Madagascar Lazan'ny 70% Chocolate Bar :The island has some outstanding cocoa genetics. Yet to enable UCLS to enter the international fine flavour market, improvements were needed. Not much effort went into the fermentation and drying of the cocoa beans before, as middlemen would take up the beans regardless of quality. Putting in this effort, however, is key to ensuring that the cocoa reaches its full potential and will interest premium chocolate makers like us. Super bright red fruits and strangely not much else. Bright red fruits from the beginning and then soft melt into some cocoa and bitterness with a continued acidic flair. Finish is fruity & distinct.
