Gran Chililique is a cacao of excellence, which means it is possible (though still challenging) to make a truly fine bean-to-bar craft chocolate.
We've trialled a lot of different approaches to the dark milk, an inricate and nuanced cacao which can be easily unbalanced. This bar takes the fruity nature of Gran Chililique and rounds out the edges. As always, we want to put the cacao front and centre, we love this bar because it's shows off the bean in full balanced glory. Creamy, light, full of fruity brightness, this 62% is great example of a delicious dark milk!
Sweet and creamy, light and tropical fruity it's a dream.
A review from Hannah (CR)
I’ve chosen this brilliant Gran Chililique, Peru 62% coconut milk from @solkiki_chocolatemaker to complement a sweltering day like this one.
On the nose, there are subtle tropical notes (mainly pineapple for me). On the first taste, I was struck by the delightfully creamy texture.
As it develops, this creaminess reminds me of a light vanilla ice cream - exactly what I crave on a hot day
The creamy notes are anchored by high notes of juicy tropical fruits and more subtle stone fruits. The light fruity body matures into a long and refreshing finish.
For anyone who’s looking for a bar in this heat and enjoys a vibrant, tropical dark milk, this is ideal - and the @chocawards and @guildoffinefood agree with me!
