Foundry Chocolate Ucayali River, Peru - 2017 vs 2018
$23.00 $25.00

A rare opportunity to taste two vintages of the same bar side by side. Just like fine wine, high quality, single origin craft chocolate will taste different from year to year, as it's a pure expression of the cacao beans, without the over-processing and unnecessary added ingredients of industrial chocolate. Each year's cacao harvest is affected by what we call terroir - things like the soil, climate and terrain.

Sometimes those differences in flavour are subtle, but the difference between Ucayali River's 2017 and 2018 harvest was quite pronounced. These two bars are made with the same ingredients and with beans from exactly the same place, but the 2017 has a distinctive floral note, whereas the 2018 has much more of a tropical fruit flavour. Pretty amazing, if you're a geek about things like this!
