I have ordered from seventypercent.com as well as Chocosphere, but I could only get Marcolini thru 70%. Now it appears it is no longer available here either. Ugh. I SO wanted to get another of their 85% bars too. Any other source for it?

Unfortunately we were unable to maintain a fruitful relationship with Pierre Marcolini. With wholesale prices in the UK above the retail price for which the bars can be purchased in Brussels, and issues with a relatively short shelf life when compared to the main chocolate makers we were no longer able to justify the wastage we were having to deal with, especially as a high priced item.
This is a shame, because while not all the Marcolini bars were top flight, and some doubts remain over how much of the chocolate Marcolini actually makes, I’ll miss Fleur de Cacao – a great bar we never had any problems with. Unfortunately sales of this bar just couldn’t support maintaining a stock of the rest of the range. I hope some time in the future we will see them back
