In the chocolate competition world, the two-ingredient bar showcases the chocolatier’s craft.
With only the quality of the cacao to draw on, the best beans are used, and the processing means all.
South Pacific Cacao’s 70% Makira dark uses only beans from a World Vision partnership with smallholder Solomons cacao farmers in Makira, and plain, flavour-neutral white sugar.
The beans are solar-dried using new technology, women in the community take part in harvest and sorting, and emphasis is on improved methods and training, increased yield and long-term economic empowerment.
SPC imports a small quantity of these special, premium beans for this very limited-edition product.
The fruity notes of this bar is remarkable, and it carries through to flavours – think the richness of prunes and dried fig. There’s the slightest touch of tamarind-like astringency to round it out.
Ingredients: Makira organic cacao, white sugar.
