This blend is created from 100% pure cocoa, made from roasted beans and ground into a smooth and homogeneous liquor. This unsweetened soul of chocolate is great for tuning and intensifying the flavor of your chocolates. It can easily be mixed with chocolate to achieve a more intense taste and color, or to create you signature chocolate recipe. It also creates a great ingredient for flavoring ice cream, ganaches, pralines, or other ingredient bases to achieve a deeper, darker color and intense cocoa taste. These beans are meticulously ground in stages to obtain the highest level of fineness. At the base lies a cocoa bean blend, of mainly West African cocoa beans for a solid cocoa body, topped with beans from Asia and Latin America to create the top notes and finer flavors.
