Fresco Brings Its Award-Winning Lineup to Chocolate Connoisseur

This month we kick off Spring by happily welcoming our old friends at Fresco Chocolate back to Chocolate Connoisseur. We’re also sticking to the Washington state chocolate scene for another month, as Fresco and K’ul are basically neighbors — and, as we often see in the chocolate world, good friends as well.

Chocolate Connoisseur Staff Writer Rene Zimbelman wrote a Fresco Chocolate – In Focus feature back in 2017, one which owners Rob and Amy Anderson loved so much, they made it the core of Fresco’s About Us page. You can read all about them right here in the full article.

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.

We’re very excited to deliver Fresco to you this month, and we’re pretty certain you will absolutely love the Deluxe Collection they’ve put together!

Offer ends April 20th, or while supplies last.

Fresco Chocolate’s Deluxe Collection

Kul Chocolate Pure Dark Chocolate Bar

212 Oko Caribe 72% Light Roast Bar

Fresco hand-selected the highest quality Organic and Fair Trade Oko Caribe cacao available for this unique chocolate. Their light roast highlights naturally occurring acidity with hints of raisin and fig, while days of stone grinding achieve a silky texture.

Next, the chocolate is heated, mixed and aerated, this is conching. Fresco’s subtle conche step softens the edge from the cacao’s natural character while leaving its complex flavors in the forefront. A small amount of added cocoa butter enhances the chocolate’s silky texture as it melts on your palate.
