BELCOLADE Origins Noir Papua New Guinea 73 Cacao-Trace

 

Our Cacao-Trace expert, Sylvestre Awono, insists on taking the time to dry our organic beans

The BELCOLADE Origins range takes you back to the terroirs in which our cocoa beans are cultivated. The result is a range of distinctive single-origin chocolates that embodies the spirit of each region of origin. Papua New Guinea is the birth ground of some of the most flavorful cocoa beans around the world. Here, we worked hand-in-hand with local farmers to unveil that unique taste. True taste. Usually local farmers in this region dry their beans by using wooden fire. The smoke, however, had a huge impact on the natural flavors. We changed that. By implementing the purest possible way of drying: using only the sun. Gently, carefully, slowly, we dried. In addition we optimized the fermentation procedure and we careful roast the beans. All this to expose the authentic flavors of the cocoa bean. Together with our farmers we created a true chocolate taste, that surprised everyone. A long lasting, powerful taste, bitter and fruity. This unique chocolate combines the roasted flavors of coffee and hazelnut with notes of both fresh and dried fruit. Underlying hints of black pepper and honey complete the taste experience. We did not compromise. We never do. With Origins we go back to the roots of taste. True Taste!

BELCOLADE Selection Amber Cacao-Trace

 

Our Chocolate innovation expert, Goedele Van der Biest, fights for more taste without artificial flavours.

BELCOLADE Selection is our range of Belgian taste classics. By crafting Amber we take the worldwide top trending caramel flavor to the next level. It takes you from a naturally salted-butter caramel boost to more creamy and cooked milk notes. The secret lies in a slow and gentle conching, enhancing a specific flavor bouquet without adding artificial flavors.

We wrote a quality recipe and adapted the chocolate creation process as needed. We worked and tested until our innovation team achieved. Like cutting a diamond, We took time. With one focus only: creating true taste!
