Chocolate enthusiasts, it’s time to sing, dance, and rejoice. Cacao Barry, managed by PT Sukanda Djaya, has officially launched Purity from Nature, three new varieties of premium chocolate couverture. Meet the dark 70% Ocoa, the dark 65% Inaya, and the milky 41% Alunga.
Less sweet, more intense, pure, and less processed.
Those traits are why Cacao Barry’s Purity from Nature series are heads and shoulders above their competition. They responded to the customers’ demands, did elaborate research, and optimized cacao beans fermentation, the key step in extracting pure flavors of cocoa. Cacao Barry came up with a method called Q-Fermentation, which utilizes microorganisms that are naturally present in the plantations. The result is intense cocoa aroma and taste. Or as I love to call it, pure chocolate heaven.
Having tasted Ocoa, Inaya, and Alunga in their original form, as chocolate drinks, and in some cakes, the verdict is easy. Those three will give you a legit, roll-your-eyes, mmm-mmm kind of pleasure. The chocolate was really, really, really good. The smell. The richness. The way it caresses your tastebuds. Purity from Nature is chocolate on the next level.
During the launch event at Peacock Lounge Fairmont Hotel, we were fortunate to had their The Peacock Signature, a stack of leather drawers filled with luxurious cakes, scones, and canapés. The twist? The cakes were made using Purity from Nature chocolates. Tropical Almond – Hazelnut, for example, is a combination of Almond Genoise, Tropical Alunga, and Lime Zephyr Ganache. Caramel Hazelnut, on the other hand, is a beautiful stack of Alunga Chantily, Hazelnut Biscuit, and Vanilla Caramel. Not stopping at that, the cherry on top of those cakes is the atmosphere. Besides the infectious enthusiasm from Cacao Barry team, the presence of pastry chefs and representatives of participating cafés adds to the positive vibe. So much skills, creativity, and awesomeness in one room, united by chocolate. This is truly chocolate heaven.
