Satongo 72.2%
Extremely balanced in all its expressions

Satongo too is based on Africa’s three most exciting cocoa varieties of the moment: Sao Thomé, Tanzania and Ghana. They are blended and roasted with great care to reveal even the most subtle aromas that lie hidden in the core of the cocoa.

Satongo offers a completely different character. It has a solid, strong cocoa body but is harmonious and balanced in every sense: between cocoa, bitter and sugar; between sweet, sour and aromatic.
Satongo has a perfectly round taste. Hints of red fruits, herbal aromas and Bourbon vanilla give it a refined, long lasting finale.

Otovalo 65%
Perfectly round taste with hints of red fruits, herbs and Bourbon vanilla.

The taste
Otovalo combines a solid cocoa body with a wide palette of fruit, liquorice and flower aromas. Its taste even evokes refined alcohol and liqueur accents and a refreshing acidity.

Recommended for…
… creations that demand a firm chocolate body and refined liqueur-like aromas. Otovalo harmonises brilliantly with stronger flavours such as anis, even with olive oil and liqueurs. On the other hand, it is even compelling enough to stand alone and offer a fascinating chocolate palate.”

The blend
The Otovalo blend contains Ivory Coast and Sao Thomé beans that give it its solid cocoa body. The Ecuadorian cocoa beans selected are renowned for their fruity
flavours. The end result is a very well balanced and powerful dark chocolate.
