Couvertures - Madagascar - coins - 2.5kg bag

Made with premium cocoa from the Red Island.
Madagascar, also called the 'Great Red Island', is a true treasure chest for some of the world's most extraordinary flavours and ingredients: vanilla, tobacco, spices, exotic fruits...
The cocoa grown here reveals a very intense round and sweet taste with a tempered bitterness. It is topped with refreshing, moderately acid flavours and fruity notes that remind of raspberries, juniper berries, citric fruits and ripe yellow fruits such as apricot and pineapple.
Madagascar is lovely to savour as such in chocolate bars and tablets or moulded confectionery. But it can also be a true chameleon, inviting you to explore exciting pairings with a wide variety of ingredients. Think of sweeter ingredients such as honey and speculoos or ingredients with a moderate bitter or acid character: aromatic coffees, teas, spices with a slightly sharper taste, olive oil, etc.
