Lucocoa - Dark Choc
Like a good conversationalist, the Guatemalan puts you at your ease. Its nutty, deep chocolate taste subsides into a subtle fruit finish. The ideal dinner party guest.
Ingredients: Cocoa beans, coconut sugar, cocoa butter, lucuma.
Amarachi Clarke founded Lucocoa in 2015 after realising that there was no breadth or depth of offering in a market dominated by poor quality chocolate.
Discovering that cacao, just like wine and coffee, delivers intricate flavours when correctly roasted, but that the market instead chose to sell over roasted and emulsified blends of bulk generic cacao, she decided to do something about it by making chocolate from bean to bar removing all nasties and not using refined sugar - Opting for unrefined coconut sugar and lucuma a fruit from Peru instead.
