Eldora 70% Dark Chocolate with Red Chili, Pink Pepper & Chipotle
A dark chocolate chili blast! Hold on, it's going to be a spicy wild ride with this one...
Original, cohesive, delicious and explosive flavors in each Eldora bar! 70% Zorzal, Dominican Republic cacao paired with red chilis, pink peppercorns, chipotles, black salt and vanilla. Red chilis lend a blast of super spicy hot chili flavor. Pink peppercorns add yet more heat, layering spicy bites with fresh vegetal flavor. And chipotle peppers add smokiness and depth. A little shake of salt and vanilla makes it all come alive. WOW! Another go-to chocolate bar for me this summer 2020.
A percentage of Eldora's profits go to support Kiva, Heirloom Cacao Project & Rainforest Project.
A Note from Eldora founder and chocolate maker, Steve Prickett:
"So, I set about learning the chocolate business, not from an eater, but from a maker. Where do you start? I needed to learn the basics of chocolate making and fast. I turned to Ecole Chocolat, a Canadian company with online courses. That gave me a basic background and understanding of the business, tasting, and developing a quality product. From there I just rolled up my sleeves, found basic chocolate equipment and got started. My first eight batches were fails. The chocolate actually tasted good but didn’t look good. But I was failing at a fast rate which meant I was also learning at a fast rate. Soon, I was learning all the buzz words to the business. I was making chocolate bars, pieces, and truffles. Then I asked myself, how does a Chocolate Maker know about chocolate all over the world? I needed to make that chocolate. So, I set about making chocolate from all the regions of the world. Today I’ve made chocolate from 24 countries, comprising 31 different origins. And I’m looking for more."
And then I asked myself, what if I could turn the process around? Instead of buying beans, and making the next order from them. What if I could buy the beans, understand it’s Terrior due to its origin, fermenting process, and drying process, and make the chocolate best suited for that bean? Instead of potentially canceling out a flavor, I could enhance it by the way I made the chocolate and what ingredients I blended with it.
