Cacao Review has outdone themselves this year with Collection No. 2, a very limited (only 200 made of each item, ever) chocolate set featuring Chocolate Naive, Marou, Omnom, Ritual and even a bar by Cacao Review. While a few of the chocolate bars are available for individual purchases (50 individual and 150 box sets) the only way to try Chocolate Naive’s Nano_Lot drinking chocolate is by going for the whole collection (ahem…holiday gift perfection, just saying).
I’ve been a fan a Chocolate Naive for quite some time now and have enjoyed watching, and tasting, the progression of taking what started as good bars and overtime experiencing Chocolate Naive elevating their craft chocolate to even higher levels of great taste.
Chocolate Naive is a craft chocolate maker in Lithuania. I’ve tried several of their bars before these particular ones in the Nano_Lot collection, and have even more bars I’ve purchased that are now in my collection to post reviews on soon, so I was especially excited when Chocolate Naive’s founder Domantas Uzpalis sent me these two bars from his new collection.
Nano_Lot Chocolate bars are made in very limited amounts from unique, high quality cocoa with emphasis on education and continued exploration into the world of rare, high quality chocolate. I hope my reviews on these bars also help inspire you to continually seek out more bean-to-bar chocolate and add to your tasting palate.
Nano_Lot Elizabeth Agudelo:
Per the inner card of information the cocoa beans used in this bar are listed as “FTA, a clone selected by Colombian Cacao Federation”. This bar is made of the first yield from four year old cacao trees from a section of Villa Gabi that was renewed by Elizabeth Agudelo with “experimental clones selected from the old hybrids”.
The pouch this bar comes in is made by Trappist Monks (the order was founded in 1098, so 1,098 bars), the cocoa butter is from the Philippines, and is from the first pressing (which gives it the “dirty” white), the cocoa nibs are aged for two years, and covered in chocolate (the nibs, and chocolate are from Tanzania). And this bar has goat’s milk in it. Talk about complex!
This 72% 2014 Serian Malaysia dark chocolate bar is the 2nd bar I’ve had by the London, England based craft chocolate maker Beau Cacao. This particular bar is #302 out of just 3,800 bars that will be made from the 2014 harvest.
