THE CHOCOLATE SHOP
This month we kick off Spring by happily welcoming our old friends at Fresco Chocolate back to Chocolate Connoisseur. Fresco states their chocolate purpose quite clearly on their website — “Fresco makes pure, dark chocolate. By purposefully changing cocoa roasting and chocolate conching, we create new chocolate experiences for your consideration.We use three ingredients: cocoa beans, cane sugar, and cocoa butter.”
Purchasing all their cacao via direct trade, they source ethically and put a deep focus on bringing out the distinct flavor of each and every origin source, using different roasting and conching intensities to create multiple, unique varieties per origin. In other words, Fresco Chocolate brings it, and their chocolate wins awards nearly every single year because of it.
