Provenance is incredibly important to us at Hundred House Coffee, our characterful specialty coffee is ethically sourced from eco-conscious growers from around the globe.
We wanted to extend that ethos to chocolate and we are stoked to introduce a single origin Ecuadorian hot chocolate.
Grown at Farm of the Future in Cerecita Valley, Ecuador. The 640 hectare land produces high yielding cacao and focuses research resilient farming techniques, pre and post harvest processing, ultimately, with the aim to establish the best cocoa farming practices that are climate-smart and enhance sustainability.
The variety of cacao that makes up our hot chocolate is Nacional, a rare variety that makes up just 2% of cacao produced world wide. This is largely due to the crop being almost wiped out due to a massive epidemic in the 1920’s. Grown only in Ecuador it is now a source of national pride for producers.
This is a beautifully balanced single origin hot chocolate. bursting with fruity flavour to keep those grey days away.
With no additives, preservatives, or anything artificial it's just pure deliciousness.
Recipe based on 6:1 ratio.
30g hot chocolate in the cup whisked with water to form a paste/syrup. Steam 180ml whole milk and pour together. Serve and enjoy!
