Pure 100% Dark

The fruity Peruvian rainforest cacao cultivated by the indigenous Ashaninka people is the perfect bean for showcasing in its purest form.

Nothing else is added, leaving only natural flavours and sweetness that are coaxed and developed through the careful crafting of the chocolate maker. The holy grail for chocolate purists.

A slow build to intense roasted brazil nuts, with accents of grapefruit and plantain. This bar is un-sweetened but still delivers a beautifully balanced flavour.

No where to hide

In our humble opinion, a 100% bar isn’t worth tasting unless it’s made from bean to bar by a skilled chocolate maker. The reason for this is that most chocolate ‘makers’ are buying in commodity chocolate which they make palatable by adding sugar and flavourings. Without these additions the chocolate would be far too bitter to want to consume, with the possible exception of some hardcore sugar avoiders.

A 100% bar from the right hands, however, is a labour of passion and patience. The discernible flavours and sweetness have to be carefully coaxed out of the bean and preserved at every stage of processing, through fermentation, drying, roasting, grinding, conching, ageing and tempering, a process that spans months and continents! There is nothing to hide behind. At first, the intensity of unadulterated cacao can be a shock, but approached with an attitude to savour rather than scoff, it may even prove a game-changer in your perception and appreciation of chocolate as a food.

    Fabulous smooth chocolate with a sweet citrus aftertaste. There is hardly any bitter aftertaste. It’s so lovely to savour a small piece each day, sheer indulgence. I won’t be able to consider any other especially n knowing that there is only 1 ingredient and that is cocoa beans so 100% it really is.

    Simply the best 100% I have ever tasted. Smooth, slight natural sweetness. Delicious.

    Delicious 100%. My order has just arrived. Goodbye Montezumas & Willie’s Cacao – I have asked them to switch to recycled packaging but they still wrap in foils that can only be sent to landfill. Thank you for your planet-friendly packaging – we really appreciate it and we are delighted to support you (and to eat your delicious products!!)

    Very enjoyable bar of 100%, so balanced and easy-going. Amazing.

    The most delicious 100% I’ve had – I have loved dark chocolate for a while and gradually moved from 70 to 85 to 90 and some are so bitter . I tried this as a bit of a gamble and it is the best – just ordered more!
