Description

The unmistakable sweetness of the cherries and the intense flavor of the brandy, combine perfectly with the São Tomé dark chocolate with 70% cocoa and a slightly spicy and bitter aroma.

Inspired by the specific characteristics of this chocolate, we created our 'São Tomé' dark chocolate spreads with fruit. They are made with a minimum of 70% cocoa from São Tomé, one of the best in the world, so that we can perfume the senses with real chocolate, creating surprising mixtures with fruits of Portuguese origin such as Pineapple from Azores, Orange from Algarve , Cherry from Fundão and other ingredients of Portuguese origin (Port Wine, Macieira Brandy and spices). Internationally awarded in the “Best Taste” category at the 2015 and 2017 UK GREAT TASTE Awards.

Origin of raw materials

Origin of raw materials

  • Origin of São Tomé dark chocolate: Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe was discovered in 1470 by Portuguese navigators, João de Santarém and Pedro Escobar. It was a Portuguese colony until July 12, 1975, when the islands gained their independence. Cocoa is another of the points that unites these two peoples, since it was Portugal that introduced these plantations to the islands. São Tomé ended up being known as the “Cocoa Island”. For this reason, the culture of these two islands continues to be linked by a common past and language.
  • Flavor Traits: 'São Tomé' dark chocolate is bitter, with an aroma of coffee and blackberries, a chocolate with a unique and intense flavor, made with customers who prefer pure and traditional chocolate in mind. Despite having a similar appearance to other dark chocolates, it has a flavor that is nothing like these, and that makes us travel through new sensations. It is 100% cocoa and, unlike the dark chocolates on the market, it has a very strong density and flavor. When we taste it for the first time, we are transported to an absolutely unexpected twist of the senses. It is neither sweet nor bitter, its texture fills your mouth with a paste filled with unique flavor notes.
  • Origin of Fruits: Pineapple from Azores – São Miguel Island in Azores - Portugal, Cherry from Fundão – Fundão - Portugal, Orange from Algarve – Algarve - Portugal, Passion Fruit from Madeira – Madeira Island Portugal, Organic Blueberries and Blackberries – V. N. Famalicão in Northern Portugal.
