Dark São Tomé Single Origin

Description

From the remote island of São Tomé in the Gulf of Guinea, having a climate and an ideal territory for its cultivation, Icam has selected a cocoa among the finest of African origin.
Characteristic cocoa profile, aromatic, intense, begins with a subtle and evanescent acidity and a pleasant note of astringency; the marked bitterness and the broad amplitude of the typical aromas of cocoa emerge immediately, along with nuances of tobacco. It ends with a long finish of cocoa and a final balanced bitter.

Recipe with no lecithin

Uses

Operating recommendations

In chocolatier

Particularly suited for fine pralines; ideal to implement a range of chocolate bars, solid or with inclusions; for making ganaches and hot chocolates.
Can be used in coatings, even with a continuous tempering machine. Recommended with dried fruit. Goes very well with strong aromas; excellent pure with rum, whisky, cherry and sweet wine (Passito).
