Pralus Indonésie 75%, 100g
Criollo varietal cocoa beans.
The Island of Java in Indonesia is well known for the quality of its cocoa beans which come from Criollo trees brought by the spanish in the 17th century. Javanese beans have particular flavour profile due to the island terroir and the harvest, fermentation and drying method used. Add to this Francois Pralus' magic touch and the result is this amazing chocolate that imparts a hint of smokiness.
Exotic spices swimming in a creamy sea of cocoa. The flavour develops slowly at its own pace, and reveals some notes of mushroom broth.
