Our team discovered chocolate makers Erik and Ariane Hansen at a local festival. We were instantly impressed with the quality of their chocolate, showcasing a complex acidity that highlighted origin characteristics so we had to bring some in to offer.
We wanted to do a special collaboration and so we asked Erik to incorporate our Stardust into a bar! This is their Maya Mountain chocolate as the base with our specialty instant added. We have brought in the same chocolate from the same batch so you can order them together to experience how the coffee synergises with this lovely bar. Initially only included with our 2023 Advent Calendar, it is now available for everyone!
From DesBarres Chocolate:
"Maya Mountain Cacao, founded in 2010, put Belize on the craft chocolate map as the first exporter in the country to produce high-quality, centrally-fermented, transparently sourced cacao. Working with 350+ smallholder cacao farming families, most of them indigenous Q’eqchi’ and Mopan Maya, Maya Mountain Cacao centrally processes all cacao and uses three unique stages of sun drying to create optimal flavor. We're thrilled to be able to use this sweet, delicious cacao with a socially conscious pedigree.
Our 72% bar highlights the special flavours in the Maya Mountain cacao, a bright chocolate with light tropical fruit and a honey sweetness."
