Our Intense 70% Ecuadorian chocolate is deep, velvety and forceful with notes of dark fruit, ripened plum and concentrated bitter-sweet smokiness from the 'ancestral home' of the cocoa bean.
This perfectly balanced chocolate has the subtle floral, blackcurrant and spice profile of the recently rediscovered Cacao Nacional, "Black Gold" the chocolate of legend.
Ecuadorian Arriba cocoa beans are considered the world's best, with a wonderful complex aroma and a variation in the taste and size according to the area in which the beans are grown.
