This light roast dark chocolate bar from Fresco Chocolate is crafted with cocoa beans from the ABOCFA cooperative based in Suhum, Ghana.
Ghana’s ABOCFA is one of four Organic/Fair Trade farmer cooperatives in Ghana - known for producing the highest quality traceable cacao in the region. The light roasted cacao in our Recipe 260 bar highlights the natural acidity of this cacao uncovering a sweetness reminiscent of fig jam. Next, the chocolate is heated, mixed and aerated, this is conching. Our subtle conche step slightly mellows the cacao’s natural acidity resulting in chocolate with balanced, complex flavors. A small amount of added cocoa butter enhances the chocolate’s silky texture as it melts on your palate.
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.
