Why You Need to Know About Single Origin Chocolate

Singel Origin Chocolate - www.chocolateandmoredelights.com

How do you like your chocolate? Single origin or blended? Kinder or Lindt?

My guess is that you choose chocolate by brand, so your answer is likely to be either Kinder, Lindt, or any other brand that satisfies your chocolate cravings!

Indeed, many chocolate lovers don't know much about chocolate beyond the top brands on the market.

As a chocolate aficionado, you should also be able to tell whether your chocolate is single origin or blended.

This article presents what you need to know about single origin chocolate so that when you pop into a café for your daily chocolate fix, you know exactly what you’re getting.

Let’s get into it.

What’s Single Origin Chocolate?

What’s the meaning of single origin chocolate?

It’s really simple.

Single origin chocolate is manufactured from a single variety of cocoa beans grown and harvested in a specific region.

However, the debate about whether origin refers to a region in general (such as South America) or a country in particular (such as Brazil) has never really been settled.

Nonetheless, this is an important debate, because a single variety of cocoa beans can grow in two or more regions or countries.

For example, Forastero, which makes up 85% of the world’s cocoa production - grows in a number of countries, including Brazil, Ghana, and Malaysia.

Does this mean a chocolate bar that features Forastero Cocoa beans harvested in Brazil and Ghana is single origin? Absolutely not.  

But if you’ve got candy produced only from Forastero Cocoa beans harvested in either Brazil or Ghana, you’re staring at a single origin chocolate bar!

Why Does It Matter?

Why is it important to know whether the chocolate you consume is single origin?

Find out.

Origin Defines Chocolate Flavor

Cocoa beans from different regions have different flavors.

You see, cocoa beans grow on the cocoa plant. Like other fruits, type of soil, climate, and other growing conditions define the flavor of cocoa beans

Even though the ingredients and production techniques used by a manufacturer can spice up the taste experience of chocolate, the origin of the beans makes a big difference.

This means if the cocoa beans are naturally bitter, there is only so much a manufacturer can do to substantially change the taste of the final product.

Therefore, knowing the origin of various cocoa beans helps you understand why some chocolates are sweet, bitter, salty, savory, or acidic.

Develop a Better Awareness of Chocolate Origin

If you’re passionate about chocolate, then you ought to care about your favorite chocolate beyond its taste, aroma, and mouthfeel.

Understanding its origins gives you a better perspective of the conditions in the fields where the beans used to make your favorite chocolate are grown.

For instance, you will know whether the farmers use organic or inorganic farming methods. Such information can change your views about different brands, especially when you learn that some manufacturers use inorganic cocoa beans.

Summing Things Up

Knowing whether chocolate is single origin or blended can shape your preferences.

But if you’re a purist looking for chocolate with a unique flavor that reflects the origin of the beans, always choose single origin chocolate. The higher quality Trinitario beans are typically used for the production of single origin chocolate. 

Do you prefer single origin chocolate? We'd love to hear your thoughts!

Need to Boost Your Brain Power? Try Chocolate

Need to Boost Your Brain? Try Chocolate

Looking for an excuse to satiate your sweet tooth?

Well, you're in luck - especially if you're a chocolate lover.

And if you're an American--there's a good chance you are--Americans consume 3 billion pounds of chocolate each year! That is a lot of chocolate, however, Switzerland is still top of the list with a consumption of 9.1 kg per person per year, followed by Germany with 8.4 kg per person per year.

Yes, it sounds too good be true. But there is a lot of evidence out there that shows that consuming chocolate in moderate amounts (key word-moderate) can help boost your brain power!

Let's take a look at some of the top proven brain power benefits of chocolate (best done while nibbling on some chocolate truffles). 

Protect Against Free Radical Damage

Turns out, your brain loves oxygen, maybe just as much as you love chocolate.

Unfortunately, this love makes it highly susceptible to free radicals: unattached oxygen molecules that attack your cells and cause premature brain cell aging. 

Luckily, there's protection out there to keep these free radicals at bay. This protection comes in the form of antioxidants, which help to neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals.

And you know what food contains antioxidants? Chocolate! Cocoa powder contains more antioxidants than other superfoods like acai, blueberry, and pomegranate powders. 

Sharpen Your Memory and Focus

Chocolate isn't just rich in any antioxidant, it's rich in flavonoids-an antioxidant that works to penetrate in the brain regions involved with learning and memory. 

A recent study published proves chocolate's memory boosting powers even further. 

This 30-year study monitored the chocolate consumption of 968 participants, ages 23-98. The study measured verbal memory, working memory, and visual-spatial memory. 

And the results were a big win for chocolate lovers. Those who consumed chocolate at least once a week performed better on cognitive memory tasks than their nonchocolate counterparts.

Get That Blood Flowin'

Those flavonoids are at it again. Not only do the flavonoids contained in chocolate help boost memory, they also help boost blood flow. 

One study found that drinking two cups of hot chocolate increased blood flow to the brain for 2-3 hours. 

This boost in brain circulation led to a 30 percent improvement on a memory test!

This increased blood flow could also help boost short-term memory as well as prevent mental decline in seniors. 

A Lifetime Guarantee

Looking for a present for grandma that is both good for her health and enjoyable?

Chocolate here once again for the win. Chocolate can help fight strokes and brain-related illnesses like dementia and Alzheimer's.

Just recently, Britain jumped on the chocolate-loving, dementia-fighting train. A new dementia-fighting pill made entirely from chocolate hit the country's shelves recently, thanks to the piling evidence of chocolate's super powers. 

Don't Worry, Be Happy

Just chill out man- with some chocolate. 

Chocolate boosts the production of endorphins-feel-good chemicals that give you that "runner's high." 

It also packs in a good amount of magnesium, an essential mineral for reducing stress. 

Time to 'Unwrap' Some Brain Power 

Now that you know all about chocolate's awesome brain power benefits, it's probably time to start eating some chocolate, eh? (She says with a pile of wrappers next to her). 

But don't just pick any ol' chocolate-your brain deserves the best! Take a look at our finest selection of bars, spread, drinks, and nougats.

Have You Tried Coffee And Chocolate – The Match Made In Heaven?

Coffee And Chocolate - A Match Made In Heaven

Some things just go so well together. Things like bread and jam, strawberry and cream, milk and honey, spice cake and vanilla, fish and chip are matches made in heaven.

There is nothing as magical as a perfect dessert pairing. It can be soulful and decadent. Pairing our specialty coffee with our organic chocolate collection can be a very pleasurable experience.

The Chocolate

There are many reasons why people love this beautiful combination. The most common reason is that coffee and chocolate are, much more similar than any other combination dessert. Confused yet? Don't be! Chocolate comes from cocoa. The cocoa plant grows at high altitudes in South America. Each pod contains about a hundred nibs, and that’s where the magic is made. Cocoa butter and cocoa solids are made after the fermentation, extraction and roasting process. This is how chocolate is formed. The cocoa solids determine how dark the chocolate will look. White chocolates are made entirely of cocoa butter.

The differences between our specialty chocolate and other chocolates you find at local supermarkets are some additives, and chemical solidifiers are added to make the end product. It is because they help with the shelf life and the structure of the surface. A good chocolate will melt under warm temperature. Cocoa solids also tend to be on the bitter side. This is why sweeteners like sugar and milk are often added to make the chocolate tastier. So, while it is sometimes more convenient to get the publicly sold chocolate, it is also good to keep in mind that the actual nature of the cocoa is not being utilized.

The Coffee

Our organic coffee beans are directly grown at altitudes of 1600 to 2000m above sea level. This makes the end product aromatic and delightfully smooth. It usually has a slight tartness and has a long-lasting finish. It works wonders as an espresso but can still be as great as a filter coffee.

Good coffee just like specialty chocolate requires a lot of attention during preparation. This makes you totally in control of what can be added. For a generation of busy people, with tight schedules, coffee is usually the best thing. Some people, though, too jaded to care about how their coffee is made. As long as it's coffee, it would serve its natural purpose. While it is great to mix up your coffee in your little coffee maker or buy your coffee from a dispenser drip in a styrofoam cup and be on your way, it is sometimes good to make an exception. Try the heavenly match and mix our delicious organic drinking chocolate into your coffee. We usually mix the Adoratio Schokoladenkunst 70% organic drinking chocolate with an espresso. Nothing better than starting the day with a Mocha.

Just like fine wine and cheese, coffee tastes so much better when paired with the right chocolate. Pairing our carefully made coffee and organic chocolate should be your new treat. It would leave your taste buds tingling.
