This tasting includes the tasting of the following chocolates:
KANKEL ORIGINS PHILIPPINES
I was excited about this variety by the tropical fruitiness of its palate, the exotic origin and the refreshing touch that managed to transport me to its origin, that is what we have sought from the Philippines. If I can transfer you to Tupi, the region of the Philippines from which it comes, I will have achieved my purpose. One last traveller’s note: the name of this region derives from the word Tufi, vine … sometimes the destination is capricious for a Riojan.
KANKEL ORIGINS PERU
The slight bitterness and the tropical acid touches reminiscent of passion fruit with dried fruits were the notes that made me fall in love with this variety the most. Its color and marble are evidence of its cultivation between the snowy mountain ranges of Mountaln and the Titicaca plateau, an idyllic place to which this appreciated variety, Chuncho, transports you. One last traveling note: the Matsiguengas indigenous people still use it today as a commercial exchange currency.
KANKEL ORIGINS INDIA
Fresh and tangy, the fruity aromas of ripe mango coexist with spicy woods. India has something that envelops, that permeates everything with contrasts and transcendence. One last traveling note: the British East India Company was a pioneer in bringing the first cocoa beans from Indonesia to India, there, small cooperatives of hardworking farmers have developed an agriculture that fascinates and amazes in equal measure.
