How is the Chocolate couverture made?
Chocolate is a food with powerful flavours. It can be soft and strong, crunchy and melting, in endless gourmet recipes. To offer so many possibilities, we use chocolate of different origins, such as Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana or Indonesia.
The chocolate comes from the beans of the cocoa trees, a tree that grows in the shade of banana trees. Its flowers turn into pods. Those pods are harvested twice a year. Beans are removed and ferment for a few days, then crushed. After this step, we obtain a cocoa paste which is the basis of the products sold on MEILLEURduCHEF.com, cocoa butter, cocoa powder and Chocolate couverture.
