This tasting includes the tasting of the following chocolates:
KANKEL ORIGINS MADAGASCAR
If there is a traveling variety, like me, this is it. From Venezuela to Mexico, then to the Philippines, passing through Java, to finish in Madagascar, the red island. A fertile and fecund land in which the mixture spreads, amalgamates it and favors the red fruit acidity that surrounds this variety. One last traveling note: today the plantation of a retired Swedish diplomat named Bertil Akesson treasures a cocoa of unsurpassed quality, a stranded globetrotter.
KANKEL ORIGINS UGANDA
Elegant and complex, delicate and deep, the duality that is manifested in the varieties of this area is extremely attractive. Berries, honey and hazelnuts run over in the mouth with pickled sensations of figs and dates for a subtle finish with notes of toffee and wine fruit. One last traveling note: in the Semuliki forest, a corner of Uganda, the small farmers who grow cocoa are sowing a future and prosperity.
