These single origin Dark chocolate baking chips are like a gustatory thunder! Burnt hard caramel, licorice or stone fruits. The finish is rich and slightly spicy. Your cakes will thank you and your company will ask for more.
FRÉDÉRIC'S NOTES ”Mexican cocoa is powerful; it will give a heavy chocolate taste to your cakes. When cooked and mixed with other ingredients, chocolate can lose its aroma; yet this one maintains a strong presence. When possible, I combine it with a Dark Milk chocolate. This works especially well in Chocolate Chips Cookies.”
Smell the chocolate. Break a small piece and let it melt under your tongue. Give time to the chocolate to release its aromas. Enjoy. Repeat.
Our single origin chocolate is sourced from one country, one region, and even one single Cocoa farm.
Like fine wine or cheese, each cocoa plant has its roots; an origin that gives it its typicality. A taste that connoisseurs -- you, soon! -- work to identify with pleasure.
Have you ever heard of terroir?
When Comercializadora Semillas Aldama opened the plantation in 2006, his mission was to preserve the production and identity of the cocoa native to Tabasco, a southeastern state in Mexico. Fifteen years later, his company provides a network of local producers with everything they need to excel -- from the best plants to the most advanced technical support -- while Aldama’s center is dedicated to drying and fermentation. A strong future for a strong product!
