40% Nicalizo Caramelised Milk Chocolate Bar - 2017 Academy Of Chocolate Awards Winner
Award winning smooth, rich and subtly sweet bean to bar dark milk chocolate created by slowly caramelising organic whole milk and blending with Trinitario Nicalizo cocoa beans grown in the tropical forests of the northern mountains of Nicaragua.
Awarded Silver at the Academy Of Chocolate Awards 2017
The Nicalizo variety was determined to be a Heirloom Cocoa by the Heirloom Cacao Preservation (HCP) initiative. Heirloom beans are distinctive in their characteristics and present special/unusual but well-balanced flavours, produced through the beans genetics, terroir, and post-harvest processing.
In September 2015, the International Cocoa Organisation recognised Nicaragua as a 100% Fine Cocoa Origin. Only 9 countries in the world are recognised as such.
