African Red Drinking Chocolate
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 quality cocoa beans together with the minimum of processing, means it 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.
