Standout, Idukki India 70%
The green hills of the Idukki region, in southern India, known as the spice garden of Kerala, has long had the climate and ecology to grow cocoa. But it was only in 2016, when GoGround started investing in post-harvest processing facilities and farmer education, that fine-flavour cocoa farming started to grow. Husband-and-wife Luca and Ellen, with the support of the Italian RIVA foundation, have built relationships with the smallholder farmers of Udumbannoor, paying them guaranteed weekly payments in exchange for freshly harvested cocoa beans.
The richness of the hills gives the chocolate a sweet raisin aroma and a rich chocolatey flavor. With notes of juicy red apples, cherry, raisin and hazelnut.
