A pearl among the 100% chocolates in the world
Located between tropical mountain forests, Saloy has fresh spring water flowing through its lush farms, giving its chocolate very dynamic notes of herbs, bergamot & cherries. With a very long finish.
With zero sugar, only the true complex flavors of Saloy's cacao beans awaits your discovery. This 100% bar has a great aroma and a long finish.
This bar is made from the finest cacao beans, hand-sorted from a one year's harvest from a very specific farm, hence "single-estate" or "micro-origin".
This bar pays homage to the name of the place where its beans and farmers are from. Like wine, it carries with it all the remarkable flavors of its "terroir" - from the soil, the sunshine, the rainfall that year and the water that nourishes the cacao trees.
Great to Know:
Forty to fifty years ago farmers in Saloy planted their cacao trees. And now their children and grandchildren are cacao growers.
Saloy is small village of 2,100 inhabitants in Davao, City in the southern island of Mindanao.
