This Organic Midnight Mocha Dark Chocolate combines the intense bitter sweetness of our 72% cacao dark chocolate with the rich taste of organic Arabica coffee beans. Though this infusion may at first seem like an overwhelming combination of bitter notes, the coffee actually adds to the flavor profile an unexpected array of mellow fruity notes. This comes from the coffee beans being 100% Arabica, as opposed to the far more common Robusta bean. The Arabica bean variety are grown in special climates and prized for their superior taste, which is often described as having a mellow sweetness and perfumey aromatic qualities ‰ÛÒas opposed to the Robusta bean which is known for it‰۪s harsh taste and burnt rubber-like smell. The delicate sweetness of these perfectly roasted beans saturates each bite of the bar, synergistically melding with the rich bitterness of the dark cocoa, creating a unique edible experience that defines chocolate greatness.
Handcrafted by our master chocolatier using only the finest organic cocoa beans, our chocolates strive to exceed the highest expectations in both quality and taste. We believe that the genuine flavor of the cocoa is what‰۪s important, so we keep our ingredients simple: a rich blend of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa fat, a touch of sweetness from pure organic cane sugar, and‰ÛÓin the case of our milk chocolates‰ÛÓwhole milk to create a silky mouth feel. These simple ingredients are then delicately infused with our own spices and herbs to create a uniquely irresistible taste. The resulting melt-in-your-mouth creations boast the perfect gourmet texture, a rich taste of cocoa, and a variety of complex flavor profiles that promise to satisfy both dedicated connoisseurs and periodic indulgers.
Chocolate, as we know it, is derived from the fatty seeds of the cocoa tree, native to Central and South America. Traditionally made into a bitter drink and celebrated by the Aztecs for its rich taste and medicinal properties, these seeds have played a role in Latin American cultures for thousands of years‰ÛÓwith its name literally translating to ‰ÛÏfood of the gods‰. Around 1500AD, European explorers began transporting cocoa beans back to Europe, where they soon took hold amongst the upper class. Over the years, the supplies and popularity of this divine fruit continued to increase, allowing it to spread its powerfully-delicious reach to almost every corner of the world.
The many health benefits that have now become associated with cocoa are due to its abundant load of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants‰ÛÓwith studies linking moderate cocoa consumption to a variety of benefits, ranging from increasing cardiovascular health to helping control blood pressure.
With a cacao percentage of 72% this bar provides a delicious array of bold bitterness and is one of our most intensely rich chocolates. These flavors are enjoyed best alongside subtle-sweetness, such as a glass of dessert wine or a sweetened coffee drink ‰ÛÒand of course, you can‰۪t go wrong with a tall glass of chilled milk. The bar‰۪s luxurious taste of the Arabica coffee can also be capitalized on by enjoying it, bite for bite, with the traditional treats served with this bold coffee in Middle-Eastern cultures ‰ÛÒsuch as dates or dried fruits. The exotic tastes and aromas lent to the bar by the coffee infusion also compliment dessert spices beautifully ‰ÛÒsuch as cloves, cinnamon, and ginger. Try coarsely grinding the cocoa and sprinkling over a fresh baked pumpkin pie or a batch of cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven!
