Hogarth Craft Chocolate Madagascar Chefs Chocolate 70% 1kg is made by the award winning Nelson Chocolate Maker Hogarth Craft Chocolate.
The 70% Madagascar cacao is sourced directly from the Akesson Estate in the Sambirano Valley. The estate has been in the Akesson family for generations, it produces cocoa, pepper and other spices.
The Madagascan cacao has a reputation for fruitiness and our Madagascan does not disappoint. When the chocolate is being made the air is rich with acidic fruit aroma being given off by the beans. The beans themselves have a plum colour and the chocolate has a reddish hue which all speaks of the berry and raisin flavours that develop. Rich, bittersweet and tart, one can get a sense of the fruit that becomes the bean, that becomes the chocolate.
This chocolate has starts with bright berry acidity which melts into warm raisin notes.
