60% Honduran Dark Hand Tempered BarRegular price £5.00
This Mayan Red Trinitario Cacao variety is unique to Honduras and was almost extinct when it was found in 2006 within three neighbouring farms in the Honduran jungle. The trees are spaced 3x3m apart to ensure that they can live off the nutrients of the soil, minimising the use of fertilisers or pesticides.
The cocoa trees are nursed intensively when they are young to keep fungus and insects at bay, and in the dry season large leaves are laid around the foot o the trees to ensure the correct level of humidity.
The beans are collected, fermented for 5 days and dried in the sun for 7-8 days.
This chocolate from Bare Bones has been hand-tempered by White Rabbit, and has flavour notes of full-bodied and luxurious with notes of fudge, double cream and raisins.
