WHAT'S INSIDE KEKAO'S CRAFT CHOCOLATE BAR NOVEMBER BOX
Chapon Chocolatier is a creation by Patrice Chapon, a multi-award winning chocolatier and chocolate visionary.
Before becoming his own chocolatier, he worked various culinary jobs. One of Patrice's early culinary jobs was as an official ice cream maker for Buckingham Palace, where he satisfied the British royal family’s sweet tooth with his fresh fruit sorbets and ice cream.
In London, Patrice found his true calling, chocolate. He fell in love with chocolate displays at Harrod's department store. When he returned to France in 1985, he began making chocolates in his workshop.
Fast forward to present day and his chocolates have won numerous awards, Chapon now has six stores, five in France and one in Japan.
Chapon Venezuela Rio Caribe 100%
Having shared the 100% tablet with discerning chocolate experts and bean-to-bar novices alike, we always get the same reaction of joy and surprise. For the purist the nuanced notes of dried fruits and wood and for the newcomer the familiar note of a chocolate brownie. Great snap with a creamy texture and low acidity, there is barely any bitterness. We literally eat this bar straight, paired with an unsweetened coffee or for fun pair with a small puff of homemade organic cotton candy!
Tasting notes: Dried Fruits, Wood & Brownies
