ACADEMY OF CHOCOLATE AWARD GOLD WINNER 2018
Ingredients: cocoa beans, cane sugar, cocoa butter
Notes: toffee and orange blossom
Qantu is the discovery of the purest cocoa flavors. We scour Latin America seeking native cocoa beans with exceptional flavors. In our workshop, we transform the beans into a pure bliss that will never fail to surprise your palate.
This is a real momentous tasting experience for me. Something to remember and to repeat over and over again. I am very hard to please with some sort of tasting notes but I can tell you right now, personally, I prefer the Bagua 70% to the Gran Blanco 70%.
Good snap. Very floral, tangy, and fruity on the nose.
From the very start, it shows a solid chocolate personality and an unanticipated toffee-caramel palate successfully involved in the creamy mouthfeel. The flavor profile then becomes a vibrant mouthwatering blackcurrant-jasmine-orange blossom Elisir that develops over a citronella background (think about lemongrass). Balanced citrusy-like bitterness with fresh grassy tones and soft acidity. It also delivers a sweet-sour pink grapefruit juice aftertaste.
I highly recommend this bar together with the Chaska 70% that makes us understand we do not necessarily need inclusion to really tickle our taste buds!
