The African Red is one of the most pure and sumptuous chocolate experiences you can find. It is sourced from the best cocoa growing regions of West Africa. It exhibits all the hallmarks of African grown Forastero cocoa beans and a hint of Trinitario cocoa beans, with delightful high fruity notes.
These beans have been processed with the upmost care from tree to cup. African Red is made using most of the cocoa bean, thus retaining most of the cocoa liquor which is usually reserved for hard chocolates. The high quality cocoa beans, which are minimally processed, has very high levels of anti-oxidants and flavonoids. These are the great "health giving" properties of fine chocolate.
An intense dark chocolate experience, deep and powerful, with delightful hints of plum, dried cherry and sun-dried muscatels. It finishes off with an amazing textural resonance on the tongue and in the mouth that echoes delightfully for an age.
You might be familiar with this taste if you've patronised cafes such as Chye Seng Huat Hardware, Carpenter and Cook, Pacamara Coffee Roasters, Percolate Coffee, Loysel's Toy, Coast and Company, and Grain Traders, all of whom use Grounded Pleasures drinking chocolate.
Serving suggestion: Use between 15-20g per cup of drinking chocolate (3-4 teaspoons). Because it is a pure, intense, complex, origin cocoa with no fillers (which are a feature of many other drinking chocolates), you will find that you'd have to use less African Red cocoa for a better, more intense hot chocolate that what you might be accustomed to.
Gluten free, dairy free, nut free, GMO free & ethically sourced.
