2 BAR SLEEVE | SOUTH AMERICA | Dark & Dark Milk Chocolate
Take a tasting trip to South America. Our pure origin chocolate couvertures will take you there in a bite.
BRAZIL | 43% | DARK-MILK CHOCOLATE | Sensations of infused black tea… scent of driftwood warming in the sun… It is Brazilian cocoa, its bitterness, tartness and tannic power, calmed by the bewitching force of milk.
ECUADOR | 72% | DARK CHOCOLATE | Think of flowers (jasmine? rose? up to you) and forest, undergrowth, cut grass, hazelnut… Fruits (banana, coconut…) make your eyes widen. This is lush Ecuador, the cradle of cocoa.
