An unusually dry and cloudy growing season, combined with a mild roast and minimal conching, has produced arguably the most floral edition of To’ak chocolate thus far.

Mochaccino, roasted almonds, floral
Nose: Floral, green olives, fresh wood.
Palate: Roasted almonds, mochaccino, jasmine.
Finish: Perfumed coffee with roasted almonds on top.
Creamy or nutty cheeses pair beautifully—they serve to neutralize some of the bitterness and bring out the nutty notes. Think mild brie, triple-cremes, and Alpine-style cheeses. For spirits, Zacapa 23 rum is a top choice. Properly aged Cognac or Tequila and a wide range of whiskies will all work well. In the realm of wines, go with a super sweet fortified wine like Pedro Ximenez sherry.
Appellation: Piedra de Plata
Variety: Heirloom Nacional
Fermentation: 4-5 days
The goal with Dark was to highlight the emblematic characteristics of Nacional cacao from the Arriba growing region in Ecuador – akin to the French province of Burgundy in the wine world.
The higher cacao percentage, longer fermentation time, and relatively shorter conch time have produced a strongly floral aroma that continues to intermingle with red fruits and earthy notes on the palate.
Nose: Flowers and herbs, trace of nuts.
Palate: Floral, woody, herbal, earthy, berries.
Finish: Long, dark, rich and herbal.

A ROCK SOLID CLASSIC DARK CHOCOLATE
A fruity, complex salted dark chocolate to end all salted dark chocolates. Made with single origin cacao from Zorzal Cacao, a farm and fermentary within a bird sanctuary in the Dominican Republic, and sprinkled with Peruvian pink salt sourced from Salt of The Earth Co. We think New York Magazine said it best: this bar has a “deep, dark, mysterious flavor with hints of cherry; and a finish as long as a David Foster Wallace footnote.”
Origin: Zorzal Cacao, Dominican Republic

A must-try for the 100% lovers. Menakao’s bar packs far more of a punch than Akesson’s and Pralus’ more mellow Madagascan 100% bars. This award winning dark bar is an intense 100% Madagascan dark chocolate. The bar has no sugar in it at all and is made with nothing but cacao, revealing all of the richness of the cocoa.
Unwrap the chocolate and you are instantly hit by a strong fruity aroma. Delicious and inviting as this may be, don’t be fooled into breaking off a great chunk as this chocolate has a serious intensity! The initial berries have a citrus edge, leading to a powerful and sharp finish. A roasted note is mixed with the fruits, which reminds us a little of strong filter coffee. The almost sherbet – like astringency, gives a mouth-watering quality as the chocolate fills your mouth with strong flavours.
This bar doesn’t just taste good, it does good. Madagascan chocolate maker Menakao proudly crafts its chocolate on the island, using only local ingredients. Unfortunately, this is rare even for craft chocolate – it’s estimated that less than 5% of the world’s chocolate is produced in the same country the cocoa is grown. By making the chocolate in Madagascar in addition to growing the cacao on the island, Menakao generate about 4-5 times the benefit of Fair Trade for the local Madagascan economy.
In honour of the men and women of Madagascar of all ethnicities who are at the heart of Menakao chocolate, Menakao decided that the bars should proudly bear the image “not [of] the face of Madagascar, but [of] Madagascan faces.” The beautiful image on the wrapping of this bar is of a Betsimisaraka man. The Betsimisarka (Betsimisaraka meaning “many and inseparable”), are celebrated for their rhythmic dancing traditions and are the largest group on the east coast of Madagascar, a region noted for lush vegetation, dense forest and tropical climate.
“I that from Tabascao come, with heritage of Mayan blood, where ground cacao gave a new meaning to water.” (Carlos Pellicer). This dark spicy chocolate is made in an authentic Mexican traditional style, using the ancient criollo hybrid cacao of Tabasqueño.
