Colombian chocolate manufacturer Luker Chocolate has announced the addition of a Single Origin Ecuador 72% dark chocolate couverture to its Selected Origins line.
Sourced directly by Luker, Ecuador 72% is made exclusively with Ecuadorian fine flavour cocoas and is designed as a “pure expression” of the country’s traditional cocoa farming, fermentation practices and terrain. The aromatic dark chocolate embodies Ecuador’s rich heritage and offers its customers the opportunity to experiment with its floral flavours and subtle fruity notes.
Single origin products like Ecuador 72% are growing in popularity, with new product launches registering at a growth rate of 17% over the past five years.
“We designed this couverture to naturally highlight the unique floral notes characteristic of Ecuador’s fine flavour cocoas. This chocolate can be the perfect canvas for high-end chocolatiers wanting to pair with slightly bitter ingredients such as tea or spices, or a luxurious snack for adventurous dark chocolate lovers,” explained Daniela Quintero, Chief of Design and Product Development at Luker Chocolate.
Ecuador 72% comes in a range of packaging including a 2.5kg bag and 20kg boxes, with a shelf life of 24 months for the dark chocolate and 14 months for the milk and white.
