A chocolate premiere: dark, fine chocolate produced from the very first organic and fair-trade cocoa in Madagascar!
Cocoa from Madagascar is in great demand worldwide. It is also rare, as Madagascar produces the best African cocoa by a mile. Finally, now, this wonderful island's noble cocoa is available in organic and fair trade quality.
This cocoa is cultivated in the legendary Sambirano Valley, Madagascar's main cocoa-growing region, where there are a few big plantations, but also many small cocoa farms. Zotter buys our cocoa beans from CPCS - Cooperative Premium Cacao Sambirano, a union of 170 small farms. The cocoa is grown in volcanic soil, thriving in the island's tropical and humid climate, and is a mixture of Trinitario and Criollo, the world's finest cocoa bean. An exquisite combination, which we gently roast in Zotter's bean-to-bar manufactory, then conche for a relatively short time in order to produce a very distinctive single-origin 75% chocolate. It boasts a strong note of terroir with the cocoa bean's typical range of fruity flavours as well as possessing hints of citrus, red berries and a pleasing acidity accompanied by a little sweetness, courtesy of raw cane sugar.
