Jolonch Stone Chocolate 60% Cocoa 500g

A Bold and Textured Artisan Chocolate

Hand¬≠craft¬≠ed choco¬≠late, the old-fash¬≠ioned way‚ÄĒ√† la pedra or stone-ground. The choco¬≠latiers at Xoco¬≠lat Jolonch achieve an intense¬≠ly bold, earthy choco¬≠late with a dis¬≠tinct¬≠ly grit¬≠ty tex¬≠ture per¬≠fect for a taza de choco¬≠late on a cool, rainy evening.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Hand¬≠craft¬≠ed using tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al meth¬≠ods employed by Jolonch‚Äôs choco¬≠latiers since in 1770, this par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar choco¬≠late is made only of cocoa, sug¬≠ar and rice flour. Stone-ground (the process of grind¬≠ing the cocoa through stone disks) is what cre¬≠ates the dis¬≠tinct¬≠ly, bold grit¬≠ti¬≠ness of this choco¬≠late bar.

Jolonch Stone Choco¬≠late 60% Cocoa evokes an intense cocoa fla¬≠vor. Made with less sug¬≠ar com¬≠pared to sweet and creamy Euro¬≠pean-style choco¬≠lates, this tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al Span¬≠ish choco¬≠late is bold and intense, with a rich, earthy flavour and a dis¬≠tinct¬≠ly grit¬≠ty tex¬≠ture sim¬≠i¬≠lar to the Fil¬≠ipino tablea.

PREPA­RA­TION

While won¬≠der¬≠ful on its own, Jolonch Stone Choco¬≠late 60% Cocoa is best served as a rich dip¬≠ping sauce for chur¬≠ros and pas¬≠tries or used to pre¬≠pare bev¬≠er¬≠age recipes. We rec¬≠om¬≠mend serv¬≠ing a warm Span¬≠ish taza de choco¬≠late by melt¬≠ing some Jolonch Stone Choco¬≠late with hot milk, infused with a cin¬≠na¬≠mon stick for that addi¬≠tion¬≠al warm¬≠ing spice.
