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.

Full-flavored but delicate criollo

I loved this bar, definitely one of the best Peru bars I have tried. The high cocoa percentage is really nice as it lets the flavor come through strongly, but the criollo cacao is so mild and sweet that there is hardly any bitterness. Excellent!

Worth the wait!

It took some time for my nose and palate to "warm up" to this bar. After a taste - smell - taste - smell, I finally was able to pick up on aromas and flavors. I get a very strong cherry/raisin aroma. The flavors are very creamy for what I anticipate in a higher percentage bar. The texture is smooth. I do get some tart and sour notes that are not unpleasant, but I can't pick out grapefruit or lemon. I like sour and tart so I am not put off by the flavor. Once the sourness passes on the finish, I get a lingering toasty brownie nut flavor that is nice. My goal is to transition my collection to higher (>80%) bars and this is promising. I think it may be a staple in my stash.

Labooko Peru Criollo Cuvee 82%

One of my favorite Labooko bar! Mild and luxurious mouthfeel. It's abundant and warm. It's bitter but like a 60% or 70% unsweetened dark milk bar. Yes, it has a fresh milk cream sublime notes. No acidity or strong fruity notes. The roast nutty profile shows up followed by berry flavors, raisins, black olives, and lemon. The pungent flavor profile of this bar shows up later well balanced by the raisin biscuit light sweetness. Aftertaste: tingling (berry/lemony) effect on the tip of your tongue, bitter/light astringency, and roast cocoa aromas in the back of your throat which last for a long time.

Delicious and gift-worthy!

A very solid high percentage choice - clean and fruity with an excellent mouth feel. The interesting, informative packaging and the double bar configuration make this feel like a little luxury.

The One with Prince on It

Zotter puts two small bars in the package, and considering it’s nearly 2 1/2 ounces, it’s a good value, especially with the quality of the chocolate. But value aside, this is a really good bar. I haven’t been disappointed with anything by Zotter, but I keep coming back to this one. I had doubts because I once read that too much Peruvian chocolate tastes like sour dirt, and I had to agree. That’s not the case with this bar, no sourness, just sharp, clean chocolate. One day, my husband and I were sampling a few bars. When I asked him which one he liked best, he said, “The one with Prince on it.”
