Fresco Chocolate - 68% Ghana (Recipe 261, Dark Roast)
This dark roast dark chocolate bar from Fresco Chocolate is crafted with cocoa beans from the ABOCFA cooperative based in Suhum, Ghana.
ABOCFA is one of four Organic/Fair Trade farmer cooperatives in Ghana - known for producing the highest quality traceable cacao in the region. Our dark roast produces deep chocolatey and roasted nut flavors. Next, the chocolate is heated, mixed and aerated, this is conching. Our medium conche step mellows and balances the flavors producing deep fudgy notes.
Fresco Chocolate started with an idea: people who love chocolate may want to know more about it. What ingredients are used? How is it made? What variables affect taste? Their goal is to answers these questions by making chocolate in unique ways, adjusting ingredients and processes to create new chocolate experiences. Then they offer these chocolates for your critique. Their unique variables include varying the roast profile and conching, creating unique recipes for each origin they work with.
