DAVAO, PHILIPPINES

Missouri, USA

$13.50

The tourists in Davao, Philippines, often visit for the region’s summery climate and cultured history. Although much of Davao’s story entails Spanish conquistadors and Japanese immigrants, the arrival of the cocoa bean on Filipino soil is often left for the epilogue. When Spanish explorers first planted cocoa in the Davao region nearly 400 years ago, it was an attempt to guard what they called “food for the gods.” Little did they know that what they once hoarded would allow the Davao region to become one of the world’s premier sources for cocoa beans.

 

Askinosie handcrafts this single origin 77% dark chocolate with cocoa beans sourced directly from farmers in Davao.

 

The aroma of madeira, nutmeg & balsamic flavour notes shine through from the outset, but it’s the green flavours that dominate this bar; green grass (cut and fermenting), green bananas, underripe pineapple and a squeeze of lime. On the low-end there is the deep roasted notes of brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
