Pure chocolate variety – single origin chocolates, fruit bars and many more… Available in 30 varieties, in dark, milk, white and fruit. And in several vegan options. The Labooko range features fine flavour cacao from the best cacao growing regions in the world. Each chocolate contains a rare cacao variety with a vivid history, from the Maya cacao grown in Belize and Guatemala to Dominican cacao harvested in a nature reserve. Cacao is a tool for environmental conservation, it thrives as a mixed crop and in the middle of the rain forest, and it also safeguards the traditional life of indigenous people as well as guaranteeing a decent income for them. Alongside the sublime chocolates, there are colourful fruit bars – their stunning hues and delicious flavours derived entirely naturally from fruit alone – and to top it off there’s a huge selection of vegan chocolate creations. Zotter buy all raw materials in fair trade and organic quality and process them directly in-house, bean-to-bar. They roast, grind, roll and conche with great precision and develop individually processed chocolates for you. Flavour profile Each Labooko features a brief flavour profile on the back and an extensive one on the inside of the wrapper.
Labooko – bean to bar creation of a single origin chocolate
Each single origin chocolate bar contains noble and rare cacao beans from the best cacao growing regions in the world. Each variety of cacao has its own flavour profile, which Zotter aims to tease out. The entire process – the roasting, the milling, the rolling out and even the conching time – is fine-tuned for each bean variety in order to best bring out its individual character and origin. Zotter have applied their innovative FM (fine mist) roasting method in order to really highlight the cacao’s broad aroma. The procedure works by injecting water during the roasting process, which becomes a fine mist that in turn decreases the temperature, making for a gentler roast and vastly improving the cacao’s flavour spectrum. Zotter produce small batches and focus on flavour diversity in order to demonstrate how exciting the world of cacao can be. The Labookos were big winners at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London, collecting several awards and receiving top marks in the international chocolate test.
