The ultimate chocolate malt ball.
 
The über malt and chocolate combo is here. I've combined our luscious milk chocolate with lots of all natural brewer's malt...pure, straight malt goodness without fillers or extra "stuff." It starts with a crisp crunch then descends into a warm, soft, slow melt.

These beans come from the Markham Valley of Papua New Guinea, which is on the North side of the island. Minda was excited to work with beans with such overwhelming flavors and complexity. This bar doesn't have the smokiness of our last PNG bar, but instead has its own unique tart notes of pomegranate and raisin, with a subtle hint of tobacco.
origin = New Guinea

A very interesting crystallized texture.
 
The opacity on the chocolate bar is an original characteristic of the Modicana chocolate due to the traditional way of production at low temperature and it is a guarantee of the integrity of the cocoa butter present in origin, not added.

A burst of flavor on initial tasting!
 
The Markham River Valley in eastern Papua New Guinea is home to the single estate plantation where our Trinitario cocoa is harvested, wood-box fermented for five days then dried for up to three days before shipping. Rich volcanic soil and up to 102 inches of annual rainfall help create cacao with exceptional complexity that we highlight with different roast levels and conche durations. (Dark roast, medium conche)

Had a nib-like texture (little crunchies).
 
Our Dark Milk bar offers the best of both worlds: the creamy, caramel flavor of our milk chocolate united with the rich cacao taste of dark chocolate. We blend stone-ground cacao beans, sourced from the best growing regions, with fine organic milk to create a chocolate with perfectly balanced sweetness and richness and a subtle texture. Enjoy!

Unrefined texture, lots of crunchies. After tasting about 400 different bars of chocolate, Jamaica à l'ancienne remains my #1 favorite.
 
Jamaica á l'ancienne melds the rustic textures of stone-ground Jamaican cacao nibs and coarse cane sugar to the deep flavor of Scharffen Berger Unsweetened Chocolate. It evokes chocolate's Caribbean roots.
