100% Pure Cacao from Willie Harcourt-Cooze
This bar is made from beans from the Sambirano Valley in North West Madagascar. Madagascar, famed for its remarkable biodiversity, with many of its plant and animal life unique to the island, is well known for its superior cacao. The beans produce a bar with a wonderful flavour bursting with juicy summer fruits.
Waslala is located in central Nicaragua, where cacao has been grown since Pre-Colombian times. The country possesses fertile farmland and vast tropical rain forests perfect for the cultivation of cacao. It is an increasingly important cacao growing region and I loved these beans straight away because they produce very unusual bars with fresh pecan notes.
Located in the north east of Colombia, the State of Santander is now an important cacao-producing region in Colombia. Here the excellent climate and soil conditions give rise to a unique and high quality cacao. These bars have a lovely chocolatey flavour with soft notes of redcurrant and spice.
