Original Beans Piura Malingas 75% Piura Valley, Peru Dark Chocolate Bar Review

I’ve tried several craft chocolate bars made by Original Beans and they have all been great, but their Piura Malingas 75% bar is extra tasty.  As soon as I opened this bar I knew it would be special just from the aromas.  It is definitely one of the top single-origin bars I’ve had this year. This organic and vegan bar is made with Peruvian Nacional beans from Piura Valley, Peru.

I hope you can get your bean-to-bar loving hands on one of these!  I purchased mine at The Chocolate Project in Victoria, B.C.

Color;  Medium brown.

Nose:  Green apple, green grape, cocoa.

Interview with Josef Zotter of Zotter Chocolate with Victoria Cooksey

 

Note:  This interview was first published in my original Blogspot site on 2-3-17.

I’m very please to bring you this interview with Josef Zotter of Zotter Chocolate.

A special thank you to Barbara Dolleschal of Zotter Chocolates US LLC for facilitating this interview, providing some of the information for the interview, and for the translation work!

 Note:  My questions had to be translated, and then the answers were translated back, so please keep that in mind when reading this post.

Zotter Chocolates is a bean to bar, organic, fair trade chocolate manufacture located in Austria. I purchased Zotter Chocolate for the very first time at The Chocolate Project in Victoria, B.C. in September of 2016, and then I re-stocked my supply at the NW Chocolate Festival in Seattle, WA last November 2016 where I was also lucky enough to meet Barbara Dolleschal of Zotter Chocolates US LLC, and thus the idea for an interview was born!
