Goldie - Monte Grande Guatemala 70%
"Monte Grande" is the name of the farm where this cacao is lovingly grown. Located in the pacific coastal region of Costa Sur, Guatemala, the farm was bought for 6 gold coins in 1867 by the family that still owns the land today. A beautiful image... But why does this matter? You see, fine chocolate is grown to be eaten and savoured for its unique flavour - flavours that differ depending on where the chocolate is grown. It's what makes craft chocolate so enticing. Each region will have its intricacies, each year will taste slightly different, and - depending on how the chocolate is fermented and roasted - each batch will taste subtly unique.
This bar is intense and can be savoured slowly, so as to notice the flavours as they reveal themselves.
