Taste your way through the world of chocolate as you indulge in Norman Love Confections BLACK™, a collection of premium dark chocolates that celebrates the unique flavors of five distinct areas. With cocoa percentages varying from 64% to 97%, these five confections are a must-try for any dark chocolate connoisseur.
Includes two (2) chocolates from each growing region: Vietnam (64% cocoa), Ghana (68% cocoa), Peru (70% cocoa), Tanzania (75%), El Salvador (97% cocoa).
64% Vietnam: Fresh and spicy Li Chu reveals light reddish tints that make it stand out from other couvertures. Its forthright chocolate tastes offers notes of vanilla and nut with a touch of licorice. These then give way to fresh and acidulated notes ensuring length in the mouth.
68% Nyangbo (Ghana): Cacao farming has been a tradition in southern Ghana for over a century. The beans that grow in this hot and sunny yet fertile and humid climate are the foundation for the Valrhona Grand Cru de Terroir called NYANGBO Pure Ghana. Farmers grow one of Africa’s best cacaos in the soil constantly swelled by tropical rains located between the beaches of the Gulf of Guinea and Lake Volta. It is distinguished by a subtle acidity that allows a note of round chocolate warmth to develop, followed by a soft and sweet spiciness.
70% Peru: Citrus and intense bitterness. Andoa Dark 70% is an organic dark chocolate made from the finest organic and fair trade certified cocoa beans from Peru. Tasting starts with a burst of freshness and a powerful bitterness which becomes more nuanced over time.
75% Tanzania: This Tanzanian origin dark chocolate couverture is both powerful and tangy with subtle notes of fruit and spices. When the fruity aromas are released, you feel all the intensity and power of this exceptional cocoa. Tanzanie Origine chocolate has a spicy, peppery and citric aroma profile.
97% Jiquilisco Bay (El Salvador): Cacao was first planted in the luscious sandy loam soil of Hacienda La Carrera near Jiquilisco Bay about 100 years ago. The criollo influence in these beans, along with the near-sea level terroir, creates a chocolate mellow enough to eat as a 97%. Starting with a floral approach, this chocolate develops with grassy, slight spice, black tea, and hints of berry fruit flavor notes. Acquired through “Fair to Farmer”, a direct trade relationship established by Mesocacao, a chocolate startup specializing in Centeral American flavors.
