Discover chocolate’s terroir with Cocoa Amore’s set of eight Single Origin bars
Cocoa is much like wine or whiskey in that its flavour is intrinsically linked to where it is grown. Factors that alter its flavour include climate, soil and local geography.
Cocoa Amore’s Single Origin range allows you to discover these fascinating flavour nuances for yourself. The set includes eight 30g chocolate bars from around the world. Wrapped in gold foil, paper sleeve and beautifully presented in a sleek noir box, the pack also includes a map of the Cocoa Belt with tasting notes.
The term ‘Single Origin’ means the cocoa has been harvested from one specific region rather than being a blend of beans from different areas. This allows the delicate notes of each bean to shine through. Each bar featured in this set has a unique, distinctive flavour. It is less about the percentage of cocoa content and more about the growing location. It really is a fascinating voyage of discovery and makes a fantastic gift.
The Single Origin Set includes:
Mexico 66% Dark Chocolate: Smooth in texture, with rich, warm spice and citrusy notes.
Mapale, Colombia 80% Dark Chocolate: Pronounced bitterness with mild, green notes.
