Bahen & Co. | Stone Ground Chocolate Bar | 70% Madagascar
MADAGASGAR PLANTATION: This historic farm has produced since 1920. Today it grows some of the finest flavoured aromatic cacao remaining on the planet. Situated upon rich fertile soils of the Sambirano Valley - the cacao produced here is often referred to by the locals as ‘green gold’. The farm has a unique combination of heirloom cacao, which originated from Venezuela and Mexico. The genetics for the farm began their journey through the Pacific and across the Indian Ocean from the latter part of the 17th century. The farm practices modern box fermentation techniques with slow sun drying to complete the post harvest which ensures maximum flavour development. We use a very low and slow roast profile to preserve this bean's delicate character.
TASTE DESCRIPTION: The chocolate bursts with flavours of citrus fruits, red berries and ripe raisins.
- 70% Ingredients: Organic cocoa beans and organic cane sugar
- Weight: 75g
Bahen & Co. makes stone ground chocolate from bean to bar. A traditional approach to chocolate making that returns to a slower pace of a previous time. A former life as a winemaker has seeded in Josh Bahen an attention to detail and understanding that achieving simplicity in chocolate making is harder than complex. Taking a simplistic approach to respect flavour and connect back to the source. Restored from a vintage age and lead by a 1930’s Barth Sirocco Ball Roaster and circa 1910 Guitard Melangeur, the chocolate machines operate slow and cool with the wisdom needed to preserve the taste of distant places.
The chocolate factory operates from the family farm in Margaret River - Western Australia. A region with a raw natural beauty and strong community that supports the efforts of its small producers.
