Choficionado - Taste Like A Pro

The Choficionado bundles each explore a dimension of chocolatemaking and come with a double A4 information sheet to guide you through the tasting, provide context, inform and entertain. 

Written by Bob and Iris, it's like having the chocolatemakers lead the session.  Each Choficionado bundle can provide great tasting entertainment, perfect alone or in a group to learn and share more about fine chocolate.


Red Pod vs Yellow Pod - What's in a colour?


This set contains two bars that have been made from diferent coloured pods, separated by its red or yellow colour, from the same trees on the Kablon Farm in the Philippines. After harvesting and separated by colour the beans are treated identically at every stage... from fermentation bins to finished bars!


We have been making our award winning 70% Kablon Farms bar for a number of years, for our standard bar the pods have never been separated by colour, until now. We wondered, what happens when you separate the pods by colour? Will the taste vary when you separate the cacao harvest by colour? We think it does, what do you think?


Try this bundle to taste how pod colour influences the flavour of Kablon cacao and help us support further research at Kablon Farms.  You'll also receive a double A4 sheet of insights and info from Iris and Bob on the topic and the resulting chocolate.


The cacao trees at Kablon Farms on the West coast of the Philippines produce yellow and red pods.  All other Filipino cacao is sourced from Davao - on the Eastern coast.  Traditionallly, yellow and red pods are combined during fermentation and while pods share consistent genetics, the 50-or-so cacao beans inside each pod can vary.


Available only as a Choficionado - Taste Like a Pro taster pack where you can experience for yourself and be part of this exciting experiment at the speartip of the fine flavour cacao movement.
