Single Origin // Dominican Republic
Dominican DARK & Volcanic Salt
The NOIR COLLECTION is a set of three chocolate bars that represent three of the best, most sort-after chocolate origins. I do very little to alter these fine chocolates, simply pairing them with the perfect salt to bring out their innate complexities. Here the tropical fruit and citrus notes in Dominican chocolate are given heft by the mineral salinity of volcanic black salt from the Hawaiian archipelago.

SAVOR: This fine coverture chocolate is best enjoyed slowly. Allow the chocolate to warm slightly on the palette before chewing. This releases the chocolates subtle aromas and complexities.
STORE: The chocolate is best stored either in a wine cellar fridge (16-18c 60%RH) or in the warmest part of a home fridge (top shelf on the door side). It is best enjoyed 6 months from the date of production found at the back of the box. Once opened, keep away from strong scents, high humidity and direct sunlight.
NOTE: Temperature fluctuations may cause melting or an appearance of a whitish fat bloom on the bar. Once cooled chocolate taste and texture is unaffected, and is safe for consumption.
