Grounded Pleasures Drinking Chocolate - one of the most pure and sumptuous chocolate experiences you can find. Sourced from the best cocoa growing regions of West Africa. It exhibits all the hallmarks of superb African grown Forastero cocoa beans and a hint of Trinatario cocoa beans, with delightful high fruity notes.
These beans have been processed with the utmost care from tree to cup. African Red is made using most of the cocoa bean, thus retaining most of the cocoa liquor which is usually reserved for hard chocolates.
The quality cocoa beans together with the minimum of processing means it has very high levels of antioxidants and flavonoids. These are the great "health giving" properties of fine chocolate.
Chocolate and vanilla have been blended since prehistory in the Americas. Both these flavourful wonder foods emerged from the same forests. Vanilla and cocoa are so intertwined geographically, historically and culturally that it is not a real surprise that these flavours enhance each other so well.
