk chocolate, but with a high percentage of cocoa. This way you can taste more of what chocolate is actually about … the cocoa.
Again, not just any kind of milk was used, but sweet buttermilk. With a lower fat content and a different taste. Intended as a beautiful addition to the flavor notes of the cocoa from Brazil, and with a silky smooth structure.
Foodensity describes the taste as “The tasting reveals an initial delicate taste of honey with wild flowers, sprinkled with spicy hints, which then warmly spreads to the flavor notes of coffee berries”
Taste note from the makers: “Every bite brings new flavors to discover: fruit, caramel, dairy, syrup, orange peel, tobacco and coffee can be discovered.”
In any case, a nice chocolate for milk chocolate fans who want something completely different, more cocoa and different milk powder than usual in the supermarket. Fortunately, as it is almost always the case with craft chocolate from the small makers, no mass product is made but careful consideration is made for the ingredients. At Heinde & Verre, it is not only about the single origin cocoa of specific origin, but also about the milk and sugar, in this case beet sugar.
Also interesting to know is how to roast this cocoa. Heinde & Verre makes three separate batches of the cocoa, all three of which are roasted differently. Then the cocoa is combined and ground, with the addition of the sugar and milk. Combining the cocoa in one bar with three different ‘roasts’ is certainly not standard, so we think it’s nice to know.
Origin of the cocoa: “The beans for this bar come from the COOPOAM farmers’ cooperative in Brazil. The farmers grow and harvest their cocoa beans in the Pará region along the Xingu River. COOPOAM is part of the CEPOTX association which is focuses on sustainable agriculture and reforestation in the Amazon region. Through this collaboration, all cocoa is fair trade and organic certified. ”
