Made with Cacao sourced from Idukki, one of the popular hill stations in the Western Ghats of Kerala known for their lush green farms, rolling hills, and moreover, a place apt for cacao trees with excellent conditions for growth & quality. We handpick cacao to gather only the best ones to make a bar of chocolate.
The pods are opened & exposed to oxygen for fermentation, a process that helps in developing the cacao flavour. The beans are then sun-dried and sorted with the help of farmers at a dedicated fermentation and drying center at GoGround, Idukki, Kerala.
The cacao beans are then carefully roasted to develop their flavour profile. The temperature and time for roasting determine the flavour. Every bean is roasted to perfection.
The evenly roasted beans are cracked open and winnowed to separate the thin papery shell or husk from the pure cocoa bean, called “nibs”.
The nibs and organic cane sugar are ground together with granite stone grinders to form a paste. The process takes anywhere between a few hours to a few days which largely impacts the flavour profile. The heat generated due to the friction between granite wheels melts the cacao fat into rich chocolate liquor.
What is the secret to getting the perfect snap when you break a smooth bar of chocolate? Tempering the chocolate with precision at the right temperature.
At Rakkaudella, we believe every bite and every bar should be exceptional. Over a glossy dark bar, we sprinkle these nuts generously which gives a varied taste & texture, uplifting the whole chocolate consumption experience.
Our chocolate bars are made in small batches to retain quality & freshness, always.
