Not all cocoa tastes the same - Like wine and coffee, the flavour of cocoa is influenced by the soil and region it is grown in.

Rather than buy cocoa products from multinational processors who have blended beans from many different origins to create a uniform taste, the Mortimer Chocolate Company find the best single origin cocoa beans and blend these with just a small amount of sugar. By creating a powder, not a bar, the chocolate is not over-processed, and dissolves easily when used in baking or to make hot chocolate.

There are over 60,000 growers of cocoa in Ecuador and over half of these are smallholders with just a few hectares of land. Here there is a variant of the Forestero cocoa called Arriba, especially common in the vicinity of the Rio Guayas. This has a finer flavour than the standard Forestero, with a heady chocolate aroma. The dark chocolate flavour carries with it a hint of tropical spices and smoky tobacco.

Use for baking, to make chocolate sauce, or as a hot chocolate drink. It can also be used to make a vegan hot chocolate by mixing it with warmed non-dairy milk. You'll find recipe inspiration on our pinterest board.
