Fresco Chocolate - 72% Oko Caribe, Dominican Republic (Recipe 224, Medium Roast)
This medium roast dark chocolate bar from Fresco Chocolate is crafted with cocoa beans from the Oko Caribe based in Duarte, Dominican Republic.
They hand-selected the highest quality Organic and Fair Trade Oko Caribe cacao available for this unique chocolate. Days of stone grinding achieve a silky texture. Next, the chocolate is heated, mixed and aerated, this is conching. Our medium conche step mellows each flavor note, creating a smooth blend reminiscent of caramel and milk chocolate with subtle hints of red fruit and plum. A small amount of added cocoa butter enhances the chocolate’s silky texture as it melts on your palate.
