The milk in this chocolate helps balance the typically smoky flavor that is so dominant in Indonesian Chocolate.
About the Origin
The beans behind this splendid chocolate are part of the precious Criollo family of cacao beans. They are harvested on the Island of Java, in Indonesia, and collected from the farmers by a state-owned organization that ensures that the farmers get paid more than their fair share of the profits. This organization ensures that the high premium paid for the beans are reinvested in initiatives that develop the communities as well as those that promote sustainable and socially responsible farming practices.
Cocoa beans (beans from Java), sugar, cocoa butter, MILK powder (20%), emulsifier (soy lecithin) and vanilla. May contain traces of milk and nuts.
Unopened, the chocolates have a shelf-life of 24 months when kept in a dry place between 12 and 18° C.
