WHAT'S INSIDE KEKAO'S CRAFT CHOCOLATE CLUB SEPTEMBER BOX
It was in April of 1954 when the master chocolatier Francesc Agrás embarked on a long journey through the best patisseries and confectioneries in Europe. His passion for excellence in artisan confectionery was the seed that led to the founding of one of the most renowned Catalan chocolate factories: Bombons Blanxart. It all started in a modest workshop in the neighborhood of Les Corts (Barcelona) and feeding a dream: bringing the best cocoa beans from Ghana, Congo, and Guayaquil to chocolate.
They’ve enjoyed success, but despite their growth, Blanxart’s core principles haven’t changed – everything from the roasting to the packaging, inspired by the Barcelona History Museum, remains the same. Blanxart’s logo and branding faithfully reflect its philosophy, rooted in tradition and cultural heritage.
Blanxart Nicaragua Eco-Organic 85%
This is a bar of organic dark chocolate made with 85% Criollo and Trinitario cocoa from Nicaragua. It is one of the smoothest 85% chocolate bars we have tried. Definitely a bar for those who are new to high percentage bars.
Tasting notes: Lemon, Orange, Flowers & Nuts
