100% Schokolade

These are your (and our) favorite 100% chocolates

Das sind Eure (und unsere) liebsten 100% Schokoladen
From the dusty mouthfeel to the concrete-like feeling in the throat: when we ask you in ourchocolate tastings what associations you have with 100% chocolate, the answer is mostly negative. We are all the more pleased that you bravely tasted your way through the intense chocolates and gave us a lot of feedback. We have now compiled your and our favorites in this list.
It doesn't matter whether you do without sugar, want to experience the pure pleasure of cocoa beans or are just curious: 100% chocolate is very trendy! And because there are more and more people who are interested, there is also a constantly growing offer. But 100% is not the same as 100%! In particular, poor-quality 100% chocolate (or 99%) just get stuck in your throat. Unlike chocolate around 70% , 100% gets down to business. There are fewer fine aromas to discover here, but full cocoa bean power! We tried our way through many, many 100% boards (somebody's gotta do the job ;-) ) and – coupled with your feedback – selected the best of the best. So here are our top favourites:

The fruity one: AKESSON – Madagascar 100% Criollo

Åkesson's 100% Criollo consists - as the name suggests - of 100% pure Criollo organic cocoa beans from Åkesson's own plantation Bejofo Estate in Madagascar. Despite the high cocoa content, it comes with a fruity, slightly sweet acidity. Subtle notes of citrus and red berries complete the whole. Both for chocolate purists and those who want to venture into the 100 region. One of our absolute favorites and also one of the most ordered 100% in the Theyo shop #justsayin
The rare Criollo cocoa beans for this bar come from the in-house Bejofo Estate, which is located in the Sambirano Valley in north-west Madagascar. Only around 2 tons of Madagascar's Criollo cocoa beans are harvested in the Sambirano Valley each year and processed into great chocolate. You want to try 100% Madagascar bean power? Then this way, please !

The aromatic one: FIRETREE – Solomon Islands 100% chocolate

A melt-in-the-mouth 100% chocolate – is that even possible? We think: the Firetree 100% is the chocolaty proof of that! It is very aromatic, almost spicy, with aromas that range between liquorice, aniseed and vanilla. At the same time, it has a delicate glaze that is second to none - only very few 100% bars achieve this! For 100% - i.e. sugar-free - we find Firetree chocolate almost "snackable". And not only that: the cocoa beans of this chocolate are not only delicious but also very rare. Firetree sources the fine cocoa beans directly from the Solomon Islands and gently processes them into delicious bars in small batches in London.

The melt-in-the-mouth: Chocolate Tree – Belize 100%

This 100% chocolate comes with Belizean cocoa beans, which are turned into delicious chocolate in Scotland at Chocolate Tree . Despite the high cocoa content, it has a very delicate melt. The high acidity typical of Belize is perfectly balanced in the bar with fine organic cocoa butter. The cocoa beans for this bar come from a Bolivian agroforestry cocoa farm that is particularly committed to a biodiverse environment.
