4.95

The Ottange farm in Madagascar is the smallest of eight that make up the Mava plantation, recently acquired from state ownership and revitalised after a period of neglect.

This tiny farm – just 12 hectares – on the Rowena river is doing all the work on site to grow, harvest and process this outstanding ‘terroir’ cacao, and it’s some of the best we’ve tasted so far.

 

Bean Varietal Malagasy Trinitario

Bean Origin Ramena River, Madagascar

Cocoa 74%

Grind Length 28hrs

Conch Length 31hrs

Ageing 40days

 

Tasting Notes

Early bursting fruit notes quickly giving way to roasted nut flavours with a light sourness. A pleasant caramel end rises from the sharp fruit and nut flavours to give a long lingering cocoa end.

 

The Chocolarder is one of the only small batch bean-to-bar chocolate makers in the country. We produce fine quality, stone ground chocolate using organic beans imported from single estate, family run plantations in Venezuela, Java, Madagascar, Peru and the Dominican Republic. The select beans used at The Chocolarder are roasted, winnowed and ground over 4 days before being left to mature for 30 days. The chocolate is then hand tempered and made into bars. This obsessive attention to detail yields some of the finest chocolate in production today.
