LetterPress - 70% Ecuador
Good Food Awards 2016
This bar has a strong mocha aroma. The astringency is very mild with minimal bitterness. The flavors have a nice length, linger on the tongue, and have subtle nuttiness and dry plum flavor.
The cocoa beans used in this bar come from Daniel O'Doherty, considered one of the top fermentation experts in the world. Nutty and floral taste.
About the Producer:
David and Corey Menkes love good chocolate, and similar to coffee or wine, they want to share the subtle differences of each chocolate region. To that end, they source and roast cacao beans that are truly exceptional – not only in flavor, but featuring a truly ethical, sustainable supply chain. They travel to meet farmers in person at the source – Guatemala, Belize, Dominican Republic, and beyond. LetterPress believes that the quality of Cacao fruit is the future, and they have focused on a select group of farms that they truly believe in – not just buying cacao, but actually investing with them and taking an active role in cultivation. Sending equipment and expertise on site, their goal is to make the best chocolate in the world, in a fully sustainable and transparent way.
