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 6 days of fermentation, part in oak.
There are several regions in Peninsular and East Malaysia that are named Pasir Puteh, or white sand. However, in Sabah, the cacao from this particular origin is unique. In a fenced, sunrise-facing orchard that is surrounded by houses on hills, 95% of the cacao trees here are of a single variety — BR25 of the Balung River Estate selections.
Young pods are deep burgundy but bright red once ripened. Discovered in the same state before 1979, the BR25 is currently wildly popular with growers in Indonesia as well as the Philippines.
Once harvested, the cacao is fermented in wooden boxes, typically for seven days with three turns or aerations, then sun-dried on tables in a greenhouse.
