What a crazy bar this is! Made with just cacao and sugar, yet it tastes so much like citrus fruits have been added. This is the kind of bar that would be a real eye-opener for somebody who has never tasted craft chocolate before. These beans are incredibly fruity to begin with, and that bright flavour is intensified because the beans in this bar are not roasted.

Roasting causes the ‘Maillard reaction’, which is a chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars. It’s what causes caramelisation, and when cacao beans are roasted it reduces the acidity and deepens the flavour. Not roasting cacao removes some of the flavour control for chocolate makers, which is why some people in the industry are opposed to it, but we think it’s great to experiment with new and different techniques. Especially when the results are as wild as this!

Juan Choconat make socially responsible artisan chocolate in Colombia, using only the finest quality heirloom cacao.
