The Belcolade Origins range takes you on a journey to where it all began, to the terroirs of the diverse regions in which our cocoa beans are cultivated. Our experts went to the ends of the earth to discover the cocoa beans that embody the rare, distinctive characteristics called for. And so they set out to explore the countrysides of the Caribbean, South America, Africa, parts of Asia and Oceania and more. The terroirs of these regions cover so much more than just the soil. When combined with local and authentic fermentation techniques, the outcome is cocoa beans packed with natural depth of flavour.
The Belcolade Origins range consists of milk and dark chocolate, all of which come with a spectrum of flavours that transcends descriptors like sweet or bitter, much like wine. This knowledge is deeply ingrained in our Belcolade taste experts, who meticulously analyse each type of cocoa bean & chocolate to unveil their specific flavour profiles. Afterwards, they capture and express those flavours through conching and refining.
The final result is a distinct range of tastes that embodies the spirit of each region of origin. And recipes that are diverse and unique, turning your culinary efforts into delicious and unforgettable masterpieces.
