I was wondering if anyone knew anymore about this organic single origin bar?
When I opened it, the chocolate looked very matt and consequently had quite low expectations. I had a pleasant surprise. Although a little waxy and slow to melt, the chocolate has a good intensity and balance. Floral and fruity, with a hint of banana.
This reminds me a little of Mora Mora chocolate by Malagasy.
I’d like to know where they source it from ideally?

I do not know who supply Montezuma but I was struck that Tesco also have an organic 70% peruvian chocolate bar and wondered if the supplier was the same for both. I was interested in Montezma’s dark milk a while back and was told that Belcolade supply some of their organic milk chocolate but I have no idea if this is still the case. A lot of organic milk couverture only comes in pretty big packs like 20kg so you have to be sure you want to try first!

I’m fairly sure that those are different chocolates. I have eaten quite a lot of the Tesco bar of late – but it tastes very different. The Tesco bar is very moist, strong cocoa flavour. The Montezuma was much more waxy and floral.
I read somewhere else that it might be Belcolade, but they don’t seem to have a 70% Peru product on their website.
