These single origin Dark Milk chocolate baking chips are sweet and smooth, with notes of white flowers and jasmine. The Tahitian vanilla delicately balances the strength of cocoa. The finish is rich and sweet.
Your cakes will thank you and your company will ask for more.
FRÉDÉRIC'S NOTES ”The idea of adding some Tahitian vanilla arose because it pairs well with the aroma of the Belizean cocoa. The original concept was to create a Dark Milk chocolate without too much added sugar. The vanilla is used as natural sugar but mostly to fool your palate, giving the impression of sweetness. The cocoa percentage is still 47%.”
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?
Xibun River Estate, in the middle of which stands a Mayan archaeological site, is located in the center of Belize. The land is fertile, watered, and -- although not certified -- does not receive any herbicides or pesticides. The cocoa trees arrived from Trinidad, Costa Rica and Ecuador in the 1970s and were left to decay at the beginning of the 21st century. But since 2014, Valrhona has helped to rehabilitate the plantation and restore its Belizean richness.
