Made with Amelonado cocoa bean varieties from the island Sao Tome. In 1822, Sao Tome and Principe were the first African islands to import cocoa from Brazil - for which they were baptized 'the chocolate islands'. Today still, a few direct descendants of the original Forastero plants from South America can be found on the island, yielding very high quality beans. Sao Tome dark chocolate has a very intense and complex taste, rich in roasted cacao, and with plenty of refreshing fruity notes: apricot, red fruits, citrus and even hints of tea. 

Pairs well with Curiositea, Rwanda Silverback, Earl Grey China Moon, Vietnam Mountain Snow Tea. 

Matched with our Ethiopian Kochere Yirgacheffe coffee.

A delicious hot chocolate can be prepared by adding 25g of chocolate to 150ml of your milk of choice (or to your own taste) and microwaving for a couple of minutes, stopping to stir after 1 minute. If you want to create a frothy version simply shake in a securely lidded shaker or used a milk steamer if you have one.

As the drink is made with pure chocolate there should be no need to sweeten, whether you like milk or dark chocolate.
