Their cocoa beans are sourced from a variety of co-operatives and for this bar they have included Conacado Co-operative (Dominican Republic); Association de Productores Cacao Vrae (Peru) and Foraleza Del Valle (Ecuador). All have been certified Fairtrade.
The aroma from this bar is one of intense tobacco which is so intoxicating you just want to keep inhaling deeply. The chocolate is well tempered but unfortunately, it was roughed up in the post so it is not looking its best! The tobacco does come through in the taste but it is very subtle. The chocolate melts quickly on the tongue with a hint of bitterness.
If you're in the catering trade Peros are exclusive stockists of Nero and Bianco chocolate.
