Absolutely pure: Created from the mildest cocoa I have come across so far. The Naranjillo cocoa is the perfect match for a chocolate with 100% cocoa content - you will only feel cocoa in your mouth. This is cocoa in its pure form - bitter, astringent, and absolutely exciting.

Maker

Zotter

Zotter was started by a husband and wife team in 1987. They have made many strides over the last decade tucked away in a picturesque rolling hills landscape of Austria. Zotter is the only company in Europe that uses all organic and Fair Trade ingredients. They also have sustainable business practices, using solar and geothermal energy to run their entire production facility, and use packaging made from renewable sources. Zotter's philosophy has garnered them many awards both for their business success and chocolate making. They are a family business that adhere to family principles. This allows for a plethora of creative freedom to create fun and exciting chocolate bars. Zotter first produced their "hand scooped" bars with couverture from Valrhona and Callebaut but always dreamed of making their own chocolate, and in 2006 this became a reality. We feature Zotter's Labooko line of chocolates, that feature cacao sourced from all over the world. Zotter has the largest line of chocolate in the world with over 450 different chocolate in their range.

Cacao Region

Huanuco, Peru

Huanuco is a department of central Peru, notable for its diverse range of microclimates across the region. Most of the province’s terrain is taken up by the Andes mountain range, but large swaths remain under cultivation with tea, coffee, and coca as the primary crops. Visitors to the region generally come for camping in the mountains or a trek to one of the many archaeological sites throughout Huanuco.

Cacao Estate

Cooperativa Naranjillo

Cooperativa Agraria Industrial Naranjillo Limitada (COOPAIN) was founded in 1964 by a group of 32 farmers in the Peruvian Amazon city of Tingo Maria. The group’s objectives were two-fold: provide farmers with a dedicated route to market and guarantee fair prices for their products. Initially started as a coffee cooperative, cacao eventually began playing a very important role in the co-op’s business model, to the extent that the cocoa arm of their organization has been rebranded “Cooperativa Naranjillo.” Based firmly in the center of Peru, the many small cacao farms Naranjillo works with are all certified organic, and striving to use cacao as a tool to prevent deforestation in the Peruvian Amazon.

Strong chocolate flavor

This 100% bar, out of my expectation, does not have any sour taste that most dark chocolates have; it is bitter and nutty as is advertised. It has the flavor of a dark toast coffee. So I would recommend it to someone looking for bitterness rather than fruitiness. I also like it’s packaging; there are 2x32.5 packs in one case, very easy to consume for multiple times.

great bar and great chocolatier

every 100% bar i've tried from Labooko has been great. the Ecuador single origin might be my favorite, but this one here, Peru single origin, is very tasty. a good balance of nutty and fruity undertones with a thick/dense and smooth texture.

Roasted coffee

Flavor wise, I would say this bar is not too complex, but it is a rather bitter chocolate with the main focus on its strong roasted flavor, with some nuttiness and a subtle hint of savory. It is also noticeably not acidic unlike many other 100% bars. Imagine roasted coffee. The rather dark brown coloration also suggest that it has perhaps been roasted a bit on the high temperature side.

Texture wise, this is a very finely ground chocolate, and coats your tongue well due to the slight stickiness from the finely ground cocoa particles, which gives it a dense texture. However it is not too sticky or slimy so it still feels pretty smooth despite the slight resistance.

If you like a dense, bitter and roasted 100% bar, this is definitely for you.
