Description

Lumineux Chocolate created this 75% dark chocolate bar with cacao from Kokoa Kamili Cooperative in Kilombero Valley in Tanzania. They characterize the flavor experience as slightly nostalgic and yet unfamiliar. They say it has bright raspberry notes during the first moments of the experience and then as the flavor journey proceeds, you get notes of sweet cinnamon and raisin.

Lumineux Chocolate produces small-batch, European-style chocolate of the highest quality using the best ingredients and time-honored techniques. Lumineux was started to showcase cocoa beans that are not widely used in the United States, beans from the African continent. While most African cocoa beans are not known for their quality, they carefully searched and sourced the best and most flavorful cocoa from all over Africa and Asia. Their desire is to illuminate the depth and complexity of flavors in these under-appreciated beans. Chocolate, for them, is not merely about indulging; it is about bringing light to the unique differences in the terroir of different African and Asian countries.

Ben and Becca Snyder have spent a combined 20 years in the restaurant industry–Ben as a pastry chef and baker and Becca as a cake decorator and baker. Chocolate became an instant love and an opportunity to use their collective skills to create unique flavor combinations done in unusual ways. They want to open palates to new flavor profiles using ingredients associated with the regions their cocoa beans are sourced from.
