Herza Schokolade will unveil new chocolate couverture pieces made from specific fine organic cocoa varieties, at BioFach 2019.

The chocolate covering pieces have a multitude of applications: as chocolaty chips in muesli, ice cream or cake. Also they can be used for coating end products, since all four varieties can be melted easily.

The chocolate chips are made from individual varieties of high-quality fine cocoa from different countries of origin. The dark variety consists of 100 per cent quality cocoa from the Dominican Republic. With a cocoa content of 55 per cent, it offers a pleasantly tart, full-bodied and astringent taste with aromatic notes of dried fruits.

The milk chocolate couverture chips are made from pure fine cocoa from Madagascar. The high cocoa content of 40 per cent gives the chocolate an intense, harmoniously balanced cocoa taste with a delicate roasted flavour and fruity elements, complemented by a slight vanilla note and pleasant sweetness.

For manufacturers who set store by organic, fair trade products, Herza offers special milk chocolate couverture pieces made from fine Peruvian cocoa. These have a particularly high cocoa content of 50 per cent. The chips have a subtle milky note and a strong, woody cocoa character.

The range is completed by organic white chocolate pieces finished with a hint of Bourbon vanilla, yet still provides a rich milky flavour. A high percentage of cocoa butter ensures a very soft, delicate melt.
