Goldie - Monte Grande Guatemala 70% Dark Chocolate
"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.
