Ocho Beekeeper Bar 70%
New Zealand Manuka Honey, Bee Pollen and Puffed Amaranth are added to OCHO's 70% single origin dark chocolate in this bar.
The amaranth and bee pollen combine to give a soft crunch to the chocolate and bring a mild toasted flavour,
while the manuka honey adds a strong honey flavour for a lingering finish reminiscent of summer in a beech forest.
Ocho is an artisan bean-to-bar chocolate maker based in Dunedin. Being a bean-to-bar chocolate maker means that Ocho
imports the fermented and dried beans and make the chocolate from scratch. This includes roasting, grinding, conching and tempering
the chocolate before moulding it into bars or thins. We use simple equipment and our processes are very hands-on because none of
our equipment is automated. The beans are roasted and processed in small batches so some variations are possible from batch to batch.
We don’t blend any of our chocolate, so each batch is fully traceable back to the farmer co-operative where the beans were grown.
