1919 62% Dark Chocolate
This unique chocolate bar from 1919 Chocolate PH won Silver in the Academy of Chocolate 2020 Awards, under the tree to bar category—their first international competition.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
This is for people who want something with the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. The 1919 62% Dark Chocolate evokes dried fruit and caramelized coconut milk.
This Batangas bar is a shiny, deep brown color, dotted with the company’s signature hexagons. It’s perfect for when you want a dark chocolate, but just a little sweeter.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Have this as an after-dinner treat, with a nice, steaming cup of coffee. It will be the perfect meal-ender!
ALL ROADS LEAD TO CHOCOLATE
Karl and Kay are a husband-and-wife duo who are the brains behind 1919 Chocolate, a tree to bar cocoa company operating in Malvar, Batangas. Kay comes from a family of cacao farmers, and in 2019, after she brought home beans from their 100-year-old farm, Karl began a personal project: creating homemade chocolate bars. With the encouragement of friends and family, who had enjoyed their various creations, 1919 Chocolate PH was born.
Store your chocolates in a cool, dark place, ideally between 18 to 24°C. You can use the refrigerator, but place the chocolate in an airtight container to keep the moisture and humidity out—and retain its full range of flavors, of course!
