Two new single estate bars from Willies Cacao
Not one, but two exciting new bars from Britain’s first
bean-to-bar chocolatier Willie
Harcourt-Cooze, who’s chocolate rose to fame after Willie’s Cacao was
featured in a 2008 Channel 4 television series ‘Willie’s Wonky Chocolate
Chocolate with sea salt bar is a single-estate milk chocolate bar combined
with sea salt flakes, created from Willie’s own cocoa estate – the Hacienda San
Augustine – in Venezuela.
With a distinctive flavour profile that provides notes of
malt and caramel; the sweetness of the milk chocolate is balanced by the
inclusion of sea salt.
Made using Trinitario cocoa (cocoa content 44%), this new
indulgent bar from Willie’s Cacao is soya lecithin, wheat, gluten and alcohol free
and is suitable for vegetarians.
By contrast, Willie’s
Cacao Colombian Gold Los Llanos is a dark, powerful, full flavoured dark
chocolate bar with a high cocoa content of 88%.
Bursting with notes of cherries and plums so characteristic
of the Trinitario cocoa beans used to produce this bar, this bitter dark bar
has a medium roast flavour profile.
The single-estate Trinitario cocoa is provided, on this
occasion, from Los Llanos (hence the bars name) in Colombia.
The Colombian Gold bar is alcohol, dairy, soya lecithin,
wheat & gluten free, making it a welcome additional choice to those with
special dietary needs and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians alike.
You can read more about how Willie’s chocolate adventure
started, back in 1993, whilst he and his wife were on honeymoon in Venezuela.
Whilst there, they heard that ‘El Tesoro’ – a 1000 acre cacao farm was for
sale. The rest as they say is history. Click
