Willie’s Cacao Sea Flakes Chocolate, 44% Cacao
Based in Devon, England, Willie Harcourt-Cooze is as passionate about chocolate as we are about tea! The first premium chocolate maker in the UK to make chocolate from „bean to bar“, Willie personally sources the great single estate cacaos direct from the farmers, then makes them into chocolate in small batches. Making the chocolate this way takes up 21 days and preserves the delicate flavour notes of the beans, which like the leaves that go to make our great teas, or the grapes that make fine wines all taste remarkably different.
The recipe for the single origin bars is simple: cacao, natural cocoa butter and raw cane sugar, nothing that can get in the way of the flavour of the beans. He also uses less cocoa butter than most chocolate makers because that makes the flavours last longer in your mouth.
To make the flavoured bars Willie carefully harmonizes the natural flavour of the cacaos with the flavours of the inclusions.
Needless to say the milk and white chocolate bars match the high quality of the rest: Each recipe uses natural cocoa butter, no vanilla and much less sugar than is usual.
Willie’s Cacao Sea Flakes Chocolate combines 44% Rio Caribe milk chocolate with flakes of Cornish Sea Salt to make a smooth, salty chocolate sensation. And just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, Willie introduced Willie’s Cacao Sea Kissed Almond: the same taste sensation but with the added complexity of delicious roasted almonds.
