Chocolate-making on an artisan basis is a long and painstaking process. We craft our chocolate from a ‘House Blend’ of premium fair trade crushed and single origin cocoa beans, which are sorted, roasted, cracked, winnowed, then mixed, refined and conched in our own Cocoa Bean Chocolate-Making Lab: a process that takes up to 5-days! We then temper and mould these Spiced teXtuRe snacking chocolate bar in micro batches. For an overview of the complete process, see the bean-to-bar chocolate-making section of our website. Finally, we bag each bar by hand in our graphic artist custom designed packaging.
The teXtuRe: We apply a science-based process that identifies specific aromatic compounds present in different food stuff and combine them based on their synergy with one and another. Specifically this teXtuRe bar includes;
The chocolate is textured with honey roasted almonds, which are a great aromatic match to chocolate then spiced with freshly ground black pepper, which is also a great aromatic match to almonds. A sprinkle of Fleur de Sel sea salt - mostly aromatically neutral - enhances the overall gustatory experience as a taste modifier of bitterness.
