Kekao Monthly Craft Chocolate Club - February
Let's take a closer look at what chocolates you can expect to receive this month with the Kekao Box.
DICK TAYLOR CHOCOLATE:
Adam Dick and Dustin Taylor have always loved crafting. With a background in woodworking and boat building, they have always worked with their hands. Craft is a guiding principle in their lives. After hearing about the craft chocolate movement in the late '00s, they saw similarities in woodworking and craft chocolate making. They became fascinated with the idea of the chocolate experience and in 2010 bought their first chocolate-making equipment. Their chocolate captures and highlights the subtle flavour nuances in the cacao they source from around the world, with the goal to make an enjoyable chocolate experience for us.
Dick Taylor Vanilla Raspberry 72%
Tasting Notes: Berries, Vanilla & Coconut
Raaka is devoted to making uncommonly delicious chocolate that captures the brighter, bolder, and fruitier side of cacao. They make every bar from scratch with unroasted cacao beans, sourced from growers they trust and admire. The unique flavour of their unroasted chocolate is part place, part process. They craft their bars in celebration of each cacao origin's unique character. Their chocolate-making process values the community of growers, producers, and makers whose livelihoods depend on cacao and chocolate. All of their chocolate is made from scratch, bean-to-bar, in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
Raaka Matcha Swirl 63%
Raaka mixed robust matcha into their vegan coconut white chocolate, then swirled it into a 71% dark for a creamy and vibrant visual (and edible!) feast. This is a limited edition release by Raaka.
Tasting Notes: Matcha & Coconut
Founded in 2015, Goodio is a food pioneer with a big heart. The story started with a question: “What if there was a food brand you could trust?”. Goodio was created on the principles of sustainability, well-being, and transparency. It's a vision to bring Nordic-inspired flavors to a chocolate brand for the global consumer.
Goodio Strawberry 49%
A beautiful marriage of organic strawberries and craft chocolate from single origin Peruvian small family cacao. A sweet blessing from Mother Nature.
Tasting Notes: Fruity
OMNOM CHOCOLATE REYKJAVIK
Omnom is a small-batch, craft chocolate maker based in Reykjavík, Iceland. The company started as an experiment to see if the two friends could master how to make chocolate. From the start, they received positive tasting feedback. After receiving positive feedback, they set up a small chocolate-making lab inside a converted gas station and launched. Omnom's mission is to make the best chocolate possible using the highest quality of ingredients.
OmNom Sea Salted Toffee 38%
Golden-hued toffee chocolate whose key components are barley malt, Icelandic milk, and sea salt. Nostalgically reminiscent of sweet and salty toffee biscuits.
Tasting notes: Biscuit & Salted Toffee
