About this chocolate bar:
Like single origin coffee beans, the single origin chocolate bar is made of cacao beans from a single Malaysian farm to exhibit its unique flavour characteristics. The cocoa beans have gone through 33 days of fermentation.
Batang Kali is located on the West-facing slope of the Malaysian main range. These cocoa trees were planted in the 80’s by the Penang Plantation Co and were previously abandoned for years before we rehabilitated them in 2017.
After a year of following strict farming practices, we were able to harvest. Older cocoa trees expressed more terroir due to their established roots, making unusual chocolate. However, most trees needed extensive and prolonged rehabilitation, we had to limit our operations here for the time being.
This means that this growth will be under nature's care until we revisit it in the future. This is a new fermentation method with cempedak to enhance the complexity of flavours. The chocolate profile is terroir-centric, exhibiting prominent minerality, jaggery, tropical fruits, sugarcane sweetness & hints of cempedak on aftertaste.

All chocolate bars are tempered chocolate, hence it does not melt easily and is safe to ship. We recommend leaving the chocolate bar aside overnight at room temperature once you receive it and the chocolate bar will be perfect to consume the next day.
