DUTCH ORIGINAL DARK 71%

A new Dutch classic

 

The original Dutch chocolate tradition is famous for the art of blending premium cacao. We crafted a harmonious blend of organic certified cacao from latin America, the Caribbean and Indonesia. This makes for a bar with a generous, layered and lingering flavour.


TASTING NOTES

Warm balanced mix of nuts, flowers and herbs. Pleasing bite, the melt is just right and a long chocolaty aftertaste with a hint of coffee.

THREE FARMER COOPERATIVES

The organic certified cacao in this blend is grown in agro forestry systems amongst other crops. Three single origins from Peru, Dominican Republic and Bali bring excitemtn to the Dutch Original Blend.

The Peruvian cacao is grown by Colpa de Loros: 250 farmers in the Ucayali region. The area was once known as a drug crime zone. With the help of international development funds, sustainable cacao plantations were founded. Certifications: “Organic” and “Fair for Life”. The cacao has pleasant impressions of honey, caramel and soft fruits.

Öko Caribe comes from 165 farmers nestled in the heart of the Duarte province in the Dominican Republic. This award winning cacao is famous for its consistent quality. The farmers receives continuously agricultural training. Öko Caribe provides micro-finance loans for its members when needed. The cacao is characterised by earthiness, coffee, red fruits and a hint of nutmeg.

The Balinese cacao is grown by the 230 Kerta Semaya Samaniya Farmers (KSS) in the Jembrana region of the Island, famous for its volcanic fertile soils. In 2011, KSS managed to grow the first organic cacao in South-East Asia. The cacao is known for floral, herbal and spicy notes.

ONE BAR FOR NOW, ONE BAR FOR LATER

Each Heinde & Verre box contains 2 bars, one bar for now, one for later. At Heinde & Verre we take chocolate and your enjoyment very serious. Quality chocolate needs to be protected so we have developed the perfect packaging to preserve all the natural flavours. An aluminium pouch protects against light, humidity, dust and dirt. A double air tight seal protects against odours. We have extracted part of the air to reduce oxidisation and moisture.
