75% Dark Chocolate handmade by us in our factory just outside Padstow in Cornwall.
Tasting Notes: A strong, spicy chocolate with fruity and liquorice notes. From a nation famed for its bold tasting cacao.
Cacao Facts: Tanzania is a relative newcomer to the collective of world growers of cacao, with production starting in the 1960's although the inception of cacao growing can be traced back as far as the 1880's. The Tanzanian crop is not known for its sizeable yields, but what they do grow is highly regarded. Over 99% of production is organic, although much of it is not officially certified.
Overseen by the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro and surrounded by the aquatic beauty of the African Great Lakes, Tanzania's tropical mix of high temperatures and rainy seasons hosts a small but convincing cocoa production. Mainly concentrated in the area surrounding Lake Malawi, cocoa culture is more than 50% organic and provides some spectacular fine flavour beans, giving Tanzania its unique reputation.
