Review: Pacari Raw 85% (***1/2)

Pacari. If there is one name omni-present in the fair trade – organic – origin chocolate, it is Pacari. This Ecuadorian chocolate company has an own vision on the production of quality chocolate with fair trade, organic cacao.

Review: Mayta Chocolate – 71% Arriba (****)

It has been a while since I reviewed any chocolates. A burned tongue was the evildoer. It simply eradicated a part of my taste, making everything very dull on the palate. Not your ideal way to taste the delicate flavours in a product like chocolate. Luckily everything healed by now, but it makes you appreciate the…

Review: J.D. Gross – Equateur 70% a l’orange (***)

You can’t buy just one chocolate bar… so last time I visited Lidle, I bought the 81% Arriba Superior and this one… An orange filled dark bar. Because I know my wife likes it. And when it was time to review the bar (two weeks later), I noticed almost half a bar was already missing….

Review: J.D. Gross 81% Arriba Superieur (**)

Review: Amazonas 60% + Ecuador 70% by J.D. Gross

German chocolate, there used to be a time when I laughed at the idea. Now I know better. On the internet I noticed some buzz about products from the J.D. Gross line, sold at the Lidl supermarkets. Now Lidl is known for low price-no frill stores so one would hardly expect to find Single Origin…

Review: Ethiquable – Ecuador 80% and Madagascar 85%

Strange how you suddenly seem to notice things you didn’t see before, once you get interested in something new. Last week, I walked into my local Delhaize supermarket, looking if they sell any products from Lindt, to start off my discovery conquest in the chocolate World. Lindt is one of the brands you’ll likely find…
