Description

An exceptionally smooth and flavoursome milk chocolate with sea salt. Higher than average cocoa content of 42% provides a wonderfully rich chocolate experience with butter fudge flavours. Hints of summer fruit and spice. This chocolate bar is organic and fairly traded.

Ecuador’s Arriba cacao is known for its superior fine flavour, but its existence is being threatened by the propagation and promotion of the industrial cacao hybrid CCN51. The conservation effort by Original Beans, in alliance with small producer co-operatives in the Esmeraldas region, is conserving the authentic Arriba cacao and protecting the rainforests in which this original bean thrives.

By purchasing this bar you are helping to protect the original cacao beans and rainforests they thrive in for future generations. Original Beans state that with each purchase a tree is planted to sustain family and forest.

5Absolute perfection!

This chocolate was listed in an article among the chocolates that you should definitely taste. It also won the Great Taste Award, so I was bought it on these recommendations despite not being a big fan of milk chocolates. But, yeah, it definitely tastes good, really good. You can taste the fudge and the pure cacao. Also the sea salt makes sure every thing is in balance. In short, it was really surprising. It's a brilliant gift as well, as many people aren't into dark chocolates and this one will blow anybody away because it's miles apart from the usual milk chocolates you can buy in stores. Will buy again!

5Absolute perfection!

Another great high cocoa content milk chocolate, this one from Original Beans. This one has more notes of caramel than the Chocolat Madagascar bar. The Chocolate Trading Company's description of their conservation efforts alone would normally induce me to try a bar. The fact that it's also Organic chocolate, made the decision to buy online easy.
